Uefa Super Cup 2015

Substitute Pedro scored an extra-time winner as Barcelona won the Uefa Super Cup for a record-equalling fifth time after a nine-goal thriller in Tbilisi.

Europa League winners Sevilla surprised the Champions League holders when Ever Banega netted a delightful free-kick.

Lionel Messi scored two sublime free-kicks to put Barca 2-1 ahead before Rafinha and Luis Suarez made it 4-1.

Jose Antonio Reyes, a Kevin Gameiro penalty and a Yevhen Konoplyanka goal forced extra time before Pedro struck.

Sevilla’s players can’t believe it. Nor, to be fair, can Barcelona’s. What a sport this. Barcelona were 1-0 down. They were 4-1 up, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez running riot. Yet they were pegged back to 4-4; extra-time. On came Pedro, the man who has asked to leave Barcelona, and, well, you just knew.

Barcelona’s first success in the competition since 2011 means they join Italian side AC Milan in winning it five times.
