Late substitute Pedro scored an extra-time winner as FC Barcelona won the UEFA Super Cup for a fifth time in their club history. Europa League winners Sevilla showed great character and surprised the Champions League holder in a nine-goal thriller in Tbilisi.

Great spectacle in Tbilisi

First goal was scored in 3rd minute, when Ever Banega netted a delightful free-kick from 25-yards out. Lionel Messi found an answer for Sevilla’s goal with two sublime free-kicks and he put Barça 2-1 early in the game. Few minutes later Rafinha and Luis Suarez made it 4-1 and everyone thought that the game was over but fantastic goals scored by Jose Antonio Reyes, Kevin Gameiro and Yevhen Konoplyanka forced extra time before Pedro made it 5-4 in 115th minute of the game.

Catalans’ coach Luis Enrique and his players celebrated wildly when Scottish referee Willie Collum blew the whistle for the last time after 01:00 local time. But Barcelona provided La Liga rivals Real Madrid with much optimism as Rafael Benitez prepares for his first season as coach in Spain. Enrique’s side scored 110 goals last season and they may have to find as many if they want to successfully defend the tittle this year. Barça’s triumph means they have won as many as four trophies this year after winning three major cups last season.

Pedro's last game for Barcelona

Match-winner goalscorer Pedro has told his team he wants to leave the Barcelona. The player has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, as Red Devils look to replace Angel Di Maria, who joined Paris Saint Germain for $69 million last week.

This game could be his last appearance for the Catalans and it barely could have been more dramatic. The long-serving winger started the game on the bench but it was not until extra time when Pedro was sent on. The 28-year-old attacker rebounded the ball after Sevilla keeper Beto had saved Messi’s free-kick and pushed it to the net.

Can Barcelona be unstoppable again this year? We will se soon.
