Real – the strong favourites
Real Madrid should all it takes to eliminate Bilbao tonight as a possible final against the eternal rivals of Barcelona will be highly expected by the whole world and will generate higher incomes. The right-back Dani Carvajal and Rodrygo will not be able to take part in the game. Real is fully determined for a tough battle tonight.
No chance for Basque derby in the final
Bilbao has a new coach in the face of the experienced Spaniard Marcelino Toral. The new coach started with 2-3 loss against Barcelona. And just in the second game after his appointment he is to face the other Spanish giants, this time in a semi-final for the Super Cup. It is difficult to evaluate the current condition of Bilbao but we have already seen some nice stuff during the game against Barca.
Real Madrid is obliged to take this game. It should be taken by any means. Everything is allowed during a war. We expect an intense and dynamic game.
