Man United-bound Pedro seals Super Cup win for Barcelona in 9-goal thriller

Barcelona defeated Sevilla 5-4 after extra-time in Tbilisi.

Updated at 22.30pm

BARCELONA ADDED THE UEFA Super Cup to their treble win of trophies last season despite blowing a 4-1 lead with a stunning 5-4 win over Sevilla thanks to Pedro Rodriguez’s extra time winner.

Two magnificent free-kicks from Lionel Messi plus goals from Rafinha and Luis Suarez looked to have Barca well on course to claim their fourth trophy of the year after Ever Banega had given Sevilla a shock early lead.

However, Jose Antonio Reyes reduced the arrears before a Kevin Gameiro penalty and a debut strike from Yevhen Konoplyanka forced the game into an extra 30 minutes.

Barca weren’t to be denied, though, and in what could be his last game for the club, Pedro pounced on the rebound after Beto had denied Messi his hat-trick.
