King’s Cup runners-up Sevilla took a surprise lead in the traditional curtain-raiser to the season against Barcelona when Pablo Sarabia fired home in the ninth minute after Luis Muriel had powered his way through the Barca defense.
The win makes Messi Barcelona’s most decorated player of all time with 33 trophies, one more than former midfielder Andres Iniesta. The Argentine lifted his first piece of silverware with Barca as club captain.
