Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid takes place on Wednesday in Spain's Super Cup 20131, with two of the biggest clubs in the country facing off in an early season clash. The match kicks off at 5 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Barcelona will be heavy favorites for today's game, and last season the Catalan side won both their matches by a combined score of 6-2 against Atletico.
However, Atletico are never an easy team to play and they will be hoping to do better and improve their record against the reigning Spanish champions.
Meanwhile, Barcelona will be looking to go all the way in this year's Supercopa, having lost the cup to arch-rivals Real Madrid a season ago. Real won on away goals and that was a massive disappointment for Barcelona, who will be looking to reclaim the title this year.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has said, according to AFP: "The Super Cup is not more important for us than them. Finals are important for everyone. Their status as favorites makes it more important for them because they have the obligation to win it."
He added, "Barcelona are without doubt the better team. They have (Lionel) Messi, the best player in the world, and they have bought a player that could be the best in the world in Neymar. They have (Andres) Iniesta, Xavi, Pedro and Alexis (Sanchez). They have various players that are important and it is normal that they are favorites."
He concluded, saying, "With the economic power they have, they are able to assemble this team that we can enjoy because watching Barcelona is a pleasure."
