Man City vs Sevilla betting preview

Manchester City will take on Sevilla in the European Supercup final at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus.
Pep Guardiola's Citizens managed to put behind them the defeat against Arsenal in the Community Shield and are now ready for a new trophy, the UEFA Super Cup
Winners of an historic treble last season, City are looking for the fourth trophy in three months and they are heavy favourites against a Sevilla side that isn't in very good form.
Man City avenged the defeat against Arsenal in the Community Shield and managed to start the new Premier League season with a win.
Pep Guardiola's team defeated newly promoted Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor, limiting their chances during a professional performance.
City was the dominant European team last season, winning three trophies: the UEFA Champions League, the Premier League, and the FA Cup.
City had a fairly easy time in the two-legged ties against Bayern (4-1 on aggregate) and Real Madrid (5-1 on aggregate) in the quarterfinals and semifinals. In the final, Rodri's goal was the difference in the 1-0 victory over Inter Milan.
On the other side, Sevilla is a club that seems to be in decline. The Andalusians had a disastrous campaign in La Liga last season in which they finished nine points clear of relegation.
Winning the Europa League saved the season for Los Rojiblancos but nevertheless, they started the new season with a 1-2 defeat at home against Valencia.
Sevilla have won the UEFA Cup/Europa League a record six times, but have only won the UEFA Super Cup once in six appearances.
The team lost their first Supercup match in 2006. They then lost five consecutive matches against AC Milan (2007), Real Madrid (2014 and 2016), Barcelona (2015), and Bayern Munich (2020).
The two teams have played against each other four times in the past, with the most recent two matches taking place in the group stage of the previous Champions League season.
City won both of the previous matches by at least two goals: 4-0 away and 3-1 at home. The other two meetings took place in the Champions League in the 2015/16 season.
The English team won both games against the Spanish team in the group stage, with scores of 2-1 at Etihad Stadium and 3-1 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
When it comes to team news, Kevin De Bruyne suffered a new injury against Burnley and was replaced after 23 minutes so the Belgian midfielder won't be able to play in the UEFA Super Cup.

Due to his absence, Mateo Kovacic is likely to partner Rodri in midfield. Jack Grealish is expected to return to the starting lineup. Ruben Dias suffered a minor injury and will not be playing.

Due to injuries, central defenders Marcao and Tanguy Nianzou will be unavailable for Sevilla. As a result, Loic Bade and Nemanja Gudelj will start as central defenders, as they did in the league.

Gabriel Montiel is expected to replace Jesus Navas at right back, the only change from the starting eleven used in La Liga.
