There are few easy matches against Barcelona, however, Real Madrid have enjoyed two in less than a week as Los Blancos won the tenth Supercopa de Espana in the club’s history.
It has been a five year wait for Real Madrid to lift this trophy since their last triumph which came in 2012 against Barcelona.
The Supercopa is a competition where the Madrid side have often got the better of their fierce rivals with Los Blancos emerging victorious in six of the seven contests against the Blaugrana.
Triumphs came in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2003, 2008 and the aforementioned victory in 2012.
Zinedine Zidane does have a little work to do before his team are the most successful club in Supercopa history with Los Cules still leading the way on 2 triumphs.
Deportivo La Coruna are the nearest team to Real Madrid with their three triumphs whilst Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid are the only other teams with more than one success in the traditional season opener.
