Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch Spanish Super Cup final
Real Madrid vs Barcelona face each other this Thursday for the ninth time in effort to bring the Spanish Supercup home.
Real Madrid and Barcelona lock horns in the first Clasico of 2023 when the perennial rivals contest the Spanish Super Cup final in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. Both sides needed penalties to progress from the semi-finals, with Madrid beating Valencia, while Barca overcame Real Betis.
Defending champions Real Madrid can clinch a record-equalling 13th Super Cup if they win, while Barca are chasing their 14th crown, having not won it since 2018.
Real Madrid and Barcelona will take a brief pause from their battle for Spain’s La Liga title and they will instead wrestle for the first piece of silverware in the Spanish domestic season: the Supercopa de Espana.
The two giants will face off in the Supercopa final in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia after both survived their respective midweek semifinals via penalty shootouts during which their goalkeepers came up with decisive stops.
Real Madrid are not exactly in the best of form during this recent stretch of the season, but they will take heart from the fact that they dismantled Barcelona 3-1 back on October 16 in league play, handing the Blaugrana their only loss of the league season thus far.
But Barcelona also came up with a head-to-head win of their own in the summer, though it was during preseason in a friendly the two played in Las Vegas. That 1-0 victory came on a goal from then-newcomer Raphinha, who is by now a regular on the right wing for his team.
This will be the ninth time that these eternal rivals are facing off in the Supercopa competition with Real Madrid having won on seven occasions. Los Blancos are vying for six trophies available to them this season, having already captured the European Super Cup in May.

A Real Madrid team already missing the injured Aurelien Tchouameni and David Alaba saw three more players pick up injuries in Wednesday’s semifinal. But only right-back Lucas Vazquez (right ankle) won’t recover in time for the final, forcing Dani Carvajal to start the match.
Luka Modric was rested against Valencia in the semifinal, and he returns as expected to start the final. It was thought that Eduardo Camavinga, who’s reportedly not 100 percent, would drop to the bench, but instead it’s Rodrygo who falls out, as Federico Valverde moves up into the attack. Ferland Mendy also returning to the XI after Nacho Fernandez served as the starter against Valencia.
Real Madrid confirmed lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1. Thibaut Courtois (GK) — 2. Dani Carvajal, 3. Eder Militao, 22. Antonio Rudiger, 23. Ferland Mendy — 8. Toni Kroos, 12. Edudardo Camavinga, 10. Luka Modric — 15. Federico Valverde, 9. Karim Benzema, 20. Vinicius Jr.
