Sevilla threaten to withdraw from tonight's Super Cup clash with Barcelona

But on Saturday the Royal Spanish Football Federation announced there were no restrictions on non-EU players for the Supercopa as it deemed the match "non-competitive". Sevilla are upset about various matters, including: the match being played in Tangier, that it's a one-off match and most recently because of the RFEF confirming there's no limit as to how many non-EU players can be used.

The video assistant referee (VAR) was used for the first time in Spanish football on Sunday to award midfielder Pablo Sarabia with Sevilla's opening goal against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.

According to the rule governing the game in Spain, only three non-EU players are allowed in each La Liga matchday squad. In their last statement for the 2018-2019 season, only three were due to be allowed, without exception.
