FC Barcelona are 11 times champion of Supercopa de Espana and they lost final 8 times. Last time Barcelona won Spanish Super Cup in 2013 against Atletico Madrid. On the other hand Athletic Club won this championship only one time in 1984. So it will be interesting to see which team will win Supercopa de Espana.
