When Manchester City and Sevilla face battle in the UEFA Super Cup match on Wednesday, it will be the second opener for both teams this summer.
Manchester City will try to prevent a reoccurrence of the Community Shield. After finally winning the Champions League last season, Pep Guardiola’s team will compete for a second continental title, while Jose Mourinho won’t be able to stop Los Palanganas’ unwavering hold on the Europa League in 2022–2023.
Manchester City vs Sevilla
The UEFA Super Cup will be played on Wednesday night between the winners of the Europa League. Sevilla, and the Champions League, Manchester City, at a neutral site at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus.
Since winning the league championship five times in the last six years, Manchester City has long been regarded as the best team in England. However, the previous campaign was genuinely significant because it was their first Champions League win. They not only won the UCL championship but also the Premier League and FA Cup crowns. Making them only the eighth team in Europe to accomplish the feat.
Since joining La Liga in the 2001–2002 season, Sevilla has experienced by far its poorest season. They placed 12th overall, although for about half of the season it appeared they would be in the relegation fight. However, following a solid finish, they rose in the rankings. However, they once again excelled in the Europa League, claiming their seventh championship!
Manchester City lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield final, but when they play Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup final in Greece, they might win their first trophy of the year.
Last season, Sevilla and City faced off in the group stages of the Champions League; Sevilla went on to win the Europa League after being demoted, while the Premier League champions took home the continent’s top honor.
Manchester City’s official season did not get off to a good start as they were defeated by Arsenal in the Community Shield following a penalty shootout. Nevertheless, they recovered with a 3:0 victory over Burnley and looked excellent. The previous season, the Citizens had a remarkable 74% win ratio in the Premier League. Given that they kept their key players, we anticipate them to be among the top teams in Europe once more this season.
On the other hand, Sevilla struggled mightily in La Liga the season before, finishing with only 49 points in 38 games and a -7 goal differential. They repeated their terrible La Liga performance this year by losing 2:1 at home to Valencia, a team that was a relegation contender last year.
After a rather successful start to the season, the biggest bet for this cup final is backing City to defeat a -1 handicap. Although the loss to Arsenal was disappointing, they may have treated the game at Wembley as a preseason match.
After defeating Burnley 3-0 at the weekend, the Manchester team should be motivated and on their game for this European night.
Erling Haaland scored twice against Sevilla last season, and after hitting a brace in the win over the Clarets, he is an obvious pick for an anytime scorer on Wednesday.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
