Barcelona has a chance to add two trophies to their massive museum in one week when the take on Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Friday. Barcelona captured the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday, fending off Sevilla 5-4 in extra time.
Bilbao haven’t won a trophy of any kind since winning the Spanish Super Cup in 1984/1985. The Spanish Super Cup is contested between the winners of La Liga and the Copa del Rey from the previous season. Since Barcelona won both, the other spot in the competition goes to Bilbao, who fell to Barcelona 3-1 in the Copa del Rey Final.
Barcelona took both meetings in La Liga last year by a combined score of 7-2.
The match kicks off at 2:45 p.m. EST/7:45 p.m. GMT and can be seen on ESPN News/ESPN Deportes (US), Sky Sports 5 (UK), and TV3 (Spain). Here’s how to watch the match online and on mobile:
