King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh will play host to the second Spanish Super Cup semifinal on Thursday evening as Real Betis and Barcelona are set to lock horns.

Los Beticos won their third Copa del Rey title last year by beating Valencia in the final. They have thus earned their maiden Super Cup appearance since 2005 when they also faced Barcelona.

Back then, the Super Cup was played over two legs (home and away) as Blaugrana claimed the trophy 4-2 on aggregate thanks to a 0-3 victory in the first leg at Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Barcelona are the favorites going into this game, too. They are once again alone at the top of La Liga standings thanks to a big 0-1 victory over Atletico Madrid on Sunday night.

Ousmane Dembele made the difference by netting the only goal of the game and helping the Catalans pick up a huge three-pointer in the capital despite missing their top scorer Robert Lewandowski through suspension.

Lewa will be back for this Super Cup clash and he will no doubts be very motivated to quickly return to the scoresheet on the occasion.

As for Betis, they returned to winning ways on Sunday afternoon, surviving a tough Rayo Vallecano test with a 1-2 victory at Estadio de Vallecas.
