Barcelona got into the final of the Spanish Super Cup this Wednesday by beating Real Sociedad on penalties 3-2 (1-1 at the end of the game and extra time) in the first semifinal of the trophy in Córdoba.

Goalkeeper Marc André Ter Stegen was the hero of the match by stopping two of the five penalties for Real, after Frenkie de Jong opened the header for Barcelona (39) and Mikel Oyarzabal equalized a penalty (51) after a hand of the Dutch himself in his area.

The Barça team will now wait for their rival, who will come out of the semifinal that will be played on Thursday by Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid, current Super Cup champions.

Barça managed to win the match despite not being able to count on their captain Lionel Messi, who 'suffered' the match from the stands due to some discomfort.

The alarms had gone off in the morning when he did not participate in a final training session and were confirmed when he did not dress short, although the Argentine star could try to be in the final on Sunday.
