If Real Madrid defeats rivals Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup final on Sunday, they will collect a sizable bonus.

Real Madrid and Barcelona have qualified for the final, which will be held in Saudi Arabia, with victories against Atletico Madrid and Osasuna, respectively.

Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid 5-3 in an exciting encounter in which star midfielder Toni Kroos was booed by the entire stadium with every touch of the ball.

Meanwhile, Barcelona defeated Osasuna 2-0 thanks to goals in the second half from Robert Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team will receive a sizable bonus from Florentino Perez if they can defeat Xavi’s club in the championship game.

Football Espana reports that Perez has reached an agreement with the team’s top players to give each a massive €150k (£129k) bonus if they win, for a total of €4 million (£3 million).

The article states that the coaching staff and every member of the squad will have access to the money.

Jude Bellingham gave a magnificent performance, scoring an incredible brace in a 2-1 victory at Camp Nou last October, and Los Blancos already have a victory over the Catalan giants this season.

Ahead of the match on Sunday, Xavi praised Real Madrid as a “super-team.”

He said: “Real Madrid are better than last year. They’re a super-team, but we’ll try to dominate them and play them on a one-to-one basis. We won’t change much, and we’re very motivated.

“(I am confident of winning) because of our way of playing, our methodology, and our way of competing against Real Madrid. We did it here last year and we did it in the Clasico earlier this season until the 60th minute.

“That’s where the game has to go, to dominate it and to take more away from them. Let our DNA be seen more than ever. We’re extra motivated and it’s time to show our good game.”
