Real Madrid vs Barcelona LIVE!

Vinicius Jr scored a hat-trick in the first half as Real Madrid were crowned Spanish Super Cup champions after a 4-1 demolition of bitter rivals Barcelona in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Real dominated every aspect of the game and toyed with last year's Supercopa de Espana champions who could not handle Vinicius and ended the contest with 10 men after defender Ronald Araujo was sent off for a second booking in the 71st minute after two fouls on the Brazilian.

Vinicius scored with two close-range efforts in the seventh and 10th minutes before Robert Lewandowski reduced the deficit in the 33rd with a strike on the rebound. Vinicius extended Real's lead in the 39th minute from the penalty spot, after being fouled by Araujo inside the box.

The goal was a hammer blow for Barcelona who were dominated in the second half of this El Clasico final and Rodrygo struck Real's fourth from a rebound in the 64th minute.

"It makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

"We knew that we had a very good dynamic, we are in good shape physically and mentally, and against a rival like Barcelona going 2-0 up so early is not easy."

Barcelona captain Sergi Roberto reacts

21:02 , Marc Mayo

"I'm angry about that defeat... but we have another new competition on Thursday.

"We have to learn from the defeats and we have other competitions to play for. I trust this team.

"Right now we are angry about the defeat, against Real Madrid it always hurts and I think those two goals in ten minutes were the game.

"We knew that with a goal we were in the game again, but it wasn't to be. I'm sure we'll get out of this. Now it's time to be self-critical and learn from our mistakes."

Ronald Araujo was second to the ball, clipping Vinicius Jr with his attempted clearance to leave the Brazilian in a heap.

Real Madrid 4-1 Barcelona | 66 mins

20:28 , Marc Mayo

The question is now how many can Real Madrid win by?

Barcelona have had nothing in their attacks tonight, only breaching Los Blancos' defence by a supreme Robert Lewandowski volley.

Their gameplans at both ends simply have not worked.

GGGGOOOOOAAALLLL!!! Real Madrid 4-1 Barcelona | Rodrygo, 64'

20:25 , Marc Mayo


That should be that for the Supercopa!

Lovely crossfield ball by Fede Valverde as Real race into space, before Vinicius Jr's cross is poorly cleared by Jules Kounde and Rodrygo rolls it home.

Highlights: Vinicius Jr bags Clasico hat-trick


A calm penalty by the coolest man in the house.

Work to do for Barcelona

19:58 , Marc Mayo

After allowing Real to race into an early lead, Barcelona fought so well to drag themselves back into the tie and then gave it all away again!

Ill-discipline in defence has cost Xavi's side.

Their margin for error in the second half is wafer thin...

Vinicius Jr the difference maker for Madrid

19:55 , Marc Mayo

Real Madrid executed their gameplan perfectly to race into a two-goal lead inside the first ten minutes.

Two breakaway finishes from Vinicius Jr, fed firstly by Jude Bellingham and then by Rodrygo, exposed Barcelona's slack high line.

They let their opponents get back into it however before being gifted a penalty to establish their advantage once more, after Ronald Araujo's needless pull back of Vinicius in the area.

If they get the next goal, they surely win this Supercopa final.

Highlights: Robert Lewandowski's superb hit

Four added minutes.

Real Madrid 3-1 Barcelona | 43 mins

19:44 , Marc Mayo

There's been a red card for a coaching staff member, likely of Barcelona amid that penalty decision.

Jude Bellingham now booked for a strong one on Pedri but replays suggest that was very harsh. He got the ball, not much man.

Sergi Roberto also earned a yellow card at some point of the penalty furore.

Highlights: How Real Madrid took the early lead

19:42 , Marc Mayo

Simple as you like for Vinicius Jr.

Real Madrid 3-1 Barcelona | 41 mins

Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona | 35 mins

19:36 , Marc Mayo

Barcelona have certainly been the better team for the last 20 or so minutes...

GGGOOOOAAALLLL!!! Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona | Lewandowski, 33'

Super work by Dani Carvajal to read Alejandro Balde's jink into the box, before Real have to settle for a hoof upfield by Antonio Rudiger to clear.

Real Madrid 2-0 Barcelona | 27 mins

19:28 , Marc Mayo


Good, strong stop with the feet by Andriy Lunin to deny Ferran Torres from a tight angle.

Delicious ball by Pedri to send him into the box.

Perhaps inevitably the fiery atmosphere in Riyadh has dropped down a touch.

19:13 , Marc Mayo


Barcelona's high defensive line has been ruthlessly punished but now they have no choice but to go for broke.

And a snapshot by Ferran Torres hits the bar, before Robert Lewandowski's rebound is well saved!

GGGOOOOAAALLLLL!!!! Real Madrid 2-0 Barcelona | Vinicius Jr, 10'

19:11 , Marc Mayo


Just like the first, acres of space for Real to run into and Rodrygo pulls a cross back for Vinicius to slide home.

Real Madrid in dreamland!

GGGGOOOOOAAALLLL!! Real Madrid 1-0 Barcelona | Vinicius Jr, 7'

17:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

"After being at the club since I was 14, I'm especially excited about tomorrow because it's my first chance to win a title as captain," he said. "But a Clásico is always a big leveller.

"There is so much rivalry and Madrid are a very strong team, so we'll need to give it 100% in every aspect, and also be very aware of what Madrid are able to do on the counter attack."

"Winning the Super Cup would be a turning point and would give us the boost we need to go on and fight for trophies at the end of the season."

Team news may arrive early, so keep your eyes peeled.

El Clasico score prediction


Barcelona were not in convincing form before the winter break, dropping points in LaLiga to Valencia and Girona before squeezing past Almeria.

Real, meanwhile, have not tasted defeat in any competition since September, and their firepower was on full display against Atletico, even if they were far from secure at the back.

We're going for Real to get revenge for last year's final and lift the trophy.

Real Madrid to win, 3-1.

Early Barcelona team news


Raphinha is absent for Barcelona after he was forced off in the first half against Osasuna.

Pedri made his return off the bench and could start, while Joao Cancelo is pushing to be in contention.

What we reckon for Los Blancos' line-up


Real Madrid predicted XI: Kepa; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy; Tchouameni, Modric, Valverde; Rodrygo, Bellingham, Vinicius Jr

Early Real Madrid team news


Federico Valverde is expected to be fit for Real despite coming off in extra-time with a knock in the semi-final win.

Reports in Spain suggest it is not a serious issue and he should be available to face Barcelona.

Dani Carvajal should also be available despite missing training before the final.

Ancelotti could be tempted to bring in fresh legs after the intensity of 120 minutes against Atletico, with Eduardo Camavinga and Toni Kroos options to come into the side.
