Todays football predictions for Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid in a match of the 1/2 finals of the Spanish Super Cup. The match will be played on Thursday night starting at 9:00 pm at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
The Barcelona team is a favorite in the Super Cup tournament. The Catalans will be all the best for the tournament in Saudi Arabia. Barcelona start 2020 not in the best way after drawing 2:2 in their first league match of the year against the Espanyol team.
The Ernesto Valverde-led team had an advance in the match, but missed the victory at the end. Barca failed to keep their advances after staying with a man less in the second half, and then draw 2:2 is no longer ahead of Real Madrid in the title fight – the two teams have equal points 40.
Barcelona won the Spanish Super Cup last season after beating Sevilla 2-1. Now the team will be ambitious to lift the trophy again, but will it be able to reach the final of the tournament?
Atletico Madrid will be a tough contender for the champions. The Madrid players are in good shape with four straight wins and are now only 5 points behind the leader. Atletico succeeded 2-1 against Levante in their first 2020 match. The team led by Diego Simeone recorded success at their visit to Betis with the same result at the end of 2019, and previously beat the teams of Lokomotiv Moscow and Osasuna by 2-0.
Atletico last participated in a Super Cup dispute in 2014 when it lifted the trophy after defeating rival city Real Madrid with a 2-1 overall result. In my opinion, however, the Madrid team will not win the tournament this season, as I predict their relegation to the 1/2-finals and Barcelona’s victory in this match.
