Man City vs Sevilla – SUPER CUP 8pm

Tonight 8pm. Man City vs Sevilla
Champions League winners vs Europa League winners.

UEFA says:
European champions Man City are taking on UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla in the traditional opener to the new UEFA club competition season.

The sides have met four times in UEFA club competition, with City winning all four games (including two in the 2022/23 Champions League group stage). However, Sevilla have been much improved since the arrival of José Luis Mendilibar as coach in March 2023, notably eliminating City’s neighbours Man United en route to winning the Europa League for the seventh time.

This is first-time European Cup-winners City’s maiden Super Cup, while Sevilla have already been here six times before (all as UEFA Cup or Europa League winners). However, they are on a five-game Super Cup losing streak after beating Barcelona 3-0 on their debut in 2006.

Expert predictions

Matthew Howarth, Man City reporter:
City’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Arsenal in the FA Community Shield will only have increased their determination to claim their first silverware of what many expect to be another hugely successful campaign. In İlkay Gündoğan, Pep Guardiola may have lost one of the key protagonists of last season’s treble win, but Croatian duo Mateo Kovačić and Joško Gvardiol are exciting acquisitions. The City boss may experiment in Piraeus, but he will be confident his team is too strong for Sevilla.

 

The event is finished.
