My winner is Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup 2012 because I don’t see any chances for Real Madrid in the first leg. There are many reasons behind this prediction, but the most important one is the poor performance of Real Madrid against Valencia. It was the first match of La Liga and Real Madrid had only a draw. Madrid seemed unorganized. It is a different match, different tournament, but it is not going to be very easy to recover against Barcelona. Madrid seemed clueless, especially Christiano Ronaldo. And what about Pepe? He is not available for another heinous crime with Leo Messi. So, both defense and attack of Madrid are not ready yet to face Barcelona. Let’s get started.
This high voltage match will be played at Camp Nou—the paradise for Barca players. Barcelona is the winner of the title of Spanish Super Cup 2011, so it has much more confident than its arch rival Real Madrid. No doubt Tito Vilanova will be going for a BIG win with its attacking attitude which he learnt from Pep Guardiola—the legendary coach of FC Barcelona. And it is not an easy job to stop Barcelona when it ATTACKS. To be honest, Barcelona cannot afford even a draw in the first leg of Spanish Super Cup 2012. Leo Messi, the wonder boy, will be the REAL threat to Real Madrid. We have seen him as a supreme performer in El Clasicos. In fact, he scored thrice in the Spanish Super Cup 2011. According to the stats, Leo Messi scored staggering 13 goals and eight assists against Real Madrid in 19 El Clasico. You see, how devastating he is in El Clasicos. So, we do expect some mesmerizing performances from this Argentine International. All Barca players along with Leo Messi will be desperate to take a revenge on Real Madrid.
Barca did have some problems in its defense; it seems it is yet to become the Great Wall of China. But Barcelona did not make some many mistakes in its defense when it comes to El Clasico. So, we do expect a REAL MADRID PROOF defense in the first leg of Spanish Super Cup 2012. Real Madrid is the winner of the last clash between these two GIANTS, but that is a HISTORY now.
On the other hand, Mourinho, the special one, should have some plans for this Spanish Super Cup 2012, but the bitter truth is that most of the time all his plans all failed. We should not expect something supernatural from neither Jose Mourinho nor from CR7 in this clash. Have no doubt, Mourinho does have confidence to beat Barca. He will try his best to beat the new coach of Barcelona. But it could be a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE for him.
Football is a game of great uncertainty, but now, Barcelona has the EDGE. All Barcelona needs to do is execute its plan according to the direction of its new coach in the first leg of Spanish Super Cup 2012. Chances are high that we do not have to wait for the second leg of Spanish Super Cup 2012. Visca el Barca. Click on if you want to learn Visca el Barca translation.
