Sevilla vs Barcelona : How Lionel Messi got a winning start

Sevilla threaten action over Supercopa selection rules

Sevilla threaten action over Supercopa selection rules

In a statement released on Twitter, Sevilla made clear their objections to the decision: "Sevilla FC is surprised by the RFEF's statement 24 hours before the Super Cup".

Ousmane Dembele scored the winning goal, as Barcelona started their 2018/2019 season with victory in the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday.

That was after Luis Muriel had powered his way through the Barca defence.

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

Gerard Pique equalized three minutes before halftime when he finished off a free kick by Messi that hit the post and ricocheted off the back of goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik - and again off the upright - before falling to the Barcelona defender.

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) said on Saturday that there would be no restrictions on players from outside the European Union for the Supercup, despite only three being allowed in squads for league matches.

On Saturday, the Spanish football federation clarified that, unlike in La Liga, there were no restrictions on non-EU players for the Spanish Super Cup because the game was considered "not professional".

Shortly after that, investigators believe he moved to the Sacramento area, beginning a new crime wave as the East Area Rapist. Ward said "good old-fashioned, dedicated police work" played a bigger role than science and DNA in capturing DeAngelo.

"It was a really hard game because we conceded very early and we had to fight back".

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said that he hoped that Dembele's goal is a sign of better things to come this season.

"We grew as the game went on". It was an exciting game and they also had their chances.

But Ben Yedder hit a weak penalty in the Sevilla vs Barcelona gamenwhich was easily saved by Ter Stegen.

"It hurts a lot to lose a trophy like this but when your team competes until the end and shows spirit like they did tonight you can't ask for much more".

Lionel Messi has been named in the Barcelona starting lineup for their Spanish Super Cup clash with Sevilla this evening - the first match since the Argentine was named the club's new captain.
