Just like the Community Shield in England, the Supercopa de Espana (Spanish Super Cup) signals the beginning of the new La Liga season.
With the 2018/2019 La Liga season set to resume next week, league and Copa del Rey winners, Barcelona, face off against the cup runners-up, Sevilla on Sunday.
For the first time ever, this year’s edition of the competition will be played on non-Spanish soil. That being said, this is one other game you can make money from this weekend if you know where to look. Some of the betting options you should consider if you’re to make money from this game are:
Barcelona to win
The Catalan giants have been priced at 1.55 odds to win the tie. And there are many reasons why you should place this bet now, including,
- Barcelona has featured in eight of the last nine editions of the Super Cup, lifting it five times.
- In five of those Barcelona Super Cup wins, Sevilla were victims on two occasions.
- No Sevilla side has ever beaten Barcelona in the last nine meetings between both clubs.
- Sevilla’s 91 defeats to date against Barcelona is the most times any clubs has inflicted defeat on the Seville side.

Barcelona to score Over 1,5 Goals
You have to go as far back as 2015 for a Sevilla win over Barcelona. In the last two meetings between both sides in the competition, Sevilla conceded 10 Barcelona goals. Put into perspective, Barcelona’s average number of goals scored against Pablo Machin’s men in the Super Cup stands at five per game.
Taking into account just La Liga games between both sides, Barcelona scored at least two goals against Sevilla in each of their last 13 encounters.
The last time Barcelona failed to score over 1,5 goals against was in 2015, in the same game Sevilla won 2-1.

A loss for whichever team in this Super Cup final will not be devastating.
For the winner, it will be just another accolade added to the trophy room. It will also serve as huge confidence booster going into the new La Liga season.
For the losers, it will be one way to review their preparations for the new season.
The current Barcelona side, boasting names like Messi, Malcom and Vidal looks to be the strongest side in the La Liga going into this new season. Can they kick-start things with a win over Sevilla?
