Manchester City defeat Sevilla to win UEFA Super Cup

Manchester City defeated Sevilla 5-4 on penalties to win the UEFA Super Cup after a keenly contested game in Greece on Wednesday August 15.

The Citizens add another trophy to their cabinet having won the English Premier League, FA CUP and UEFA Champions League titles in the 2022/2023 season.

Pep Guardiola’s men came into the UEFA Super Cup as massive favourites but met a resilient opposition in Sevilla and so needed a penalty shootout to get the win.

It was Sevilla who drew first blood, Youssef En-Nesyri leapt above Nathan Ake to meet Marcos Acuna’s cross and nod the Spanish La Liga side in front.

That goal saw them go into half-time with the lead but Manchester City will respond early in the second half.

City equalised through Cole Palmer who scored with a fine header in the 63rd minute.

With scores at 1-1 at the expiration of regulation time,  the match went to a penalty shootout where the Champions League winners were perfect.

Unlike their woeful outing at the English Community Shield, Manchester City scored all five before Nemanja Gudelj missed his spot kick and gifted them the trophy.
