TANGIER, Morocco --Three points from Stade Ibn Batouta on Barcelona's 2-1 win over Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup.

Ousmane Dembele began what he hopes will be his breakout season with Barcelona by scoring the winning goal as La Liga champions Barcelona beat Sevilla to win the Spanish Super Cup in Morocco on Sunday.

Tottenham have just become the first Premier League club not to make a summer signing since the transfer window was introduced in 2003, but they have nine World Cup semifinalists and their squad certainly looked competitive at St James' Park.
