Manchester City vs Sevilla 2023: UEFA Super Cup Preview and Prediction
On August 15, 2023, the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus will witness the clash between Manchester City and Sevilla as they vie for the first European trophy of the season. Read on to discover insights about this thrilling UEFA Super Cup encounter and our prediction.
Manchester City vs Sevilla:
Manchester City, the winners of the UEFA Champions League, are strongly favoured to secure their fourth piece of silverware this year. The Opta supercomputer assigns them a 68.8% probability of success. Notably, Erling Haaland has registered two goals in each of his three previous meetings with Sevilla. Despite Sevilla’s triumph in the UEFA Europa League in May, they have encountered a string of five losses in Super Cup games leading up to the upcoming showdown.
UEFA Super Cup Preview
Manchester City continues its quest for more silverware, and while they narrowly missed out on the Community Shield, the upcoming clash against Sevilla presents a less daunting challenge. Last season, City comfortably dispatched Sevilla in their Champions League journey, prevailing with a 4-0 victory away and a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium. Their four previous encounters have seen City emerge victorious with an aggregate score of 12-3.
Sevilla, however, has struggled against English clubs in European competition, losing four out of their last seven encounters (W2 D1). Despite their recent victory against Manchester United, their overall record against English teams has not been as favorable.
Although Sevilla secured their place in this game through a trophy win, their history in the Super Cup is unimpressive. Apart from their debut appearance in 2006, where they defeated Barcelona, they have suffered five consecutive losses (2007, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2020) in the Super Cup. Notably, the winners of the previous season’s Champions League have dominated the Super Cup, with nine out of the last ten editions being won by them.
A victory on Wednesday would secure Pep Guardiola’s fourth success in the competition as a coach, a feat achieved by only Carlo Ancelotti. Furthermore, it would mark City’s fourth trophy of the year, potentially followed by a fifth in the FIFA Club World Cup.
