Manchester City Defeated Sevilla 5-4 On Penalties To Win The UEFA Super Cup

Manchester City have won the UEFA Super Cup, downing Sevilla on penalties after the game ended 1-1 at regular time in Greece on Wednesday night.

Sevilla took the lead in the first half, thanks to an impressive header from Youssef En-Nesyri as he powered an effort past Ederson.

But Pep Guardiola levelled up in the 65th minute through eye-catching 21-year-old Cole Palmer, who got on the score sheet, just as he did in the Community Shield.

It may not be what he is known for at this stage of his career, but it was also a well-placed header that saw the Premier League champions level things up.

On a sweltering night at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, the home of Olympiacos, the match wasn’t always played at full speed, but both teams were certainly there to win.

City were the clear favourites going into the game and started the brigher of the two, with Grealish and Palmer forcing early saves from Sevilla goalkeeper Bono. However, it was the Spaniards who took the lead 25 minutes in as En-Nesyri powerfully headed home a brilliant cross from Marcos Acuna.

City become the sixth English team to win the Super Cup.
