Barcelona is going head to head with Real Madrid starting on 12 Jan 2022 at 19:00 UTC at King Abdullah Sports City stadium, Jeddah city, Saudi Arabia. The match is a part of the Super Cup.
Away from the starlight of certain superstars, Barcelona and Real Madrid have become platforms for some of the world’s top young talents to flourish. And while Los Blancos still have a large part of their veteran core to support the young framework, the same cannot be said about the Blaugranas.
The competition that used to boast of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Sergio Ramos now turns eyes full of expectation onto Pedri, Gavi, Vinicius Jr, and Karim Benzema. Irrespective of the temporary dip, there is no doubt that Barcelona vs Real Madrid will stand out amongst all other football clashes once again in the coming future.

Xavi called up a 26-man squad to travel to Saudi Arabia. However, three of those names- Frenkie de Jong, Ansu Fati and Ronald Araujo are travelling without receiving the medical green light. The participation of the three stats remains under a cloud, and so does that of Ferran Torres and Pedri, who join the squad late after conquering COVID-19.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen will start in goal on the night. The German has suffered painful El Clasicos in the past two years, with nine goals conceded in the last four clashes against Los Blancos.

The right-back position is where the spotlight will be shining bright on the night. Xavi’s selection of the man to take on Vinicius will count for a big part of the final result. Given Alves’ age and lack of speed, Ronald Araujo may be chosen to start on the night, despite not being fully fit. Without a speck of doubt, Jordi Alba will start at left-back.
In midfield, Sergio Busquets, Nico and Pedri could start. Though the Canary Islander is just returning from COVID, his recovery is said to be complete. Given the weight of the clash, Xavi could opt to unleash Pedri for the first time in his managerial spell.
