We take a quick look at the 2015 UEFA Super Cup where the Catalan giants take on Sevilla FC in the second straight all-Spanish UEFA Super Cup at the Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena in Tbilisi on Tuesday 11th August.

Strikers Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie have both left the club, leaving Wayne Rooney as the the only experienced frontman in Van Gaal’s squad.
