Some top notch football coming from Tbilisi, Georgia on Tuesday night. Yes, you read that right as it is Barcelona v Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup.
Frankly, with Barcelona running as overwhelming 1/3 favourites at Ladbrokes to win the match (Sevilla 7/1) the match outright isn’t offering very much for punters, especially with the fact that Barcelona are unbeaten in their last eleven played against their fellow Spaniards.
But raising interest is Lionel Messi who seems to score for fun against Sevilla and who is an 11/4 favourite in the first goalscorer market and an 8/13 price to score anytime in the game.
Sevilla boss Unai Emery has coached 19 games against Barcelona so far in his career and has failed to win one of them, and in those 19 games Lionel Messi has bagged 22 goals.
Messi has also scored on each of his last five appearances against Sevilla for a total of eight goals and he bagged a hattrick in the 2010 Spanish Super Cup against them and again in last season’s La Liga clash at the Nou Camp.
