The first leg of the Super Cup in Spain with the return match in Madrid on Wednesday. This will be an interesting match since Neymar went to PSG and Barca are yet to replace him, while it’s also been a story of departures for Real as well with Morata and James Rodriguez both leaving the club. Besides, that Neymar left Barcelona there’s another factor that shows Barca’s weakness – the fact that they have a new manager in Ernesto Valverde. Recent history has shown that the Clasico is a fixture that takes a while to get used to for managers as many of them lost the first matches. However, Real was a class apart from the rest of European team previous season and they will give their best to use the absence of Neymar and the new manager to get a good result.
