How to watch the Supercopa de España final

Real Madrid vs Athletic Club - Where to watch the Supercopa de España Final

January 15, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The first big title of the season will be defined by Los Blancos and the Basque Lions. Follow this clash with our detailed guide.

We are down to the last two teams in the Supercopa de España, and both of them will want to make a statement with a win here. Real Madrid will want to end their ongoing title drought and win their first title under Carlo Ancelotti, while Athletic Club will be eager to win back-to-back titles after last year's success in this competition.

The current league leaders make it to this clash in high spirits after their complicated but convincing win over Barcelona in the semi-finals. That win represented the third one in a row for Ancelotti's men in all competitions, and fourth out of their last five matches. The team's offensive prowess has been put on display by watching Los Blancos score ten times in their most recent three matches.

Athletic Club also enter this game on a roll, as Marcelino García Toral's men have also won three out of their last four. Curiously, their last defeat came at the hands of their rivals on Sunday back in December. In order to get to this game, Athletic rallied back to beat Atlético Madrid with a 2-1 score in the semi-finals thanks to a nice finish by youngster Nico Williams.

Despite what the general public may think, Athletic have the upper hand over Real Madrid in terms of absences, as they will get to this clash with a full squad to choose from. On the other hand, Real Madrid will have to deal with the absences of at least three players, but that list could increase in the hours prior to the game if David Alaba, who missed the semi-finals due to a muscular problem, is unable to recover from that issue.

Considering how interesting the recent matches between these teams have turned out, we can only hope for a similar kind of game to decide the winner of the 2022 Spanish Super Cup. Here are the main things to keep under consideration prior to the game's kickoff at King Fahd Stadium.
