Barcelona will face off against Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup tomorrow. Both teams will be eager to kick start their new season with some early silverware.

Sevilla

Sevilla are in good spirits after their 4 consecutive wins. Sevilla are yet to lose after they lost to Benfica in a friendly fixture before the qualifiers of UEFA Europa League. They have won the next four games including three Europa League qualifiers and a friendly match against Extremadura UD. Benega will be the key player for Sevilla following his performances in the preseason and considering his Europa League qualifiers form. Aleix Vidal will be eager to get his shot on his former teammates following his return to Sevilla earlier this month.

Barcelona

Barcelona didn’t play any preseason games other than their International Champions Cup fixtures. Barcelona endured a very tough campaign as they lost all three of their games. Barcelona submitted 2 goals lead to lose against Spurs and 2 goals lead against Roma before losing 1-0 to AC Milan in their last game of the preseason. With all players joining the team after extended vacations following summer’s World Cup, Barcelona can hit the ground running. The likes of Umtiti, Rakitic, Messi and Suarez all available for selection will certainly aid Barcelona’s cause.

Head to Head

Barcelona have clear edge over Sevilla as they have come out as top dogs in 27 of their last 40 matches against Sevilla. The most recent of the wins coming in the Copa del Rey last season with Barcelona thrashing Sevilla 5 goals to nil with Suarez, Messi, Iniesta and Coutinho all scoring for the Catalonians. Last time Sevilla beat Barcelona was back in October 2015 in the Super Cup tie when they won 5-0 on aggregate. Barcelona have won 4 and drew 1 from last 5 meetings between the two sides.

Prediction

Despite having a poor preseason tournament, Barcelona will be boosted with the return of their star men while Sevilla will be desperate to make amends to their record against the Catalonian giants. Keeping the head to head record and their current form in mind, Barcelona are the firm favorites to win the fixture.

Betting Tips Barcelona to win

2.00 for Barcelona to win the match within 90 minutes and 3.00 for over 3.5 goals scored looks like a stellar bet.
