  • Sevilla threaten to boycott Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona

A club statement read: "Sevilla FC is surprised by the RFEF [Spanish football federation]'s statement 24 hours before the Super Cup", per the BBC.

The federation's rules normally only allow for teams to register five non-EU and use three in a matchday squad for La Liga games, and Sevilla made their objections clear on Saturday night.

According to reports in Spain, Barcelona's decision to omit Malcom is in response to Sevilla threatening to quit the Spanish Super Cup if Barca named more than three non-European Union players for the match.

With former captains Xavi and Iniesta, the architects of Barça's tiki-taka years of domestic and European hegemony, now departed Messi will be the undisputed leader of the side in 2018-19 as Valverde seeks to build on last season's domestic double by regaining the Champions League crown from Real Madrid.

The victor of the match that will be staged in Tangier, Morocco, will be decided over one leg for the first time.

The fixture, which will be played over one leg for the first time, represents an opportunity for Ernesto Valverde and Pablo Machin to take a look at some of their new recruits ahead of the new season.

"The club's legal department is studying the matter and should FC Barcelona submit a team with more than three non-EU players, it would present possible ground for the filing of a complaint on account of an improper line up".

After Messi and Iniesta come Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets, who both won their 28th trophy for Barcelona in the Super Cup win over Sevilla. Barca have taken four non-EU players to Morocco, including defender Marlon.

Playmaker Philippe Coutinho is a non-EU star, too, however, he has reportedly acquired a passport through his wife this summer.
