Spanish Super Cup To Be Held In Morocco

The Spanish Super Cup will take place outside of Spain for the first time, with this year’s clash between Barcelona and Sevilla to be held in Morocco.

In another significant change, the game will be a single fixture as opposed to the usual two-legged tie, as reported by Four Four Two.

The clash will take place at the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangier, Morocco on August 12, and will kick off at 10pm UK time.

Barcelona lost against Real Madrid last year but won the competition in 2016 when they thrashed Sevilla 5-0 on aggregate.

Ernesto Valverde’s side are involved in the competition this year having won La Liga last season, while Sevilla qualified as a consequence of reaching the Copa del Rey final, which they also lost to Barcelona.

New Barcelona signings Arthur and Clement Lenglet could feature in the clash, with the latter set to come up against his former club.

Barcelona have won the Spanish Super Cup 12 times, more than any other club, while Sevilla have won it just once.
