Barcelona's Messi struggling with injury ahead of Supercopa semifinal

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman insists there's no favourites facing Real Sociedad in the semifinals of the Supercopa de Espana.

Although the game was due to be played in Saudi Arabia, it will now be played in the Archangel Stadium in Cordoba, with the victor to meet either Athletic Club Bilbao or Real Madrid at the Estadio de la Cartuja in Seville on Sunday.

Those two are likely to start on Wednesday, along with Ousmane Dembele, who has also been producing his best form since joining Barca in the last few games.

Barcelona played superbly in the first half while La Real ended the game strongly and both teams had golden chances to score more goals than they managed in the end.

Gerard Pique, Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto and Philippe Coutinho are all injured for Barca, while Ronald Araujo is a major doubt.

Koeman has included France global Lenglet who returns from suspension while Ronald Araujo makes the list despite an injury in the 4-0 win at Granada.

Real Sociedad travel to Cordoba in arguably their worst moment of the campaign and with just one win in their last 11 games.

These two sides played out an entertaining La Liga clash at the Camp Nou a month ago with the hosts triumphing 2-1 and another win for Barca can be backed at 4/6 (1.66) with bet365.
