The Catalan giants Barcelona won against Sevilla at the Spanish Super Cup match at Stade De tenger, Morocco on Monday morning, August 13, 2018. Lionel Messi who became ‘the man of the match’ in the match managed to record a new record as the player with the most trophies in history club.
As is known, Barcelona was faced with Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup match, following Sevilla who made it to the Copa Del Rey final last season. From the start, the match was dominated by Barcelona, and the defending champions, the Spanish League, won a narrow 2-1 victory over Sevilla. Many thanks to him, Barcelona also won the Spanish Super Cup this year which became their first trophy in the 2018/19 season.
Lionel Messi appeared as the starter in the match as the new captain, despite not scoring a goal but in fact La Pulga as usual appeared brilliant, even being chosen as ‘the man of the match’. Not only that, Messi, who has aged 31 years, also recorded a new record in the Spanish Super Cup trophy.
Practically with this victory, Lionel Messi has collected 33 championships together with Barcelona since 2005. That number is the highest for a player in the club’s history. Andres Iniesta, who first debuted in Barcelona and left Camp Nou in the summer of last year, actually only collected 32 titles.
Messi officially became the player with the most collective title collection with Barca. The 2018 Spanish Super Cup is the 33rd trophy achievement, since he started his first debut in 2005. Pique and Sergio Busquets who both joined the Barca first team in 2008, became the closest competitor with 28 collective trophies, both of which are still active to date.
