A good omen for Real Madrid.. Determining the referee for the Super Clasico final

Marca newspaper reported that referee Juan Martinez Muñeira is the one who will officiate the match between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup final.

Perhaps this choice represents a good omen for the Royal Club, given the history of governance in leading the Clásico before.

Muñeira managed El Clásico 3 times, during which Real Madrid succeeded in achieving victory twice, while Barcelona won the other time.

The first Clásico managed by Muñeira was in the 2021-2022 season, when Real Madrid won 3-1 in the heart of the Camp Nou stadium.

The second El Clásico was in the following season at the Santiago Bernabéu, when Barcelona won with a huge score, 4-0, in the Merengue stronghold.

The last Clásico officiated by the 41-year-old referee was in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final last season, when Real Madrid won 4-0 at Camp Nou.

This season, Muñeira managed a match for Real Madrid and another for Barcelona, where Carlo Ancelotti’s squad tied 0-0 with Rayo Vallecano, while Xavi Hernandez’s squad won 1-0 against Athletic Bilbao.

Muñeira has an average career in the world of refereeing, and has not played many major confrontations, and his participation in the 2018 Youth Euro final remains his greatest achievement outside Spanish territory.
