Manchester City and Sevilla face each other this Wednesday (9:00 p.m. Movistar Champions League) in the European Super Cup. The team from Seville, brand new winner of the Europa League for the seventh time, is measured in Athens against Guardiola’s team, who crowned his treble with the conquest of the long-awaited Champions League. The English start as favourites, but Sevilla have already shown their competitive gene on many occasions in Europe. Those from Mendilibar, who signed a spectacular season finale, have faced the departure of their sports director Monchi this summer and have not moved excessively in the market. In this match, where they are looking for their second European Super Cup after the one achieved in 2006, they have an opportunity to clear up doubts after the puncture in their league debut against Valencia. To do this they will have to deal with the fearsome Haaland, who has made the people of Seville his favorite victim in previous clashes.
