FC Barcelona 2:1 Sevilla, SuperCopa de Espãna: Match Review

In a thrilling match which ended 2:1, FC Barcelona defeated Sevilla and lifted the Supercopa de Espãna in Ibn Batuta Stadium here in Morocco.

Sevilla opened the Scoresheet with Sarabia making no mistake in scoring a clinical finish. Barcelona played well until then but look a bit shaky in between in converting the chances.

Blaugrana equalised with Pique scoring the deflection from Messi's freekick with HalfTime scoreline as 1:1.

Barca played well in the second half with Ivan Rakitic giving the shape to the midfield. They surely missed Andres Iniesta who was not there in the team for the first time in 16 years.

Ousmane Dembele played a brilliant role and he scored a stunner from 30 yards to help Barcelona win the cup. Messi looked calm and composed as he always does but Luis Suarez looked a bit shaky and bottled a couple of open chances like he did in the previous season.

Arthur debuted against Sevilla and played brilliantly giving composure to Barca Midfield which is absent after the departure of Xavi. 

Lenglet and Vidal also debuted for the club and were pretty much fine in shape.

Barca will play the Joan Gamper game on Wednesday against Boca Juniors.
