Real Madrid conquered the Camp Nou stadium through a combination of midfield discipline and explosive finishing and the win in what theoretically is the toughest place for them to visit, must see them established as favourites to retain their title, reports Xinhua news agency.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has delivered a remarkable trophy haul in his short spell in charge, yet he knows life in the Bernabeu dugout is never secure. "We are focused on the game and whatever the talk is, we are only thinking about that", Barcelona official website quoted Ernesto as saying.

As for the results in pre-season games, the Blaugrana recorded victories Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid, but that was all with Neymar in the lineup.

The 21-year old figured 39 times for Real last season, scoring ten goals - including strikes in the UEFA Super Cup and Champions League final. "We can't change it, but we'll try and make sure he plays on Wednesday".

Firstly, Real's best player Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly on his way out of Madrid after growing frustrated with the tax evasion case now plaguing him. It was an even game and they had a strong central midfield, which made playing inside hard.

The introduction of Cristiano Ronaldo added even more pep to Madrid's step and the Portugal global thought he had scored their second and firing home at the far post, although his celebrations were cut short by the off-side flag.

Zidane said striker Cristiano Ronaldo is fit to play on Sunday at the Camp Nou, despite having only had a short summer break after playing for Portugal in the Confederations Cup. It'll take a courageous man to bet against them doing just that.

Like in England with the Community Shield, in Spain the winners of the league play the winners of the cup in the Super Cup.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid Super Cup is scheduled for 10 pm local time, 1:30 am IST, 9 pm BST.

There have been some absolute classics between Barcelona and Real Madrid in recent seasons and it would be a surprise if these upcoming matches are any different.
