Barca fight back to win Spanish Super Cup

Sevilla threaten to boycott Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona

It was Sevilla who took the lead after just eight minutes as Lucas Muriel set up Pablo Sarabia, who sent a fine curling effort past Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

As Andres Iniesta's successor as Blaugrana captain, it fell on Messi to lift the Supercopa trophy, a landmark achievement for the wonderful Argentine.

Suarez had a golden chance to level the scores late in the first period when he found space inside the box, but the Uruguay global missed the far post as Sevilla kept their one-goal lead in tact.

But no matter if the clouds or smoke clear, "you still need to get away from the light pollution of cities", Meteorologist M.J. Whilst meteors can be seen on any night, at certain times of the year their numbers drastically increase.


Barca equalised late in the first half when Lionel Messi's free-kick hit the post and the back of goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik, and Pique turned home the rebound into an empty net.

Franco Vazquez then headed an Ever Banega corner onto the crossbar moments later as Sevilla came within inches of taking the lead in Morocco once again.

Paris Saint-Germain's "repeated" interest in Ousmane Dembele means Barcelona could consider selling the French winger before the end of August.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal debuted for Barcelona as a late substitute.

The 31-year-old has won four Champions League titles, nine Ligas, three Club World Cups, six Copas del Rey, three European Super Cups and seven Spanish Super Cups during his 14-season Barça career, serving under Franck Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique before current manager Ernesto Valverde assumed the reins at Camp Nou last summer.

Spanish club Sevilla have stated that they could withdraw from tonight's Spanish Cup final against Barcelona over an interpretation of the rules surrounding the competition.

Sarri not aiming to repeat Napoli formula at Chelsea
Courtois previously spent three seasons in Madrid on loan at Atletico, with a return to the Spanish capital proving to be an emotional move for all concerned.


Played in Tangier, Morocco, this was the first Spanish Super Cup held outside Spain and the first time it was played as a single match, instead of a two-leg series. Sevilla faces Zalgiris on Thursday after winning their first match 1-0.
