UEFA Super Cup Betting: Barcelona vs SevillaPublished August 11, 2015 by Sol FH
Champions league winners Barcelona face Europa League winners Sevilla live at 18:45 GMT.
The Georgian capital of Tbilisi hosts tonight’s unofficial start to the La Liga 2015/16 regular season featuring Champions League winners Barcelona, facing off against the winners of the Europa League, Sevilla. Spanish soccer fans are eager for the regular season to kick off eleven days from now, but until then this should be enough Spanish soccer action to tide us over.
Barca missing Neymar
Unfortunately for Barcelona, and to their fans that thought they would see the Brazilian soccer star, Neymar has a case of the mumps and is unable to play tonight. Due to a transfer ban, Barcelona will also be without newly acquired Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal, while Jordi Alba is out because of an injury.
Sevilla are in better shape with regards to its injury list, but are still missing Steven Nzonzi, Timothee Kolodziejczak and Adil Rami, whom are doubtful. Sevilla will still be the underdogs to come close to beating Barcelona, especially with the Champions Cup and La Liga winners with so many weapons on its roster.
Tonight’s match will be a repeat of the 2006 Super Cup, which was a completely different story as Barcelona lost 3-0 to Sevilla. This will be the first ever rematch of a final and surely the result will be much different after 90 minutes of play.
