MADRID (Sporting Alert) – Both Kaka and Luka Modric have been named on Real Madrid bench for tonight’s return leg Spanish Super Cups against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Barcelona have a one goal advantage in the contest after beating their arch rivals 3-2 in the first left at Camp Nou last week.
Modric made his long awaited move Tottenham this week and he’s looking forward to start playing and winning trophies with his new teammates.
He will certainly get a chance to make his debut tonight, but it is still left to be seen what will happen to Kaka, who continues to be linked with a move away from the Spanish champions.
As expected Angel Di María comes into the starting line-up after coming off the bench and scoring in the first game.
He will play alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in the attack.
Meanwhile, Andres Iniesta and Xavi were both included in the starting team for Barcelona, which also start Lionel Messi and Pedro in the forward positions.
