All Out for Number 13

Madrid, who have already lifted the European Super Cup this season, have won the Spanish Super Cup 12 times. The first was in 1988 after beating Barcelona. The following year they won it automatically by winning the double, while in the 1990, 1993 and 1997 editions they overcame the Azulgranas again. Zaragoza (2001), Mallorca (2003) and Valencia (2008) were the title rivals at the beginning of this century, before two more titles (2012 and 2017) were won over Barcelona. In the last Spanish Super Cups, played in the current final four format, they beat Atlético de Madrid (2020) and Athletic (2022).
