Man City Triumphs in UEFA Super Cup with Penalty Shootout Win Against Sevilla


Pep Guardiola, who is from Spain and coaches the Manchester City team, talked about the big championship they won. They played against Seville, and the match went into penalty kicks. Manchester City won 5-4 in penalties after the main game time ended. This happened on Wednesday evening at the “Georgios Karaiskakis” stadium in Greece.

Pep Guardiola talked about the game, and he was quoted on the European Union’s official website. He mentioned that their goalkeeper Ederson helped them a lot by saving shots. He also said that they had lost a match on penalties last week against Arsenal, but this time they managed to win. Pep explained that the final game was tough, but one of his players, Cole Palmer, scored a fantastic goal.

Guardiola emphasized that there was a moment when En-Nesyri didn’t hit the ball perfectly, and that was a difficult time for them. He mentioned that Ocampos from the other team also came close to scoring, but their goalkeeper Ederson made an important save to help them out.

Guardiola kept talking and said, “At the beginning of the second half, we started to make our passes and control the game better. As we got closer to the end, we managed to score. In the final moments, we felt like we were the ones who could score another goal. He mentioned that if Sevilla had scored again, it could have been really difficult for his team.”

Manchester City has become the sixth team from England to win the Super Cup, which is a special soccer championship. They achieved this by winning the game. In the last five years, three English teams have won this title: Liverpool in 2019 and Chelsea in 2021.

A number of clubs have won the European Super Cup in the past. The ones that stand out are Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, and Arsenal.

Manchester City won 10 out of 20 matches in the Super Cup for English clubs throughout its history.

The Manchester City team from England played the match after winning their first-ever European Champions League title. They achieved this by beating the Italian team Inter Milan with a single goal. This happened in the final game of the tournament last season, which was held at the “Ataturk Olympic Stadium” in Istanbul, Turkey, during the 2022-2023 season.

Seville was the first team to earn a spot in the 2023 European Super Championship. They did this by winning the “Europa League” title, which they have won seven times before. To get this title, they played against Roma in the final match. The game went to penalty kicks, and Seville won 4-1. This exciting match took place at the “Pushkas Arena” stadium in Budapest, Hungary, for the final of the European league championship.

Moroccan player Youssef Al-Nusairi made a goal for Sevilla in the 25th minute of the match. He used his head to hit the ball into the goal on the right side of Manchester City’s goalkeeper Ederson. This happened because Marcos Acuña passed the ball to him. Al-Nusairi is now the second Moroccan player to score in the European Super Cup. The first was Hakim Ziyech, who scored for Villarreal in 2021.

Cole Palmer, a player from Manchester City, made a goal to tie the game. He did this in the 63rd minute of the match by using his head to hit the ball into the goal. The ball went to the right side of Yassin Bono, who is the goalkeeper for Seville. It was a great header that led to the goal.
