Barcelona v Real Madrid
Spanish Supercopa second leg (agg 2-2)
Wednesday, August 17th 2011, 22:00 BST kick-off

Barcelona play host to Real Madrid tonight in the second leg of their Supercopa tie, with the scores 2-2 following last Sunday's first leg.

Barcelona have no fresh injuries worries following the draw at the Bernabeu last weekend.

Sergio Busquets (ankle) returned to training on Tuesday and could feature, while defender Gerard Pique (hamstring) is likely to start.

Club captain Carles Puyol (knee) may not be fit enough to be involved, but Barca are hopeful that he will be fit in time for the start of the new La Liga season.

Puyol's absence could mean that Javier Mascherano is handed a start in central defence.

New signing Cesc Fabregas, who completed his move from Arsenal on Monday, trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Tuesday and is set to play some part in the game, although whether he will start remains to be seen.

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho could field the same starting line-up as he did on Sunday.

Fabio Coentrao could get the nod ahead of Angel di Maria.
