FULL MATCH PREVIEW
After the first leg of super cup 2012, all eyes turn to the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid comes into these match experiencing one of its worst start to the season in history without a win in three matches.
FC Barcelona look to win their first title of the 2012 season as they head to the Santiago Bernabeu and take on Real Madrid. Tito Vilanova’s men come into this game off a comeback victory against Osasuna on Sunday, Lionel Messi did not have the best game in Pamplona, but Leo was able to bring his team back with two goals within a four minute span to get the three points while it’s biggest rival Madrid stutter to a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Getafe on sunday.
While the capital side boss came out yesterday in a press conference that he is certain that his troops are able to overturn the deficit if they put in the right performance, but stressed that he was not overly concerned with the outcome on Wednesday’s match after a poor start to their Liga defence.
“Everything is open tomorrow,” he told reporters at press conference.
“Tomorrow we will try to defend whenever [Barcelona] have the ball and attack when we have it. We must try to score from the first minute.
“The team does not have to change anything from the way we played at Camp Nou. We had a good game.
“Winning the Supercopa and beating Barcelona is not important to me. My priority is knowing what happened against Getafe [on Sunday] – whether it’s a psychological problem. “What’s important is knowing whether that was a one-off”, reiterated the blancos gaffer.
The champions have since added Luka Modric to their squad, and Mourinho is looking forward to the Croatian making an impact, and also confirmed that concussion-victim Pepe is available for selection.
In the same vein blaugrana boss Tito Vilanova has warned his wards that Realmadrid will be dangerous with the new acquisition of Luka Modric.
