Real Madrid and Barcelona have been left alone in the Super League project, which was born on Sunday and by Wednesday morning had lost nearly all its founders.

The six English clubs were the first to go --- Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham -- followed by Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid. AC Milan and Juventus later followed suit, although were less explicit with their withdrawal. They instead said that it had become clear the competition in its proposed format would not work.

The European Super League had got off to a bad start when last season's Champions League finalists Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain stood against it.

At the moment, just Real Madrid maintain their absolute bet on the project, with president Florentino Perez the man who was set to be the chairman of the league.

As for Barça, they have still not said anything officially. It's known the Joan Laporta has explained the project and the club's position to coach Ronald Koeman and the first team captains. Everyone agreed that entering any new competition would have to be approved by the voting membets.

And so there are two teams left, Barça and Madrid...
