Preseason is over, and competitive club football is back. This is a cause of rejoice for every football fan, and we now get to that time of the season where the first piece of silverware is handed out.

Barcelona is one of the big teams in Europe looking for a title this weekend, as the Catalans face Sevilla over two legs to crown the Spanish Super Cup winner. Barça won both the Spanish league and the Cup last season, which means they technically didn't need to play this game. But the Copa del Rey runnner-up gets a shot in the Super Cup, and Sevilla will try to ruin Barça's domestic party.

And if one team can do it, it's Sevilla. New coach Jorge Sampaoli is one of the best in the world, an innovative tactician that wants to play with passion, yet doing it in an attractive way. He vows to fight for possession with the kings of possession in Barça, which certainly makes this a must-see game.

Plus, Sevilla's stadium is one of the most hostile environments in Spain, and the team is ready to shock the Catalan giants and win their first title of the season. But against Messi and Suárez, that won't be an easy feat. It's only the first leg, but this Sunday's game will be awesome. One you just cannot miss.
