The 33-year-old، who played 60 minutes in Barcelona's 5-0 win over Chapecoense on Monday، was troubled by numerous knee، calf and abductor injuries last season.

Barca outscored Real Madrid last season with their ferocious attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar but still surrendered the title to Zinedine Zidane's side.

Let us know via Twitter and Facebook.

Asensio joined Madrid from Mallorca for just £3m in 2014 and he's developed in to one of the hottest properties in Spanish football over the past three years.

Barcelona will reportedly turn their attention to rivals Real Madrid and look to trigger Marco Asensio's release clause as part of a shock twist in their efforts to replace Neymar.

On the tight match at the Philip II Arena in Skopje, he added: "Madrid is a very powerful team and we are happy".

"Yes, I am happy, but it does not mean anything", he told a pre-match news conference. We have worked well and then the goals are always the same - we want to win every game and every possible title.

Zidane said striker Cristiano Ronaldo is fit to play on Sunday at the Camp Nou, despite having only had a short summer break after playing for Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

"We're all fit, healthy, physically we're in good condition". The opposite. They're a club in the process of changing but Barcelona is Barcelona.

Zidane admitted "there aren't many players" with Neymar's individual qualities, but claimed his absence would not give Madrid the upper hand over the two legs in four days with the second leg of the Super cup to come at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Barca have added more pace to their side with the return of winger Gerard Deulofeu after stints in England and Italy although the Spaniard can not be expected to be a replacement for Neymar.

"If we think it will be easier [to face Barcelona without Neymar], we are mistaken".
