Tip Reasoning

  • Real Madrid have only lost two of their last 17 cup finals
  • Bilbao have won just four of their last 14 games
  • Real are on a run of one defeat in 19 outings

Bilbao hoping to defend their crown

Athletic Bilbao beat Barcelona in last year’s Supercopa final and this year Real Madrid stand in between them and a third crown.

Their record against Real Madrid is not good, however. Los Blancos have already beaten Bilbao twice this season, as well as winning five of the last six meetings between the two sides.

Marcelino García Toral’s side are also not in the best of form. They beat Atletico Madrid to reach the final, but have only won three of their last 13 games against La Liga opposition.

Real heading for more glory

It has been an outstanding season so far for Real Madrid, and although lifting the Supercopa would hardly be top of their priority list, it would be a strong starting point in terms of silverware.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are top of La Liga, through to the last 16 of the Copa del Rey and the last 16 of the Champions League, courtesy of just one defeat in 19 games.

They did need extra-time to beat Barcelona in the semi-final of this competition, but are now unbeaten in three after a shock defeat to Getafe and have scored at least two goals in 13 of their last 16 games.

I predict a Real Madrid win in this one, selecting 2-0 as a correct score.
