Supercopa de España

Real Sociedad

Ronald Koeman’s side are without Lionel Messi, meaning the attack consists of Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann.

The Blaugrana captain arrived at the stadium with his left leg in a bandage and it is unclear at the moment how long he’ll be out of action.

La Real line up for the contest as expected.

Either Real Madrid or Athletic Club await the winner in the final.
