Barça – Sevilla data
FC Barcelona won the Spanish Super Cup for the ninth time in the club’s history on Saturday evening and a raft of new stats and records came out of the 4-0 triumph.

appearances with only Carles Puyol remaining on the bench.

effort in the 2-2 draw against Valencia two seasons ago.
