- Messi is the only player to score in four consecutive Spanish Super Cups (Athletic Club, Sevilla, and twice against Real Madrid)

- Any result from the past seven visits of the Azulgranas, who won 3-2 in the away leg, to the Santiago Bernabéu would be enough to claim the title

- Messi and Alves are the only players to feature in FC Barcelona’s last seven matches against Madrid at the Bernabéu

- Xavi could increase his lead as the Barça player with the most matches played against Real Madrid (34) and Carles Puyol, if he plays, would surpass Segarra’s mark and become the Barça player with the second most matches against Los Blancos (32).

- In the event of an Azulgrana victory, Barça would surpass Real Madrid in victories between the two sides. Currently the teams are level with 87 victories apiece after FC Barcelona’s win last week at the Camp Nou.

- Mascherano will reach 100 official matches for Barça if plays tonight at the Bernabéu.

- Xavi Hernández is the player with the most titles (24) out of any player in both the FC Barcelona and Real Madrid squads. He’s followed by Iniesta (22), Valdés (21) and Puyol (21). Casillas, with 16 titles, is the most decorated Real Madrid player.

- Barça are the team with the most Spanish Super Cups (10), ahead of Real Madrid (8).

- Barça would become the first team in Spanish football history to claim four consecutive Spanish Super Cup titles if they win tonight.

- Ever since Tito Vilanova has been on the Barça bench, either as a head manager or assistant manager to Pep Guardiola, the team have never lost a two-match playoff against Real Madrid (Champions League, Super Cup or Copa del Rey).

- Messi has the chance to become FC Barcelona’s all-time highest scorer against Real Madrid if he scores one goal. The Argentine is currently level on goals with César (14). Di Stéfano, with 18 goals, holds the all-time goalscoring record in Clásicos.
