Real Madrid needs to overcome the disappointment of a frustrating 2-2 draw when it plays at Barcelona in the second leg of the Spanish Supercup on Wednesday.

Madrid dominated the first leg on Sunday and created the best scoring opportunities, but the team was eventually undone by the individual talent of the Spanish champions, notably David Villa and Lionel Messi.

Barcelona will welcome a return to the Camp Nou after an uncharacteristic match where it failed to impose itself through its usual passing game.

The Catalans may also be able to count on Cesc Fabregas, who returned to his boyhood club from Arsenal on Monday.
