TBILISI---Barcelona is bidding to match one of the
greatest years in its history by winning six titles
in 2015, but will have to cope without striker Neymar
in today s season-opening UEFA Super Cup against
After winning the Champions League and the
Spanish league and cup double last season, Barcelona
is looking to match its record-breaking 2009 calendar
year by winning the UEFA and Spanish Super Cups,
plus the Club World Cup.
Neymar was ruled out for two weeks Sunday after
catching mumps even though the club said he had
previously been vaccinated against the disease.
Left-back Jordi Alba is also absent with a thigh
injury, while summer arrivals Aleix Vidal and Arda
Turan are ineligible until January due to a transfer
ban. They have still traveled to Tbilisi, as has forward
Pedro, who may be sold before the transfer window
For Barcelona, the game follows a busy pre-season
with games in the United States, Italy and the club s
home ground Camp Nou, while for Europa League
holder Sevilla, it comes after a summer of change.
Three of the players who started for Sevilla in
May s Europa League final have left, including Colom-
bian striker Carlos Bacca, who scored twice in the
final, a 3-2 win over Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. Among
the new faces for Unai Emery s team is Ukrainian
winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, who played for Dnipro
in that game.
Emery said through a translator that he was "con-
tent" with Konoplyanka s adaptation to the team,
aided by the arrival of Russian-speaking assistant
coach Dmitry Cheryshev, and that the winger s output
had been solid in pre-season but "it needs to be even
The Super Cup is the first major European final
to be held in Georgia, where conditions are likely to
be warm and dry, despite a very late kickoff at 10.45
p.m. local time. That will suit European TV networks,
but not necessarily the local fans who rushed for
tickets in a rapid sell-out.
The Super Cup was played in Monaco from 1998
until 2012, but now takes place at a neutral venue
chosen by UEFA. That spreads the spoils of UEFA
competition around smaller federations at a time
when UEFA president Michel Platini is running for
president of Fifa. (AP)

UEFA Super Cup win
GENEVA---Fifa cannot make credible
changes in the last months of Sepp Blat-
ter s leadership of the scandal-hit body,
former presidential candidate Prince Ali
bin al-Hussein said yesterday.
The Jordanian prince also doubted the
worth of Fifa s in-house reforms task force
which is supported by Michel Platini, his
former ally and now front-runner to suc-
ceed Blatter in the February 26 election.
"I don t think anybody will take any
decisions that are credible in the current
situation," Prince Ali said in a telephone
"I think that the important thing is that
you need an overall change in leadership,"
said the prince, who described Platini as
"not good for Fifa" when the UEFA pres-
ident launched his campaign two weeks
ago. "The entire football world would like
to see a change."
Still, Prince Ali has not committed to
making a second bid to be president and
enact that change.
"Right now I m talking to our national
associations, listening to their opinions,"
said the prince, who got votes from 73 of
Fifa s 209 member federations when Blatter
won re-election in May.
Within four days, Blatter announced he
would leave office under pressure from
dual American and Swiss federal investi-
gations of corruption that finally drove
World Cup sponsors to demand a change
of culture at Fifa.
Prince Ali could outline campaign plans
on September 7 as a keynote speaker at
the Soccerex conference in Manchester,
"It s a place where I will obviously want
to present my ideas for what I think is best
for the organisation," said the prince, who
served as Asia s Fifa vice president for four
years until May.
