Barça aiming to be Super Cup kings

David Puig

FC Barcelona have the chance to move ahead of Real Madrid in the number of Super Cup triumphs both clubs have by beating Sevilla in this year’s two-legged tie.

The Blaugrana and Los Merengues have both won the cup on eight occasions each since it was inaugurated in 1982, but now an outright leader could be proclaimed. Barça’s rise has been helped by four wins in the last decade as Frank Rijkaard and Pep Guardiola steered the club to glory.

Double winners

In 1998 the Catalan outfit competed for the Super Cup as domestic double winners, but lost to Real Mallorca. Those two games, which the Balearic outfit won 3.1 on aggregate, saw a young Xavi Hernández make his debut for the Barça first-team and score one of the goals.

A derby and three clásicos

FC Barcelona’s most common foe in the pre-season tie have been Atlético de Madrid with the sides meeting four times. Barça have won three of those and Atleti one with the last meeting coming in 1996 when the Camp Nou club won 6-4 on aggregate as Ronaldo made his debut.
