On January 13, ELEVEN starts broadcasting the Trophée des Champions and the Supercopa de España.
Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille will play the Trophée des Champions on January 13, at 8 pm. At the same time, the Spanish Super Cup kicks off, with the first semi-final where Real Sociedad will host the Barcelona team.
In the city of light, the Trophée des Champions, or French Super Cup, will take place on the 13th of January, Wednesday. The King Sport competition, which normally opposes the winner of the Ligue 1 to the French Cup, takes place at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens), at 8 pm, broadcasting on ELEVEN 2.
Paris Saint-Germain was the big winner of the two competitions and for that reason it enters the field with the vice-champion of Ligue 1 Uber Eats, Olympique de Marseille by André Villas-Boas.
The club of the French capital is, in addition to the highest number of victories per club (nine) and consecutive victories (seven), the team that most qualified to compete in the Trophée des Champions (thirteen). In turn, the Marseille club has received this title three times, the last time in 2011.
The last Le Classique between PSG and Marseille was in September last year, at the Parc des Princes in Paris, in a game with five expulsions in which Marseille de Villas-Boas won, with 1 goal by Florian Thauvin. This game will only be broadcast on ELEVEN 2.
In the sister country, the Supercopa de España, a competition that brings together the top finishers of the last edition of LaLiga Santander and the finalists of the Copa del Rey is also scheduled for January 13, at 8 pm, with the first semifinal that opposes Real Sociedad to Barcelona, at the Nuevo Arcángel Stadium (Córdoba), at 8:00 pm. The kick-off of the Super Cup is broadcast ONLY at ELEVEN.
The second semifinal takes place a day later with a game between last year’s champion Real Madrid and Athletic Club, at La Rosaleda Stadium (Malaga), at 8 pm.
The winners of both semifinals will be the finalists of the big decision, on January 17, also scheduled for the region of Andalusia, at the Estadio de La Cartuja, in Seville.
This is the second year in which the Spanish Super Cup is played with a new format that puts four teams face to face. And contrary to what had been decided by the Royal Spanish Football Federation in 2019, this year’s competition will not take place outside the country, due to restrictions due to COVID-19, but the transmission remains guaranteed on ELEVEN’s channel 1.
Last year, the Spanish Super Cup final was played at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, between Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid, with Real winning the Madrid derby 4-1 on penalties after the draw to zero goals in extra time.
