Manchester City vs Sevilla match preview

It’s time for the 48th edition of the UEFA Super Cup, with this year’s fixture taking place in Piraeus.

One of these two teams is fighting to lift this trophy for the very first time, while the other has been here on more occasions than almost anyone else.

Back in June, Manchester City completed the treble, crowned champions of Europe for the first time, with Rodri’s long-range strike downing Internazionale in İstanbul.

Now, here, this is one of six major trophies Pep Guardiola’s team could win this season, with the FIFA Club World Cup also to come in Saudi Arabia in December.

On Friday night, the Sky Blues kicked off their quest for an historic fourth successive Premier League title by easily beating Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor.

Erling Braut Håland scoring twice, despite touching the ball just 23 times all night, before Rodri wrapped up the points.

So now, will Manchester City become the 25th different club to win the UEFA Super Cup?

Sevilla meantime will feature in a seventh European Super Cup, with only Barcelona and Real Madrid having played in more.

Los Nervionenses hammered Barça 3-0 in their Super Cup debut in 2006, before losing all three subsequently, most-recently beaten 2-1 after extra time by Bayern Munich in Budapest in 2020.

All of this is due to the fact that los Hispalenses are Europa League kings, winning their favourite competition for a record-extending seventh time by in May.

José Luis Mendilibar’s men beat Roma on penalties at Puskás Aréna, a result that catapulted Sevilla into this season’s Champions League group phase, despite having finished all the way down in 12th in La Liga.

On Friday night, their league season got off to an underwhelming start, beaten 2-1 by Valencia at Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.

Youssef En-Nesyri equalised mid-way through the second half, only for Loïc Badé to be sent off shortly after, with Valencia snatching the win with just two minutes to go.

Just three of the last 14 UEFA Super Cups have been won by the Europa League winners, with Atlético Madrid responsibly for all three of these triumphs.

Also, these two teams met in the Champions League group stages less than 12 months ago, with the Premier League champions prevailing 4-0 and then 3-1.

Thus, a comfortable Manchester City victory seems very likely at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

Manchester City team news

Having hobbled off injured in the Champions League Final, Kevin De Buryne did the same at Turf Moor on Friday night, and is set to be sidelined for several months.

Weirdly, Jack Grealish was an unused substitute in that one, but he’ll surely come into the XI this time.

New signing Joško Gvardiol came off the bench against Burnley, making his debut, so will the Croatian defender come into the XI this time, possibly in place of Rico Lewis?

Mateo Kovačić has previously won the UEFA Super Cup on three occasions, seeking to add a fourth here.

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Aké, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovačić, Foden, Silva, Grealish; Håland.

Sevilla team news

Jesús Navas, who will be facing his former club here, was part of the Sevilla team that won this competition 17 years ago.

There were no new signings in José Luis Mendilibar’s starting XI on Friday night, although Djibril Sow did come off the bench for his debut.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Bounou; Navas, Badé, Gudelj, Acuña; Fernando, Rakitić, Ocampos, Suso, Lamela; En-Nesyri
