Luis Enrique completed his clean sweep of every trophy on offer in Spanish football by leading Barcelona to a 5-0 aggregate win over Sevilla in the Super Copa.
The Catalans were rarely threatened at Camp Nou, taking a 2-0 lead from Sunday’s game into the second leg. Sevilla started well but Arda Turan gave Barca the lead on the night following good link-up play between Lionel Messi and new summer signing Andre Gomes.
Samuel Umtiti gave away a penalty kick, but Vicente Iborra saw his effort from 12 yards saved by Claudio Bravo, who might have made one of his final appearances for Barca before a move to Manchester City.
Turan added a second minutes after the restart, with Messi scoring a header to give his side a comfortable 3-0 lead on the night. Barcelona will now start their league campaign against Real Betis on Saturday with the season now up and running in Spain.
