The much awaited second leg of the Spanish Super Cup is set to come to a head with Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino stoking the fires ahead of kick off by stating that he believes his side are much better equipped to come away with the title.
Barca stormed to yet another league title last season and though Martino admitted that he expected Atletico to topple cross city rivals Real Madrid in the Copa Del Rey final last season he can’t see any other outcome than his side reigning supreme once again.
Neither side have any fresh injury concerns going into the game, but Atletico will be able to welcome midfielder Tiago Mendes back into the fold after he missed this weekend’s clash with Sevilla through suspension.
All eyes will likely be on David Villa as the former Barcelona striker opened his Atleti account against his old club in the reverse fixture last week. The 31-year-old capped off a free flowing counter attack with a sublime strike and will no doubt want to get one over on his old employers.
