Starting XI: Barca v Bilbao

FC Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao will aim to get their first piece of silverware of the season when they lock horns in the Spanish Super Cup final.

Spanish Super Cup Final

Teams: Barcelona v Athletic Club

Date: 17 January 2021

Venue: Estadio Olímpico de Sevilla

The Catalan giants needed penalties to overcome Real Sociedad in Tuesday's semi-final while Bilbao defeated LaLiga champions Real Madrid 2-1 on Wednesday night.

After a shaky end to 2020, Ronald Koeman's men look to have found their form as they enter the clash on the back of four successive victories.

Lionel Messi was not in action on Tuesday night, but he has returned to side for the tonight's final.

The Basque club is one Messi's favourite opponents, having registered 26 goals and 11 assists in 34 matches previously.

Bilbao's win over Los Blancos was only their second in the last five encounters, although they did beat Barcelona when they last met in a cup competition last year.

Here's how they line up:

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba, Busquets, De Jong, Pedri, Messi, Dembele, Griezmann.

Athletic Bilbao: Unai Simon, Capa, Yeray, Martinez, Balenziaga, Muniain, Vencedor, Dani Garcia, De Marcos, Raul Garcia, Williams.
