Spanish Super Cup 2012: Real Madrid vs. Barcelona Live Stream & Start Time Info
Real Madrid and Barcelona will once again meet in the Spanish Super Cup as the two greatest rivals in club football begin another season of fierce clashes.
Barcelona won last year's fixture, but despite seeing some wonderful football over the two legs, the fixture is largely remembered for the incident where Madrid manager Jose Mourinho poked then-Barcelona assistant and current manager Tito Vilanova's eye.
Who will win the Spanish Super Cup?
Both clubs have a lot to prove this season. Barcelona was unable to defend its Champions League title after losing in the semifinal to Chelsea. They were also beaten in the league title race by Madrid.
Mourinho's men lost in the semifinal of the Champions League following a penalty shootout with German club Bayern Munich. Even though they won La Liga, their No. 1 goal is European glory.
