    I think you can:

    Why should I go, if I already know what they are going to say to me?

    Nevertheless, you can also say "when" instead of "if". It might even fit better. ;)

    Well, I was wondering if there was a construction (or something) in English to be used in this special case of Si, which is not exactly a conditional, because everything that follows it is already an actual fact.
    In my example, I'm not asking whether I should go (somewhere) in case I knew what they are going to tell me. I'm just wondering what the point of going is, considering the fact that I already know what they are going to tell me.
