Good night

(or good morning if you're in Tbilisi)

Well that was an entertaining evening, hope you enjoyed reading about it (or second screening with us - I know all the jargon).

Plenty of other football to read about on the BBC Sport website tonight. Lots of League Cup shocks including Oxford's 4-0 rout of Championship Brentford.

If Dundee derbies are your thing, that ended 2-2 thanks to an injury-time equaliser.

You can also read the full report on this amazing game, and Pedro's transfer request. It's all just one click away.

Pedro on the move?

Barcelona's technical secretary Roberto Fernandez has confirmed that Pedro wants to leave the club.

The 28-year-old Spain forward, who has spent his whole career at Barca, is a reported target of Manchester United. He is thought to have a release clause of about £22m.

Fernandez told Esport 3: "Pedro has told me he wants to go. The buy-out clause in Pedro's contract is not negotiable but this could be his final game." 

We’re the super-champions of Europe! #DRE4M #FCBLive

Super-champions of Europe? Not sure that's a thing, Barca.

Barcelona's players celebrate

No time for Barcelona to celebrate this one too much though. On Friday they face Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup first leg (second leg is on Monday). Can they win two trophies in the first week of their season? You'd fancy their chances.

I think I've seen Arda Turan there celebrating with his new team-mates. The summer signing from Atletico Madrid can't play until January because of a transfer ban. I presume he won't get a medal either. But not a bad start to life as a club employee.

Gerard Pique brings the trophy down the stairs as Barcelona continue their celebrations on the pitch and pose for photographs.

I hope they have recycling bins in Tbilisi for that ticker tape. It was everywhere.

This will be Andres Iniesta's first trophy as permanent captain after Xavi left following over a decade of lifting silverware.

Uefa boss Michel Platini hands the trophy to the midfielder and the party can begin.

Ticker tape everywhere.

Barcelona's players go up to collect their medals and lift the trophy. Luis Enrique has won four cups in just over a year as Barcelona boss.

Barcelona are in the running for six trophies this season. The Uefa Super Cup, the Spanish Super Cup (which they play in the next week against Athletic Bilbao), the Club World Cup and then the big three which they won last season.

I saw quotes from Luis Enrique saying they were hoping to win all six. That dream almost ended before it started today.

They make all the Sevilla players walk past the trophy, which seems a bit mean. But there you go.

Barcelona's players give their Sevilla counterparts a guard of honour as they go up to collect their runners-up medals.

Pedro Rodriguez

Tonight was Pedro's second Uefa Super Cup goal. Both came in the 115th minute and both were winning goals.

Spooky, eh?

The other was against Shakhtar Donetsk in 2009.

With the 2 sitters Sevilla missed at the end they should've win the game. Incredible ridiculous match. #bbceurofooty

It's game over, Barcelona wins it. What a thrilling encounter. Can any other sport match this? Football is just epic, life. #bbceurofooty

That really was an astonishing game of football! The fans are the winners here... along with Barcelona #UEFASuperCup #bbceurofooty

A few records from that game.

Barcelona are now the joint most successful Super Cup team ever - they have won five tournaments, the same as AC Milan.

Dani Alves has now won four (one with Sevilla), level with Milan legend Paolo Maldini.

And that was the highest scoring Super Cup match ever.

12 - Spain have won more Supercup titles (12) than any other nation; ahead of Italy (9) and England (7). Domination.

That game was almost inappropriately good. Barcelona led 4-1 and threw it away. They go 5-4 up in extra time and Sevilla miss an open goal to make it 5-5 and go to penalties.

FULL-TIME - Barcelona 5-4 Sevilla

That brings to an end one of the greatest games of football I have ever seen.

OH MY WORD. The free-kick is played to Ciro Immobile who squares it to Adil Rami and the defender blazes over an empty gaping goal from two yards out. A sitter.

Free-kick to Sevilla - everyone goes up.

Sevilla get the ball and break and Mariano is in the box but he's denied by a wonderful tackle from Jeremy Mathieu. That was match-saving by the Frenchman.

Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez takes it to the corner.


Michael Krohn-Dehli and Dani Alves are both booked for their roles in that melee. A minute to go. 

A huge bust-up between both sets of players. I'm not sure what's happened here. 

It should be 5-5. Ever Banega picks out Coke with his free-kick, but the defender - in a lot of space in the penalty box - heads it just wide. Agonising.

Apparently that was Pedro's 99th goal for Barcelona. This could be his final appearance if he has put in a transfer request as reports suggest. Three minutes left to get his 100th.

Sevilla go straight down the other end and Yevhen Konoplyanka tries to find Vitolo but a Barcelona defender just about intercepts it.

This has been a game for the ages.

GOAL - Barcelona 5-4 Sevilla - Pedro

Pedro Rodriguez celebrates

Surely this is the winner. Lionel Messi's free-kick hits the wall and comes back to him, he shoots again but it's saved by Beto with Pedro turning it in from close range.

Free-kick in Lionel Messi territory. Mariano brings down the Argentina on the edge of the D.

It's like a training game - I think there must be 21 players in Sevilla's half now. It's attack v defence.

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi goes on a dribble, Adil Rami tackles him and wins the ball but it's a free-kick. It was a double footer. It's not shooting distance though, and Barca win a corner from Coke's head.

It mightn't surprise you to know this is the highest scoring Super Cup game ever.


Barcelona forward Lionel Messi tries a bicycle kick from 12 yards but it's well over. That would have capped off a phenomenal game.

Luis Enrique

Sevilla have all 11 players behind the ball as Barcelona try to find a way through.

Sevilla striker Ciro Immobile, who has been anything but since coming on, causes Barcelona early pressure but Gerard Pique does enough to stop him in the box.


Second half of extra time under way.

It's 1am in Georgia now. I asked if any of you have attended sports games this late.

We are watching most of premier league and champions league fixture this late in Tbilisi, Georgia. #bbceurofooty

#bbceurofooty Once stayed to watch the local sports team in triple overtime, game ended 230 am, made it to work for 7 am and passed out

#bbceurofooty wasn't there but @andy_murray finished a match at about 3am in Munich in May #pasthisbedtime


Half-time in extra time.

Sevilla have the final chance of the half as Mariano's shot is easily held by keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.


One minute added on.
