The second semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup will take place in Saudi Arabia, in Jeddah, on the arena bearing the name of King Abdullah Sports City.
So, from 9:00 pm on Thursday, a confrontation awaits us, which will be followed by the whole planet with its soul in our mouth.
◾️I do not know if I needed to specify, but it is probably the strongest team in Spain, at least in the previous season.
◾️She won the title in the 2018-2019 Primera edition with an 11 point lead over the 2nd place, which has been her opponent since.
◾️He now leads the standings, but is on par with the great rival Real Madrid.
◾️Athletic Bilbao, Granada and Levante are the only ones who have defeated it this season.
◾️He has 3 draws in the last 4 clashes, so he has some problems.
◾️Not missing from the group moved to Saudi Arabia are the stars Pique, Jordi Alba, Griezmann, Suarez or Messi.
◾️The Argentine star will be more than sure extremely motivated to raise a new trophy with the Barça group.
◾️Comes to this competition from the position of vice champion of Spain. For her it was practically a successful season because she surpassed it in the ranking on the local rival who is based on the Bernabeu.
◾️Now it is a bit far from the first 2 positions, being at 5 points from them, but it is not an insurmountable difference. It was imposed in the last 4 duels, so we can say that Morata and the company have excellent morale.
◾️Last summer 3 of the 4 that formed the bottom line left the team, it is about Juanfran, Filipe Luis and Godin.
◾️But that seems to have not mattered because Diego Simeone’s band has kept its specific and still receives very few goals.

Football Prediction of the Day Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid
I go to Barcelona’s hand in the second semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup.
It is a more homogeneous team because it did not make many changes last summer, and this is especially important in derbies, when the players motivate each other.
Messi and the company come after 2 draws on foreign land, but in both they were tied at 2 after they drove.
Prior to this, they had won 3 in a row away from home, 2 in strong troops, Inter Milan and even their current opponent.
Atletico Madrid will not do great when they do not play on Wanda Metropolitano.
As a proof, in the previous 8 meetings outside Madrid he has only one success, and at Juventus or Leverkusen he lost.
Bet Tips: Barcelona
