Manchester City vs Sevilla

, KO: 20:00 Aug 16, 2023, Karaiskakis Stadium
Sevilla

MANCHESTER CITY were crowned champions of Europe for the first time in their history and they have a chance to lift the European Super Cup for the first time too when they face Sevilla in Athens this week.

Pep Guardiola's side started their new Premier League season with a second gear stroll at Burnley when they cruised to a comfortable win. It was ominously easy for the champions.

They face the Europa League masters Seviilla, who clinched a quite remarkable record seventh success in the summer against Roma.

It really is an incredible achievement when you consider that since Sevilla first lifted the trophy in 2006, they have never finished higher than third in La Liga and they've only managed that twice.

Last season, they languished in 12th and still won it!

However, the Super Cup has become something of a hoodoo to them. They won it in their first final…and have now lost the last five finals they have been in.

José Luis Mendilibar's side started their new league season with an extremely disappointing 2-1 home loss to Valencia. His two main summer additions have been Loïc Bade from Rennes and Djibril Sow from Eintracht Frankfurt for a combined tally of £20 million.

How the bookies view it

Manchester City are strong favourites here at 2/5 with BetVictor. Sevilla are 15/2 with Paddy Power and the draw is 4/1 with bet365.

Recent head to heads

The sides have met four times – all in the Champions League, including last season – and Manchester City have won all four games.

Players to watch

All eyes as usual will be on Erling Haaland after his double in Lancashire on Friday night, but there could be value in Spanish playmaker Rodri who also scored and is a chunky 8/1 with bet 365 to score anytime.

Moroccan hitman Youssef En-Nesyri has 36 goals in just 63 La Liga appearances and netted at the weekend too at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. He is 3/1 to score anytime with UniBet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Pep Guardiola has won this trophy twice with Barcelona and once with Bayern Munich so he will be relishing the chance to win it with a third different club and this is a golden opportunity.

The only slight concern for City backers would be the fact they are playing Newcastle United on Saturday, but it's hard to believe they won't play a full strength team here.

City should have far too much for a limited Sevilla side, even accounting for their remarkable record in cup competitions.

The English champions do take chances though and a better team than Burnley would have exploited that, therefore it's far from impossible Sevilla could score in what should be an entertaining clash.

City to win and both teams to score is a backable 21/10 with Boylesports. Both teams to score has happened in seven of the last eight finals.

Man City got off to a flyer at Turf Moor and they can win this half time and full time at 11/10 with Coral.

    Fancy Man City strongly tonight, expecting them to dominate Seville just as they did the Champions League last year, and happy to follow on from Friday punt on City with goals and corners.

    It’s 10/11 with Bet365 for City to score 2 or more goals, and to win Over 3.5 Corners.

    This landed in both the head 2 heads last year, and fully expect it land for a 3rd on a bounce tonight in the super cup tonight.
