Manchester City has clinched victory in the UEFA Super Cup by defeating Sevilla on penalties in Greece on Wednesday night, following a 1-1 draw in regular time.
Sevilla initially secured the lead in the first half with a remarkable header from Youssef En-Nesyri, who expertly directed the ball past Ederson.
Pep Guardiola’s team responded in the 65th minute with an impressive goal from 21-year-old Cole Palmer, who found the net just as he had in the Community Shield.
Despite the sweltering conditions at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, both teams displayed a strong desire to win. Although the pace of the match fluctuated, the determination to secure victory was evident.
Manchester City, the favorites, began energetically, with Grealish and Palmer putting pressure on Sevilla’s goalkeeper Bono in the early moments.
Nonetheless, Sevilla seized the advantage 25 minutes into the game as En-Nesyri executed a forceful header from a brilliant cross by Marcos Acuna.
