Madrid soccer will take center stage Sunday, but the arena won’t be anywhere near Spain.
Real Madrid will play Atletico Madrid at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in the 2019-2020 Spanish Super Cup final.

The winner of Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid will claim the first major trophy of the Spanish soccer season.
The teams last met in the Spanish Super Cup when Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid 2-1 over two legs.
