 Barça clashes with Real Madrid at Camp Nou stadium today Thursday  in the first "El Clasico" in the first game of the two match Supercopa de España 2012. The second game will be played next Wednesday, August 29. 

 The 2012 Super Cup is a repeat performance of last years Super Cup between Real Madrid and Barça, which FC Barcelona won. The 2011 was also the year that FCB won the Supercup title for the first time against Real Madrid, so Barça will be looking for repeat performance. The difference this year is that the two teams switched qualifying titles this time, because Real won the league and Barça won the Copa del Rey to qualify for the Spanish Super Cup. Barça welcomes new defender Alex Song to team tonight when he plays his first game for FCB.

The Spanish Supercup is in August every year and decides who are the supercampeones de España.  When Barca plays in the SuperCup, it's a great opportunity to see all the new signings of FC Barcelona in action. 

The Spanish Supercup is a two-game encounter between the winners of the previous seasons Spanish La Liga (Real Madrid in 2011/12) and the Copa del Rey, (FCB in 2012). Barca have previously won the Supercopa 10 times (which is the record) and Real Madrid have claimed the title 8 times before.
