| The Kumasi-based banker says he does not see Real Madrid beating Barcelona. The 25-year-old believes The Vikings will try to open up since they suffered a defeat in the first leg and that will give the Barca attackers the chance to slip. “It’s a do or die affair for Jose Mourinho and his men,” he said.

|The fresh graduate of the University of Ghana says once there is Messi, there is hope. For him, Barca’s attack is the best in the world and not even the Real defense can afford to contain them. James is of the view that Messi who has already netted five goals in three official matches this season will increase his tally at the Bernabeu.

|The 26-year-old student calls himself ‘Raul Madrid’ to let people know how passionate he is about Los Blancos. But he clearly thinks The Whites will go down 3-1 on Wednesday night. According to him, the Real Madrid defense is dead and the bench is weak. Annor says he is not impressed with Los Merengues strikers because they are not prolific.

| The die-hard Barcelona fan expects a tough game. He believes Real Madrid’s image is being affected with the series of defeats to their arch-rivals and that will drive the Merengues. However, Wahab predicts a 2-1 win for Barcelona.

|The 28-year-old journalist says Real Madrid are going to win this game and will put Barcelona to shame on Wednesday. “It’s going to be difficult though, but I trust [Jose] Mourinho and his charges to do wonders.” This is football and anything can happen, but trust me its Real’s time to redeem their image.
- Kofi Agyepong
| He believes the ‘Special One’ has what it takes to win. “It’s our game and when you watch the first one you’ll see clearly that it was ours to lose. Wednesday will tell and I want to assure Barcelona that football wasn’t made for them.” It will end 2-1 in favour of Real Madrid.

|The Tanzanian with an affection for Ghana said “We’re winning at all cost and as we have the likes of Lionel Messi and Alex Song, trust me it’s all for us. The Super Cup will be heading to our trophy cabinet and we’re going to prove to Real Madrid that football is not for small boys.”
- Angel Navuri
| Well it really difficult to predict the score between this two Spanish giants but I think Real Madrid has got a bad start this season and for that I don't think Barcelona will have it easy going with the match. I think the game will be a tie - 0-0.

|This match is a win for Barcelona and it’s going to be 1-2 for the Catalans as they usually win at the Bernabeu in recent times. I’ll be shocked if they lose and I believe they’ll try and make a lot of amends after watching the first leg. It’s going to be one of the games of the season and it’s coming at the right time to put us all in the mood for quality football this season. I can’t wait to begin the celebrations.
