Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: 6 Bold Predictions for Spanish Super Cup 2nd Leg

Act II of this Spanish Super Cup is about to begin.

FC Barcelona look to win their first title of the 2012-13 season as they head to the Santiago Bernabeu and take on Real Madrid.

Tito Vilanova's men come into this game off a comeback victory against Osasuna on Sunday. Lionel Messi did not have the best game in Pamplona, but Leo was able to bring his team back with two goals within a four minute span to get the three points.

Real Madrid come into the second leg of this Supercopa as a team looking to get it together. After its 2-3 loss in the first leg, Jose Mourinho's team went to Getafe and were unable to put them away. Getafe stunned Real Madrid with a 2-1 victory, leaving Los Blancos with just one point after two rounds in La Liga.

Barcelona are now up "una manito" (five) points up on Real in La Liga.

Cristiano Ronaldo will look to lead his team to its first win of the 2012-13 competitive season as it hosts Messi and Barcelona on Wednesday.

A 1-0 or greater win and Real Madrid will hoist the trophy in front of their fans.

A Barcelona win or tie of any kind and Barcelona gets to celebrate in the Bernabeu.

Instead of predicting some safe score of 2-2, I decided to go out and give six bold predictions for this game. You may—and probably won't—agree with what I say, but hey, it's time to mix things up a bit.

Let's go!
