Barcelona claimed a 2-0 victory in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday, courtesy of goals from Luis Suarez and Munir. The victory put them in good stead for the second leg and the Catalan giants will confident of finishing the job off at the Nou Camp.
The Spanish champions are missing a number of key players for this clash, as Brazilian duo Rafinha and Neymar are at the Olympics with their national team, while Andres Iniesta, Marc-Ter Stegen and Jeremy Mathieu are sidelined through injury.
Despite the injury problems the Blaugrana can be backed at odds of 4/11 to win this clash with Marathonbet.
The first leg of this time was the first time that Sevilla had failed to score under new boss Jorge Sampaoli. The Andalusians have an uphill battle to recover this tie following the defeat.
The Europa League winners are without David Soria, Benoit Tremoulinas and Michael Krohn-Dehli all through injury. Ukrainian international winger Yevhen Konoplyanka may come into the line-up for Sampaoli’s team.
Sevilla have a poor record against Barcelona, having lost four of the last five meetings with the men from Catalonia, including the last three meetings.
Sampaoli’s team can be backed at odds of 15/2 with Marathonbet to record a victory in this clash.
This is unlikely to be a surprise, but I am going to tip a Barcelona win at odds of 4/11 at Marathonbet. Luis Enrique’s side look to be easing into the season and I can see them comfortably winning this one.
