It's Spain's turn for their season starting prestige kind of friendly. Barcelona plays Real Madrid in the first-leg of the Spanish Super Cup on the weekend soccer TV schedule. That means another version of the El Clasico that's not quite the same as the regular El Clasico. Hey, at least this time its in Spain. Also on the weekend soccer TV schedule, the Premier League teams continue their season kickoffs.
Barcelona vs Real Madrid in the first-leg of Spain's Super Cup on Sunday on ESPN at 4pm. Why does it take 120 minutes to decide Spain's Super Cup winner? It's a fair question considering the glut of games we've already seen involving at least one of these clubs this summer. There's a trophy at the end, slightly mitigating the feel that this is just another friendly.
