Sergi Roberto #20 of Barcelona (far right) lines up the defensive wall in front of the Barcelona goal during the first half of the International Champions Cup 2018 match against the Tottenham Hotspur at Rose Bowl on July 28, 2018 in Pasadena, California.

It was Barcelona's 13th Supercup and sixth in the last nine seasons.

Dembele then put Barca ahead before Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved Wissam Ben Yedder's last-gasp penalty.

New captain and five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi celebrated his 33rd title as LaLiga champions Barca edged Spanish rivals Sevilla 2-1 in Tangier.

Gerard Pique, who announced his global retirement with Spain on Saturday, levelled three minutes before the interval for Barcelona after he was fastest to respond to a loose ball following a Messi free-kick.

"I don't know if he needs matches like today, that is a question for him" he said when asked if the player had received a confidence boost.

Jose Mourinho lists second-place finish among 'greatest achievements'
Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline. And with the transfer window closing later today, boss Jose Mourinho is still hopeful of making one more signing.

Spanish football federation announced that there will not be restrictions on the number of non-EU players as it classed the game as "not professional".

"I think that Sevilla are professionals and we are professionals".

The Blaugrana's trio of new signings: Malcom, Arturo Vidal and Arthur - three non-EU players - are likely to feature in the final, changed to a single match rather than a two-legged affair as in previous years, while defender Marlon has also travelled to Tangier, Morocco.

Sevilla qualified for the Supercopa as runners-up of the Copa del Rey following Barcelona's domestic double.

Brazilian Philippe Coutinho is thought to have gained a Portuguese passport in the last few days through his wife, with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi already having European Union citizenship.
