Barcelona are on the way to Sevilla for Sunday’s Spanish Super Cup final against Athletic in the hope of landing a first trophy of the 2020-21 season.
Almost the entire first-team squad has made the trip, including injured stars Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati, although Gerard Pique and Philippe Coutinho are missing.

Ilaix Moriba is with the first-team squad as well, and Konrad de la Fuente, and both will be hoping to be part of the final 20-man squad for the game.
Barca are due to train at the La Cartuja Stadium later today and Ronald Koeman will name his 20-man squad after the session.
Of course one major doubt for the game is Lionel Messi. The latest updates suggest Messi is keen to play but it will all depend on how he feels during today’s training session.
