1X2 prediction Barcelona slipped into the final of the Spanish Super Cup
The Barcelona team became the first finalist for the Spanish Super Cup after beating Real Sociedad in Cordoba after extra time and penalties. Regular time goals were scored by Frankie de Jong in the 39th minute for the Catalans and Mikel Ojarsabal in the 51st for the Basques. There were no new goals in overtime and so it came to penalties. Real Sociedad players missed three times from the penalty spot, as the Catalan guard Mark-Andre ter Stegen deflected two of the shots. In the other semi-final on Thursday night in Malaga, Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao will broadcast the second finalist, who will face Barcelona in the final on Sunday in Seville.
Barcelona without Messi tonight? In their last match, Barcelona beat Granada 4-0, showing good play and giving optimism to their supporters. At the same time, Real Sociedad `lost steam` and in its last five games in La Liga recorded only one success, against three losses and one draw. The Spanish Super Cup is being held in this format with four teams for the second time in its history since 1982. Curiously, then the winner was Real Sociedad, after beating Real Madrid in the final of two matches with a total score of 4:1.
As expected, the superstar Lionel Messi, who has an injury after the match with Granada and does not train today, remained out of the accounts of the Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman.
The Argentine was saved for the final over the weekend. Out are also names like Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique, Sergi Roberto and Philippe Coutinho. The first position in the match was created by the Basques in the third minute, but Alexander Isaac`s header went over the door, guarded by Mark-Andre ter Stegen. The game via 1x2footballtips continued to be dynamic, with Real Sociedad`s attacks looking more dangerous. This led to the 11th minute, when Christian Porto managed to make a shot in the direction of Barca`s goal after a pass from Mikel Ojarsabal, but did not find the target. Barcelona created the first danger in front of Alex Remiro`s goal in the 17th minute. Then Ousmane Dembele broke on the right and managed to shoot, but the Basque defense managed. Real Sociedad organized a counterattack, which ended with an attempt by Isaac to transfer Ter Stegen, but the German guard managed. In the 20th minute, Real Sociedad created another danger at the gates of Barcelona, but two Basque players - Merino and Isaac, prevented each other and the Catalans managed to organize in defense. In the 25th minute, the Catalans made their first shot in the goal line through Martin Brightway, but Remiro saved.
The pressure of Barcelona intensified and in the 29th minute the Dane headed home after a cross by De Jong on the right, but his shot did not find the door. In the final 15 minutes of the first half, the Catalans took the initiative and played more confidently.
This led to the 39th minute, when after the attack by Brightwaite, the ball hit Antoine Griezmann, who advanced from the left and centered in the penalty area. Frankie de Jong towered over the defenders of Real Sociedad and opened the score with his head. There was danger in front of Ter Stegen`s goal, but the German goalkeeper was solid again. The result was preserved until the break.
