FC Barcelona are not the favourites to win the Spanish Super Cup, according to coach Ronald Koeman.

Barcelona face Real Soceidad in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup in their next match, and Koeman was quizzed if the Blaugrana were the favourites to win the title during the pre-match press conference. Koeman insisted he does not think so and added every team participating in the tournament has a chance as Barca have.

"I don't think so. It doesn't depend on a team's recent form. Real [Sociedad] had a great start to LaLiga Santander. I've seen several of their games and they seem to me like one of the best teams in the division. For me there is no clear cut favourite to win the Supercopa," Koeman said, as per Marca.

"The four teams participating have the mentality of doing their best to win a title. All four of us have a chance, as do we. We want to continue with the image that we've been displaying lately. The team is growing. It is an opportunity to show that we are in a good way," Koeman added.

Meanwhile, Barca are in good form having registered their third win on the bounce for the first time this season when they beat Granada in their recent fixture. Koeman and co will be hoping to maintain the momentum, see the better off Real Sociedad and progress to the finals of the competition.
