Madrid have struggled with defensive injuries for much of the season and that will be the case until the final weeks of the campaign. Thibaut Courtois and David Alaba are out for the entire campaign, while Eder Militao is not expected back until April. They are also without the useful Lucas Vazquez until February.

Barca suffered a fitness blow in the semi-final when Brazilian forward Raphinha injured his hamstring. The Brazilian will be unavailable for the final while there are a number of other doubts for Xavi to monitor. Pedri, Marcos Alonso, Inigo Martinez and Joao Cancelo all faced races to be fit for the game, with only the former managing to make the lineup.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona score prediction

Madrid came out on top in the first Clasico of the season in La Liga, though Barca wasted a number of great chances and really should have won the game.

Barca might have the added firepower of young Brazilian Vitor Roque to call on from the bench if Lewandowski continues to struggle like he has in recent months, but Carlo Ancelotti's side have only lost one game all season and should be able to exploit their great rivals' weaknesses in Saudi Arabia to lift the Supercopa de Espana for the 13th time.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona
