Spanish La Liga

Suarez On Target As Barca Secure First Leg Win

Spanish Super Cup 

Result: Sevilla 0-2 FC Barcelona

Date: 14 August 2016

Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Luis Suarez was among the goals for FC Barcelona, as they secured a 2-0 win over Sevilla in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

Sevilla did not hold back in the opening stages of the first half, although the only chance in the opening 20 minutes fell to Suarez who was denied by a great save by Sergio Rico.

The Catalan giants were dealt a blow after 25 minutes when Jeremy Mathieu picked up a knock and was replaced by new signing, Lucas Digne.

Luis Enrique was forced into another change 10 minutes later when Andres Iniesta had to come off after sustaining a knock earlier in the game. Denis Suarez was brought on as his replacement.

The injuries certainly disrupted the flow of the Catalan giants, as they struggled to carve out another opening for the rest of the half.

Barcelona eventually broke the deadlock in the 54th minute, as Arda Turan cushioned the ball for Suarez, who slotted into the bottom corner from 12-yards out.

The home side pushed for an equaliser as the second half went on, but they struggled to bypass a soled Barcelona defence led by Javier Mascherano and Gerard Pique.

Barcelona eventually doubled their lead in the 80th minute as Lionel Messi played in Munir El Haddadi, who calmly slotted past the on-rushing Rico.

The score remained 2-0 to the La Liga champions, who now take a healthy lead into the second leg at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.
