The first installment of this scintillating matcup during the 2011-12 Spanish campaign comes in today’s SuperCopa matchup at the Bernabeu in Madrid.
Barcelona enter the game as the defending champions of both their domestic league as well as all of Europe. Led by Lionel Messi, whom no one even seems to contest is the best footballer in the world, and the Argentine’s magic midfield mates Iniesta and Xavi, Barca represent the zenith of world football at the moment.
Real Madrid, mind you, are not very far behind, led by Cristiano Ronaldo. But the gap in fluency and insight seems to be consistently just too far to close. The task of unseating the Catalans atop the league table may be beginning to feel like a Sisyphean task. Madrid keeps adding talent hand over fist, running up impressive score lines against every other side in Spain, yet cannot seem to get the boulder to the tippy-top of the mountain.
This evening in Spain, Jose Mourinho and los Blancos will put their shoulders into that boulder once more.
