Barcelona Wins the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla

Barcelona fight back against Sevilla 2-1 to win their 13th  Spanish supercup on sunday with french world cup winner Ousmane dembele assisting Messi to get a winning start as Captain.

But, Sevilla loss a golden opportunity to move the match into extra time, when Wissam Ben Yedder missed a last-minute penalty. Pablo Sarabia gave Sevilla the lead after just nine minutes on a counter-attack.

But Pique  levelled the scores three minutes before the interval for Barcelona after he was quick to respond to a loose ball following a Messi free-kick.
That set the stage for French star Dembele to take the headlines with a 78th minute screamer from 25 yards and again Messi played a crucial role with the key pass.

There was still time for late drama when Barceloan goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen brought down Aleix Vidal in the area as the Sevilla youngster closed in on an equaliser. But Ben Yedder hit a weak penalty which was easily saved by Ter Stegen.
