Spanish La Liga

Starting XI: Barca v Real

Spanish Super Cup

Teams: FC Barcelona v Real Madrid

Date: 13 August 2017

Venue: Camp Nou

The first El Clasico of the season will take centre stage this evening, as FC Barcelona welcome Real Madrid to the Camp Nou in the Spanish Super Cup.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 22h00.

Ernesto Valverde's charges head into the encounter on the back of a 5-0 win over Chapecoense on Monday evening.

This will be the Catalan giants first game with out Neymar, who departed for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record deal.

Barca will be without Andre Gomes and Arda Turan for today's encounter, after being left out the match day squad.

Real, meanwhile, come into the clash on the back of a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup.

Zinedine Zidane will have to do without Luka Modric, who is suspended, while Jesús Vallejo misses out through injury.

These two sides last met in the Super Cup in the 2012-2013 campaign, as the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate with Los Blancos winning on the away goals rule.

Here's how they line up:

Barca: Ter Stegen; Vidal, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic; Messi, Suarez, Deulofeu.

Real: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro; Kroos, Kovacic; Isco; Bale, Benzema.
