Man City wins UEFA Super Cup with penalties victory.

Manchester City (England), a triple champion last season, has retained the European Football Association (UEFA) Super Cup.

City won the 2023 UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla (Spain) on Sunday (July 17) at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, Greece, 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.

The UEFA Super Cup is a single-legged competition between the winners of that year’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) and the winners of the Europa League to determine the winner.

After winning the UCL for the first time in the 2022-2023 season, which ran through June, City also won the Super Cup for the first time.

City completed a treble last season, winning the English Premier League (EPL), the Football Association (FA) Cup, and the UCL, and now they’ve added the Super Cup to their resume, proving that they’re the best team in Europe right now.

Pep Guardiola collected his 15th trophy with City.

Sevilla, on the other hand, who have won the Europa League seven times, the most in history, have only won the Super Cup in 2006, after winning their first Europa League title, and have lost all six Super Cups since.

It was Sevilla who took the early lead.

In the 25th minute, Yusef Ennesiri headed home a Marcos Acuña cross from the left flank to give Sevilla the lead.

After a slow first half, City responded with a header in the 18th minute.

Rodri’s cross from the left flank was met by Cole Palmer, who raced into the goal area and headed home a crucial equalizer.

In the ensuing penalty shootout, which remained evenly matched, City used five different kickers, including Elling Holland, Julian Alvarez, Matteo Kovacic, Jack Grealish and Kyle Walker.

For Sevilla, it was an evenly matched affair, with the first four kickers all finding the back of the net, but the fifth kicker, Nemanja Gudja, 먹튀검증토토사이트 saw a strong right-footed shot deflect off the crossbar.
