All Manchester City vs. Sevilla matches
They met four times, with all victories in favor of Manchester City. In the 15/16 season, the team coached by Unai Emery went ahead in Manchester through Konoplyanka but the locals came back (2-1) with goals from Rami, against, and De Bruyne; in the second leg, the goal of Sevilla Tremoulinas was insufficient against those scored for the visitors Fernandinho, Sterling and Bony (1-3).
Less than a year ago, last September, Pep Guardiola’s players thrashed the Sánchez-Pizjuán 4-0 thanks to Haaland, author of a double, Foden and Ruben Dias; at the Etihad Stadium, Rafa Mir overtook the Andalusians but Manchester City turned the score around through Lewis, Julián Álvarez and Mahrez (3-1).

How does Seville arrive?
The Andalusian team comes from an irregular season, where they started very badly in La Liga in Spain (they even spent much of the tournament in the relegation zone), but they managed to come back in time and consecrate themselves from the Europa League after beating Roma on penalties. This allowed them to qualify for the Club Challenge, where they beat (also from the 12 steps) Independiente del Valle, the current champion of the South American.
Looking to lift another international title, the Sevillistas will go with their eleven gala in this meeting, where several Argentines are shaping up to be starters, including two world champions. Gonzalo Montiel and Marcos Acuña will be the wingers arranged by the coach, while Lucas Ocampos will also be from the start. Federico Gattoni, Erik Lamela and Papu Gomez will be on the bench.
How does Manchester City arrive?
Pep Guardiola arrives at this match as a clear favorite and with the mission of shouting champion for the first time in the season. With the Argentines Julián Álvarez and Máximo Perrone among those summoned, the English team will seek revenge for what happened in the Community Shield a few days ago, when they fell on penalties against Arsenal and lost the opportunity to complete the sextet.
Last Friday, City beat Burnley 3-0 in their English League debut and arrive with an intractable Erling Haaland, who scored twice. However, the coach will not be able to count on Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, or Rúben Dias, all of them injured, so he will have to make several modifications to face the final.
This will be the first time that City disputes the European Super Cup, since until its consecration in the last Champions League against Inter, it had only won one continental title: the 1969-70 Cup Winners’ Cup. If he wins, this will be only the third European trophy in his history.
Pass by Julián Álvarez and goal by Erling Haaland
Last Friday, Manchester City started on the right foot in the new edition of the Premier League, with an assist from Julian to Haaland and a 3-0 win against Burnley.
