19:30 Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde insisted his side did not lack cutting edge because of stunning departure of Neymar, saying: 'It's not about accumulating people who score a lot of goals, but creating a consistency in our play so that the players who score the goals are always close to doing so." 

18:30 Ronaldo is confirmed out of tonight's clash after losing his suspension against the five-game ban. 

16:14 Ronaldo scored as a substitute in Madrid's 3-1 win over Barcelona at Camp Nou, but he was sent off after he shoved official Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea. The Spanish football federation hit Ronaldo with a four-match suspension on top of the automatic one-game ban.

15:30 Zinedine Zidane showed his anger over a five-match ban imposed on Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo for pushing the referee in Sunday's Spanish Super Cup first leg.

14:00 Barcelona said captain Iniesta would miss the match after he was not able to train with his team mates on Tuesday ahead of the encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu, where the Catalans will look to overturn a 3-1 deficit.

13:30 Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta will miss their Spanish Super Cup second leg against Real Madrid on Wednesday after suffering a thigh injury.
