Barcelona look to move on from Neymar’s departure by laying down a marker against champions Real Madrid in the Super Copa.
The Camp Nou plays host to the clasico as their former Brazilian hero takes his Paris Saint-Germain bow away at Guingamp.

For Barca, the team brings back Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi to lead the attack for the Blaugrana under new manager Ernesto Valverde. Despite losing Neymar, it’s pretty great if you still have the Uruguayan and Argentine superstar. The biggest question is who will be the third starter on the front line for Barca? Gerard Deulofeu showed well against Chapecoense and could get the nod again. However, losing Neymar could really show against a very high quality Madrid team.

As for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to make his first start of the season. The Portuguese superstar hasn’t done much over the course of this preseason. However, he did have a brief appearance in Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup triumph over his former club, Manchester United. The rivals have a very talented midfield with Toni Kroos, Mateo Kovacic, Casemiro, and Luka Modric in the fold. Despite that, Modric is suspended for this match. Overall, Zinedine Zidane has an excellent team with talented choices.

Barcelona will certainly have their work cut out for them over this two-leg playoff. Luckily for the Blaugrana, the first leg of the playoff is at Camp Nou. The fans will certainly appreciate and cheer for their team to pull through what has been a mess of a summer. With Lionel Messi in the fold, Barca has the ultimate equalizer. Messi made an impact in the last competitive El Clasico. He scored his 500th goal in second half stoppage time at the Bernabeu to at least make Real Madrid sweat before they won the league.

Real Madrid

Navas, Casilla and Luca; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo; Kroos, Casemiro, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic, Ceballos; Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Lucas Vázquez
