Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde has described the new Spanish Super Cup format as a ‘bit strange’.
The tournament, being held in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, is being held in a four-team semi-final format this time around during the LaLiga winter break.
Previously, the Super Cup used to be held at the start of the season with the winners of LaLiga and the Copa del Rey battling it out for the prize in Spain.
The new format sees the top two teams from both competitions face off in Saudi Arabia in two semi-final before the winners square off in the final.
Valverde’s Barcelona will take on Atletico Madrid in Thursday’s semi-final for a place in the final against Real Madrid who beat Valencia on Wednesday.
