Sevilla's Pablo Sarabia scored the opener in the curtain-raiser to the Spanish league season that was played in Tangier, Morocco, this year.

However, Barcelona struck just before half-time after a free-kick by Messi hit the post before Gerard Pique converted the rebound.

Dembele ended up being the match-winner when his thunderbolt late in the second half found the back of the net, and there was even more drama in the dying minutes, when saw Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved a penalty from Wissam Ben Yedder.
