The first leg of the Spanish Super Cup has already given us a taster of what is to come this season regarding Spain's big rivalry, but now it is over to the youngsters who will battle it out this weekend to decide which team's academy reigns supreme.

Barcelona B will travel to Madrid on Saturday night to take on newly promoted Real Madrid Castilla in Spain's second division.

It is the first time in fourteen years that the two teams will meet, and after both narrowly losing on the opening day of the season each team will be eager to bag themselves three points.

The last time the two teams met was in 1998, in a playoff to determine who would be promoted from Spain's Segunda B. Castilla took the first leg 5-0, before Barcelona took some consolation in a 2-0 return leg victory.

Interestingly, fourteen years ago, two familiar faces were part of Barca's reserve team: those of current Blaugrana legends Carles Puyol and Xavi Hernandez.

So who will star this year in the Mini-Clasico? Let's take a closer look.
