After a surprise result in the first leg, Barcelona have it all to on Monday when they play Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup second leg at the Camp Nou.

The San Mames crowd were treated to a truly outstanding performance from their home team as Athletic Bilbao came away with a 4-0 victory in the first leg on Friday.

Mikel San Jose opened the scoring in spectacular style, finding the back of the net from near the halfway line, before Aritz Aduriz got in on the act in the second half, scoring a hat-trick.

While it is still just a glorified preseason game, with the real business of the La Liga starting this weekend, Barcelona know the importance of producing a stirring comeback at the Nou Camp in this Super Copa de Espana.

"We know it's a challenge, but I think we've a team who can do it," Barcelona manager Luis Enrique said.

"If we get things right, I am sure we can turn things around. Everyone knows Barcelona is capable of anything.

If there is any team capable of overcoming the 4-0 deficit, it certainly are Barcelona, who beat Sevilla 5-4 in the UEFA Super Cup a few days ago. Scoring five goals against four in one match, though, is completely different from having to net five unanswered ones, which is what Barca need to do to win this Spanish Super Cup 2015 title.

With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the lineup, there won't be too many of them betting against Barcelona, who will again be without Neymar and Jordi Alba, to do just that.

"The team has to believe we can do it," Javier Mascherano said. "It will be difficult but it is an important challenge.

"I have seen the game again and it wasn't normal that they created so many chances against us. That's why I said that we did not play well. We were punished for the odd mistake. Now we have to think about how we can turn things around.

"The feeling we can turn it around comes from the whole squad. We really think we have a chance."

Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde admitted this trophy means a lot more for them than to Barcelona, which is why they need to put in another terrific performance.

"For Barca, it's one more, of a possible sextuple," Athletic Bilbao Ernesto Valverde said.

"It's not like winning the Champions League or the league -- but it means everything to us because it has been such a long time since we won a trophy.

"We should have their goal in our sights during the whole game.

"We won't be going into the game looking at the clock and counting the seconds because that would be a big mistake.
