The teams Real Madrid and Barcelona, along with Atletico Madrid, once again exemplify what it is to be a true champion and to play fairly regardless of the circumstances.
Specifically, this came about as a result of the clubs stated above making the decision to provide assistance to another Spanish team in advance of the Supercup. The competition for this year will take place at Al Nassr, which is located in Saudi Arabia. In order to convince the Spanish Football Association to consent to the four participating clubs playing in the exotic country, the Arabs offered them forty million euros.
Real Madrid and Barcelona both make a gesture that is worthy of a champion.
Specifically, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Osasuna will be competing in the event because they finished in first and second place in the league, respectively, and they were the winners of the Spanish Cup. The participation of Osasuna may come as a surprise given that they were the champions of the previous season, but they are a name that is not as frequently seen at the highest level of Spanish football.
In light of this, the first semi-final of the tournament will take place on Wednesday, January 10, at 21:00, and will feature Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. On Thursday, January 11, at the same time, Barcelona will compete against Osasuna.
On the other hand, another aspect that has everyone’s interest is the manner in which the Arabs will divide the money that they have put on the table. The final is set to take place on January 14th. Because the sheiks have promised the Spaniards forty million euros, a portion of that amount will be distributed to the clubs.
The money, however, will not be distributed in an equitable manner, just like the TV rights in Spain. Real Madrid and Barcelona will each receive €6 million, while Atletico Madrid will receive €3 million. Osasuna will only receive €1 million.
On the other hand, in an effort to make things more equitable, the Spanish FA has requested that the league giants transfer €200,000 to Osasuna. Osasuna will receive €1.6 million for this experience in Saudi Arabia as a result of the agreement reached between the three major clubs. That is, unless, of course, it also takes the prize home with it also.
Despite the fact that Osasuna, who was a revelation in the previous season, is currently in 12th place in the rankings, he is hopeful about his chances of winning the Supercup. This is in response to Barcelona’s unsatisfactory performance in their most recent Spanish Cup encounter, which was a round of 16 match versus Barbastro, a fourth-tier league.
Fermin Lopez scored the first goal for the Catalans, and Rapinha added the second goal in the 52nd minute. However, the final score was quite close. Rapinha made it 2-0 a few minutes later. First, Robert Lewandowski expanded the deficit from the penalty spot in the 88th minute, but Marc Prat made it 3-2 also from the penalty spot in extra time. The final minutes were full of emotions for Barcelona fans, who couldn’t think of witnessing a historic humiliation. Marc Prat made it 3-2 from the penalty spot in extra time.
It is expected that Saudi Arabia would play host to the announcement of the winner of the Spanish Super Cup for the third year in a row. These two greats of Spanish football have each brought home a trophy from the last two editions of the competition, and this week they will be competing for yet another prize. Atletico Madrid is making a comeback after being absent from the competition the previous year, while Osasuna is the pleasant surprise in this last four.
With Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid competing against one other in the first semi-final of the mini-tournament, we will see a Madrid derby. When the Ducchi were playing in La Liga earlier in the season, they were successful in inflicting the sole loss that their city rival had suffered in any competition up to that point. Both Morata and Griezmann scored three goals for Atletico Madrid, which led to the most likely result at home by a score of 3-1.
Nevertheless, Real is the most popular option at the moment, and this is a fully understandable choice.The Whites are currently in a better condition for themselves, as they are currently in first place in La Liga and have won five games in a row in all competitions. On the other side, Atletico Madrid has a far lower rate of victory, and in the league, they have only managed to achieve victory once in the past four matches. Aside from that, it was no surprise that neither of the teams in the King’s Cup event encountered any challenges over the course of the weekend. They are currently in the eighth round of the competition.
When it comes to this match, the data that might assist us in selecting a wager is the performance of both teams when they are playing away from home. In La Liga, Real Madrid is the top team, and in the Champions League, they have won all three of their matches against other teams. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, has only won the championship on three times when they were playing away from home, and Feyenoord is the only team that has ever won the Tournament of the Rich. At this point in time, the Dushechi have suffered four consecutive defeats when playing away from home in La Liga.
Recent times have seen a fairly even competition between the two teams, with Real even failing to win in regular time on three separate occasions in a row. A King’s Cup match that took place at the beginning of the previous year resulted in a draw during the regular time period and a victory for the “Royal Club” after the extra time period. Even though it was a penalty shootout, Real was victorious in the most recent match between the two teams for the Spanish Super Cup. This event took place four years ago. Today, I anticipate that the symbolic hosts will emerge victorious in the duel once more, and this time, it will take place at the scheduled time.
Real Madrid was taken aback by the selection of the referee that the Spanish Football League made for the semi-final match between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the Super Cup tournament of the country. For the capital derby that will take place in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday night, Javier Alberola Rojas has been given the responsibility of directing the game.
The referee who officiated the most recent meeting between the two sides, which took place in September and resulted in a 3-1 victory for Diego Simeone’s team at home, is the same official. The Whites have not suffered a single defeat from the beginning of the season before that point.
In the sixth round of La Liga, the match that took place at the Civitas Metropolitano was marked by a number of rulings that were deemed to be contentious. Real Madrid even went so far as to publicly acknowledge that they had been misled, with their club television citing four instances in which Rojas had supported Atletico Madrid.
Jude Bellingham was called for an offensive foul just a few seconds before Alvaro Morata scored Atletico’s first goal, which was scored in the fourth minute. This was the first of these situations. The subsequent protest was regarding the goal that Eduardo Camavinga had scored, which had been disallowed, and would have resulted in the score being 2-2 soon before halftime. After that, however, a penalty was awarded to Antonio Rudiger, who had never played the ball in that particular scenario. However, just a few seconds before the goal was scored, he was offside on a centering pass in the penalty area, and he took a home defender back with him. During the extra time of the first half, Jose Jimenez was shown a yellow card rather than a red card for a foul that he committed on Rodrigo. This was despite the fact that Rodrigo was the last player in his team’s defense. This was another controversial circumstance that was addressed. In the 66th minute, los Blancos may have been granted a penalty for playing with Mario Hermoso’s hand, but they were not awarded the penalty. This was the final allegation.
In addition, Atletico expressed their displeasure with the referee, but only for one particular incident: the ultimate dismissal of Bellingham for committing a severe foul on Angel Correia.
Aside from that, Javier Arberola Rojas hails from the Madrid metropolitan region. Over the course of his career, he has managed a total of eight Real matches, during which the team has suffered three losses and four victories. As for Atletico, he has led them to three defeats, but they have only played 13 matches.
