The Supercopa de Espana, aka the Spanish Super Cup, will take place later today.

The Spanish Super Cup pits the winners of La Liga against the winners of the Copa del Rey. This year's edition of the Super Cup will see Atletico Madrid do battle against Real Madrid in a rematch of last year's Champions League final, which was eventually won by Real Madrid.

Real Madrid has won the Spanish Super Cup nine times while Atletico Madrid has won once (1985). Real Madrid is currently chasing Barcelona for most all-time wins in the Spanish Super Cup, as Barcelona has won the competition a total of 11 times.

The Spanish Super Cup is the final action to take place before the start of La Liga this weekend, so you can safely assume that both teams will be fielding their starting line-ups or close to it.
