Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will go head-to-head on Sunday evening in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, at the King Abdullah Sports City stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Real eased past Valencia with a 3-1 win in their semi-final, whilst Atletico had to come from behind to beat a full-strength Barcelona 3-2 on Thursday, with in-form man Angel Correa bagging the winner with only five minutes left.
The most bitter and eternal rivals on the pitch, Sunday's encounter is sure to provide another feisty and high-quality affair.
Ahead of their much-anticipated clash however, we've looked at the two sides in a slightly different manner, comparing the wages of each of their starting eleven - and seeing just how much of a difference there is between the two sides.

Real Madrid Starting Total - £3,505,000-a-week
In a surprise to no-one, Real Madrid's team is full of some of the highest earners in all of world football, with the Los Blancos possessing the highest annual wage bill of any club in Europe.
Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale's £550,000, and £500,000-a-week deals see them both on some of the largest contracts in professional sports history, whilst £360,000-a-week man Luka Jovic can only find a place on their bench.
There are some surprises, however, with key-man Casemiro earning a (comparatively!) pitiful £45,000-a-week, whilst fellow midfielders Isco and Asensio earn almost four and five times that amount respectively.

Thomas Lemar - £113,000
Marcos Llorente - £20,000
Atletico Madrid Starting Total - £1,670,000-a-week
Perhaps not shockingly again, Atletico's total is dwarfed by their more famous neighbours, but is still high enough to see them possess the eleventh highest total in Europe.
Goalkeeping star Jan Oblak is one of the only players to earn higher than his Real counterpart, although Koke (£280,000-a-week), Saul Niguez (£208,000-a-week) and summer signing Joao Felix (£253,000-a-week) do more than hold their own.
There may be no place in the team in recent weeks for Diego Costa, but the former Chelsea man still rakes in £280,000-a-week.
Maybe the biggest shock of all however is found at the bottom of their rankings - Marcos Llorente, signed from Real Madrid in the summer for £35 million, finds himself on just £20,000-a-a week.
Whilst a pittance compared to some of his teammates, both old and new, we're fairly sure Llorente should still be able to make ends meet.News Now - Sport News
