Correra’s goal was his fourth of the season for Atletico

Angel Correa scored late on as Atletico Madrid stunned Barcelona 3-2 in Saudi Arabia to reach the Spanish Super Cup final.

Koke’s clinical strike put Atletico ahead early in the second half.

Lionel Messi equalized with a driven finish and then Antoine Griezmann headed Barcelona into the lead.

Alvaro Morata converted a penalty to make it 2-2 before Correra ran through and grabbed the winner with a powerful strike that was too strong for Neto.

    Victory means Atletico Madrid will face city rivals Real, who beat Valencia 3-1 on Wednesday, in the final on Sunday (18: (GMT).

    The tournament has a new format this season, with the top two from La Liga and the Copa del Rey finalists playing in a four-team competition rather than the two winners playing each other.

    Real, despite finishing third in La Liga, qualified because Barcelona won the league and finished runner-ups in the cup.
