In the Spanish Super Cup, Barça and Sevilla met in the 2010 and 2016 editions of the competition, with the Blaugranes victorious on both occasions. The 2016 encounter saw Sevilla participating as Copa del Rey runners-up, having lost to Barça in the final -the same as this year. That time around, FC Barcelona lifted the Super Cup thanks to 0-2 and 3-0 triumphs in the two legs.
In 2010, the side coached by Pep Guardiola overcame a 3-1 first leg defeat by winning 4-0 at the Camp Nou, with Leo Messi scoring a hat trick.
