Real Madrid score, updates, from Supercopa semifinal

Barcelona vs. Real Madrid score, updates, from Supercopa semifinal

Wherever it’s played and whatever the stakes, the Clasico will never cease being must-watch. On Wednesday, eternal rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet in Saudi Arabia in a loser-go-home Spanish Supercopa semifinal.

After a difficult start to the season, a managerial change and a previous 2-1 league loss to Madrid, Barcelona will actually have some hope to spring the surprise in this one: New signing Ferran Torres will make his debut for the Blaugrana and he’ll start from the opening minute after his $55 million transfer from Manchester City. Midfield star Pedri is also on the bench.

Real Madrid is the favorite in the match and rightly so: The Merengues have been a machine in the return of Carlo Ancelotti as manager and they’ve been led by rising star Vinicius Junior and the ever-dependable Karim Benzema. Their scoring exploits have Madrid at the top of La Liga, 16 points ahead of Barcelona, and eyeing more silverware in Saudi Arabia.

The Spanish Supercopa pits the La Liga winner and runner-up against the Copa del Rey winner and runner-up in single-game semifinals and a final which takes place on Sunday. The Barcelona-Real Madrid winner faces the winner of the Atletico Madrid vs. Athletico Bilbao semifinal happening Thursday.
