Barcelona Gives Sevilla a Super Noogie
Sometimes, the big stage produces bona fide no-doubters.
In those cases, the second leg of a final like this year's Super Cup is simply redundant.
Barcelona added a smash-o-rama to its first leg smackdown of overmatched Sevilla, resulting in a resounding 3-0 win.
Add that to its 2-0 advantage coming into the second 90, and -- as if it was ever in question -- the Catalans are bona fide.
None other tan Arda Turan ignited the goal barrage only ten minutes after kickoff:
The magical Lionel Messi assists on yet another goal.
That basically sealed the Super deal, and both sides knew it. The rest of the half was evidence of that.
Turan didn't need any assists when play resumed, though.
Dude launched a heatseeker on the Sevilla post:
Well, it's not Barça's job to stop Barça.
If Messi's been questioned for anything -- besides going dark for Argentina -- it's been for his heading skills. ut he proved them wrong for at least one moment, in the 55th minute.
The smallest man on the pitch and he wins the header.
Poor defense or Magical Messi?
