MADRID (Sporting Alert) — New signing Luka Modric and Brazilian playmaker Kaka have been included in Real Madrid squad for tonight’s Spanish Super Cups against Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Barcelona lead the two way tie after winning the opening leg 3-2 last week, with Lionel Messi, as expected impressing for the hosts.
On Wednesday night Modric could make his debut, following his transfer move from Barclays Premier League side Tottenham this week, while Kaka, who has been overlooked in the last couple of games was amongst the midfielders who were called up by manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho will also be hoping for a better performance from his players, after they let a lead slipped and were beaten at the Camp Nou.
It is expected that Angel Di Maria, who scored off the bench in the last game will start this time round.
