Barcelona Big Favourites To Beat Sevilla in UEFA Super Cup

Published on August 3rd, 2015 7:37 pm EST

Barcelona will be squaring off against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on August 11th, 2015. The game will be taking place at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The UEFA Super Cup pits the winners of Champions League (Barcelona) against the winners of the Europa League (Sevilla). The 2015 will feature the game's first ever rematch, as Sevilla topped Barcelona 3-0 to win the 2006 UEFA Super Cup at the Stade Louis II in Monaco.

Times have changed and the odds of Sevilla beating the 2015 edition of Barcelona are much slimmer. Let's take a look at the betting odds for this match:

Barcelona, 1.33
Draw, 5.50
Sevilla, 8.00

Barcelona, which had one of the greatest seasons in football history last year, will be looking to get their year off to a strong start against Sevilla. Some of Barcelona's stars, including Lionel Messi and Neymar, Jr., had busy offseasons thanks to the Copa America, though they were rested during the International Champions Cup and should be in top form on August 11th.

According to the bookmakers, the top three likeliest outcomes of the clash between Barcelona and Sevilla are:

Barcelona Wins 2-0, 8.50
Barcelona Wins 2-1, 8.50
Barcelona Wins 3-0, 9.50

The likeliest result that includes a Sevilla win? That would be a 2-1 win for Sevilla, which is currently going for 21.00.
