Barcelona Beat Sevilla To Win Spanish Super Cup

Barcelona Beat Sevilla To Win Spanish Super Cup

by | 13th August 2018

Barcelona beat Sevilla 2-1 to win the Spanish Super Cup in Tangier, Morocco thanks to a Marc-Andre ter Stegen last-minute penalty save.

 

Pablo Sarabia put Sevilla ahead when the video assistant referee gave a goal which had been ruled out for offside.

 

Barcelona levelled after a Lionel Messi‘s free-kick hit the post and the back of goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik before Gerard Pique turned home the rebound into an empty net and Ousmane Dembele then fired Barca into the lead with a shot from 20 yards in the 79th minute.

 

Sevilla had a late penalty when Ter Stegen fouled Aleix Vidal but he held Wissam Ben Yedder‘s weak spot-kick.

 

Barcelona have taken part in nine of the last 10 Super Cups, but this was the first to take place over just one leg and in a foreign country.
