Barcelona’s newly installed captain Lionel Messi will lead his team against Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup

Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, who are from South American countries, have European Union citizenship.

Pablo Sarabia followed his three goals in the Europa League preliminary stages with a ninth-minute opener that was cancelled out by Gerard Pique three minutes from half-time.

Lionel Messi holds off Clement Lenglet of Sevilla, who joined Barcelona this summer.

Barcelona came close to an equaliser in the 16th minute when a quick corner released Lionel Messi inside the box, but Sevilla's new goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik made a super save, before keeping out a Jordi Alba strike minutes later.

Suarez had a golden chance to level the scores late in the first period when he found space inside the box, but the Uruguay global missed the far post as Sevilla kept their one-goal lead in tact. The 21-year-old France winger stunned Sevilla's defence with a right-footed shot that hit the underside of the crossbar in the 78th minute. Barcelona won both competitions last season so have been pitted against last season's cup runners-up this weekend.

Sevilla almost restored their lead just after the hour mark but Franco Vazquez's glancing header shaved the top of the crossbar. But his first season at Camp Nou was limited by injuries as Dembele struggled to replace the hole left by Neymar after he went to Paris Saint-Germain.

That haul includes four Champions League wins, nine La Liga crowns and six Copas del Rey, as well as a record five Ballons d'Or.

"We have placed lots of hope (in Dembele)", Valverde said.

Spanish club Sevilla have stated that they could withdraw from tonight's Spanish Cup final against Barcelona over an interpretation of the rules surrounding the competition.

However, this is the first time it will played outside Spain, with the encounter billed to take place in Tangier, Morocco.
