Real Madrid to Win

While Athletic Bilbao is the defending champion of Spanish Super Cup and it seems that playing in Saudi Arabia suits them, we have to go with Real Madrid for this match.

After all, Ancelotti's team has dominated so far in La Liga and they have already beaten Athletic Bilbao twice in the league this season, so we expect the same to happen on Sunday.

Form, team news, and probable lineups for Real Madrid vs Athletic Bilbao

While Athletic Bilbao is trying to defend their Super Cup title, Real Madrid is looking for their first trophy of the season. So, let's take a closer look the teams:

Real Madrid

The season for Real Madrid has been great so far since the team is first in La Liga, they will play in Top 16 stage of Champions League, they are still in Copa del Rey, and now they will play in Spanish Super Cup final. So, all the trophies are still available to them and it will be interesting to watch the season unfold for the most decorated club in Spain.

As in the semi-finals, Mariano Diaz and Gareth Bale will also miss the final match with injuries, while David Alaba is also questionable after missing the semis with a hamstring issue. On top of that, Dani Carvajal will also miss the game with coronavirus.

Real Madrid predicted lineup:

Courtois – Vazquez, Militao, Nacho, Mendy – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius

Athletic Bilbao

Same place, another year, and once again Athletic Bilbao will play in Super Cup final. After beating Barcelona in the final last season, now they will have to face the other Spanish giant, Real Madrid, after they already eliminated the reigning champions Atletico Madrid a few days ago. Winning this trophy again will be a huge confidence boost for Athletic Bilbao, who is currently ninth in La Liga.

Once again, the Basque team will be without Ander Capa, Unai Nunez, Unai Vencedor, and Asier Villalibre, who are all injured and unavailable for this game.

Athletic Bilbao predicted lineup:

Simon – De Marcos, Yeray, Martinez, Balenziaga – Berenguer, Vesga, D Garcia, Muniain – Sancet, I Williams
