Team News: Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez start for Barcelona against Sevilla

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez start for Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup first leg against Sevilla.

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have been included in Barcelona's starting lineup for the Spanish Super Cup first leg against Sevilla this evening.

Manager Luis Enrique has included two thirds of the famous attacking trio for his side's first competitive game of the season, with Neymar currently representing Brazil at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Arda Turan comes in for Neymar in an otherwise full-strength side, with Sergi Roberto chosen to replace the departed Dani Alves at right-back.

Sevilla, meanwhile, make four changes to the side that was just a minute away from winning the European Super Cup against Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Gabriel Mercado, Adil Rami, Sergio Escudero and Matias Kranevitter all coming into the team.

Franco Vazquez, who scored against the European champions, is one of three summer signings to keep their place, alongside Hiroshi Kiyotake and Luciano Vietto.

Sevilla: Sergio Rico; Mariano, Mercado, Rami, Escudero; Kranevitter, N'Zonzi; Vitolo, Franco Vazquez, Kiyotake; Vietto

Barcelona: Bravo; S. Roberto, Pique, Mascherano, Mathieu; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Turan, Messi, Suarez
