  • Valverde perfila este once para la Supercopa ante el Sevilla

Barca equalised late in the first half when Lionel Messi's free-kick hit the post and the back of goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik, and Pique turned home the rebound into an empty net.

It was Barcelona's 13th Supercup and sixth in the last nine seasons.

Lionel Messi starts for Barcelona for the first time since being named as the club's new captain in their Spanish Super Cup clash with Sevilla.

And that lack of playing time seemed to take its toll on Messi and his team-mates early on, when Pablo Sarabia converted to give Sevilla the lead.

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde also includes Clement Lenglet for his competitive debut against his former club, with the Frenchman lining up alongside Gerard Pique, who announced his retirement from global football this week.

Sevilla were then awarded a penalty in the 90th minute when Ter Stegen committed a foul in the box.

The Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla is a game of particular significance for Leo Messi: if the new Barcelona captain finds himself on the winning side in Tangiers he will become the most successful player in Camp Nou history by lifting a 33 career trophy with the club.

"It has stated that as many non-EU players as desired can be registered, despite the fact that in their last notice for the 18/19 season, only three were due to be permitted, without exception".

The BBC reported Sevilla had threatened to withdraw from the game.

In the end, 21-year-old winger Malcom, signed from Bordeaux in the summer, was left out of the matchday line-up.

Forwards Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have already acquired European Union citizenship while Brazilian Phlippe Coutinho has received a Portuguese citizenship through his wife.

Sevilla qualified for the match as last season's Copa del Rey runners-up, after Barcelona won the league and cup double.
