Barcelona vs. Sevilla: Spanish Supercup will be one-off match

Gab Marcotti explains Paulinho's move back to Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande and wonders if Barcelona has another big move coming soon.

The Spanish Supercup between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played on Aug. 12 at a neutral ground as a one-off fixture, the country's football federation announced on Monday.

La Liga and Copa del Rey champions Barcelona will take on Sevilla, the cup runners-up, in the Spanish Supercup, the traditional curtain raiser for the season.

Sevilla last week rejected the proposal made by both Barca the federation to play the Supercup as a single game and instead wanted a two-legged affair as it has always been the case since the competition's creation in 1982.

With no agreement reached between the clubs, the RFEF's executive committee has taken a decision and ruled on Monday that the final should be played as a one-off game.

"It has been a unanimous decision made by the committee to play the Supercup as a single game on August 12 on a neutral ground," RFEF president Luis Rubiales said in a news conference on Monday. "The most likely venue will be Tangier [Morocco].

"We considered other options such as Valencia and Madrid but the financial aspect wasn't there.

"The temperature in Tangier will be suitable as will the financial aspect.

"One of the clubs wanted a financial compensation of €950,000 and playing in Tangier that figure will be more than met. But we have to wait for FIFA's approval."

Barcelona have won the Supercup a record 12 times while Sevilla have lifted the trophy just once in 2007 and finished as runners-up twice.
