Our match prediction:
Following a 2-0 win over Sevilla at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, Barcelona will be looking to put an icing on the cake when they face Jorge Sampaoli’s men in the Spanish Super Cup, return leg. Despite playing without pacey winger Neymar, Barca proved their worth in the first leg, but they can’t afford any complacency in the return leg. Luis Enrique’s men are eager to record yet another routine win over Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup and seeing that a number of first-team regulars left los Sevillanos in the summer transfer window, we predict that the Catalan giants are going to record yet another routine win over the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit. As always, all eyes will be on duo Leo Messi – Luis Suarez and the South American stars are likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders in Wednesday’s football match at Camp Nou.
Highligted Player (Arda Turan):
Arda Turan is one of the most famous footballers in the history of Turkish football and he is widely tipped to break Rusti Recber’s record of 120 caps for Milli Takim. The attacking midfielder came to prominence at Galatasaray, while also impressing as Turkey reached the Euro 2008 semi-finals, and he immediately received offers from top European clubs to cash in on his impressive showings. However, it would take another three years before he finally decided to accept the call from Atletico Madrid, thus becoming the most expensive Turkish footballer. Turan played a key role for Diego Simeone’s side that impressed in both Spain and Europe from 2011 onwards, lifting the league trophy with los Colchoneros and narrowly missing out on the Champions League title. Achieving a superstar status in his country, Turan always performed well for the Turkey national team, making more than 90 appearances for Milli Takim before the age of 30, and scoring more than 15 goals.
