FC Barcelona powered to the Final of the Spanish Super Cup, after defeating Real Betis 4-2 via penalties at the King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia.
Robert Lewandowski and Ansu Fati scored for the Catalans but they were pegged back each time by Real Betis through Nabir Fekir and Loren Moron both in regulation time and in extra time.
Like Real Madrid, Barcelona also needed the lottery of spot-kicks to scale through and will face their arch rivals in a scintillating Final on Sunday
