Spain Super Cup: Sevilla - Barcelona

We discussed Sevilla in midweek ahead of their UEFA Super Cup match up with Real Madrid, where they led 2-1, but lost 3-2 in extra time. That came at a cost and the entire three man backline of Timothee Kolodziejczak ,Daniel Carrico and Nicolas Pareja miss out through a combination of injury and suspension. There was already a lot of space in behind that trio at times in midweek and Real frequently broke the offside trap and Sevilla will be pushing forward a lot tonight in the first real home debut for the new coach. Barce have been very hit and miss in pre season and are only slowly re-introducing their star names into the squad after a busy summer, but Messi and Suarez definitely play tonight and the one constant in pre season has been goals and their four high profile warm up games have all produced at least four and Leicester City, Liverpool and Sampdoria all scored two or more against the Catalan giants. The 2.80-3.0 for Sevilla to score two or more goals (over 1.5) feels big and is very tempting, but I will opt for the easier to back ...........

Sevilla: Sergio Rico, José Antonio, Mariano, Mercado, Rami, Diego González, Escudero, Kranevitter, Nzonzi, Iborra, Sarabia, Kiyotake, Konoplyanka, Vitolo, Ganso, Correa, Franco Vázquez, Ben Yedder , Vietto.

Barcelona: Bravo, Masip, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Denis, Arda, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Mascherano, Munir, Digne, Sergi Roberto, André Gomes, Aleix Vidal, Umtiti , Mathieu.
