50′ 0 – 1 Gerard Pique scored an own goal as Real Madrid took the lead just after the halftime.

80′ 1 – 2 Cristiano Ronaldo

The eagerly awaited double header between the two Spanish giants might give us glimpse of the season to come. Real Madrid are virtually unchanged apart from letting James Rodriguez leave on loan to Bayern while Barcelona are hit with a massive transfer of Neymar heading to PSG. Real Madrid will be as strong as last season while Barcelona is surely set to miss Neymar contribution from the left side of attack. Who will replace him ? is remain to be seen but it’s highly likely Barcelona will sign both Philipe Coutinho and Ousman Dembele to cover the gap left by Neymar.
Last time these two meet in a competitive game was an incredible 3-2 win over Barcelona thanks to Messi’s late injury time goal against 10-men Real Madrid. We can expect similar exciting game but the result might be in Real’s favour over the two leg of Spanish Super Cup.
