Sevilla has experienced four losses in their previous seven encounters with English teams in all European competitions (won two, drawn one).

Super Cup is crucial to Man City’s season but it’s not about the trophy
Time: 19:40, Author: Mike Jones

Manchester City finds itself in an unprecedented era of triumph. Pep Guardiola has often been understandably annoyed by premature discussions of trebles and quadruples in previous seasons. However, his team has now ensured that the notion of a septuple is off the table, following their penalty shootout loss in the Community Shield.

For the fourth time in five matches, City is vying for a trophy as they step onto the field in Piraeus this evening. This historical location was once the chief port of ancient Greece, through which spoils of victory frequently passed.

Having become the 23rd club to claim the Champions League, City now has the opportunity to become the 25th club to lift the UEFA Super Cup. The list of previous winners is diverse, and City’s aspiration today is not to replicate the achievements of Mechelen or Aberdeen, nor to match Zenit St. Petersburg. One might argue that it mirrors the pinnacle of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Aberdeen, who triumphed over Bayern Munich en route to the Cup Winners’ Cup final, followed by victories against Real Madrid in the final, and European Cup winners Hamburg in the Super Cup.

Kevin De Bruyne facing up to four months out and may require surgery

Time: 19:25, Author: Mike Jones

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Manchester City’s star player, Kevin De Bruyne, is confronting the possibility of an absence lasting up to four months due to a hamstring injury. Surgery may also be necessary to address this concern.

De Bruyne, aged 32, was substituted off during the first half of the Champions League final victory against Inter Milan in June. He missed the entire pre-season due to this hamstring issue. De Bruyne made a return from the injury as a second-half substitute in the Community Shield match, which ended in a shootout loss to Arsenal. He subsequently captained the team in their Premier League opener against Burnley on Friday.
