Osasuna star criticizes authorities after defeat to Real Madrid and Barcelona in Super Cup

Osasuna goalkeeper criticizes Spanish Super Cup for favoring Real Madrid and Barcelona, as Xavi's side prepares to face Real Madrid.

Osasuna goalkeeper Sergio Herrera recently expressed his frustration with the Spanish Super Cup, suggesting that it seems to favor Real Madrid and Barcelona. This sentiment came after Osasuna's 2-0 loss to Xavi's side in the second Super Cup semifinal in Riyadh. During the match, a 59th-minute goal by Robert Lewandowski and a late goal by Lamine Yamal secured the victory for Barcelona.

Herrera and his teammates felt aggrieved by several 50-50 calls that didn't go their way, including a perceived foul by Andreas Christensen on Jose Arnaiz in the lead-up to Lewandowski's goal, which VAR did not overturn. Herrera expressed his dissatisfaction with the Super Cup, stating that it seems tailored for Real Madrid and Barcelona to play, and that the Saudi public's desire to see these two teams results in them being paid more.

Barcelona is now set to face Real Madrid in a rematch of last year's title clash. Despite losing to Real Madrid in La Liga earlier this season, Barcelona manager Xavier Hernandez is confident in his team's ability to beat their El Clasico rivals and retain their Spanish Super Cup title. He emphasized the importance of their methodology, style of play, and the need for their DNA to shine through, expressing their determination to show their best football.

As the reigning La Liga champions, Barcelona currently sits third in the title race, seven points behind Real Madrid and Girona. The team is gearing up to face Real Madrid in what promises to be an intense and competitive match.
