Man City beat Sevilla on penalty shoot out to win first ever Super Cup

 

Manchester City overcame a deficit during regulation time before defeating Sevilla on penalties to capture the Super Cup for the first time ever.


Youssef En-Nesyri’s stunning header put City behind when they were given the rare chance to win a trophy that did not already bear their name. City initially failed to rise to the occasion.


The Sevilla striker was denied by Ederson several times in the second period and was made to pay for his wastefulness when Cole Palmer looped a header over Yassine Bounou to equalise.


City belatedly improved as the game headed towards full-time and almost won the game in stoppage time when Nathan Ake forced a sharp save from Bounou.


But City got the win they craved when Nemanja Gudelj missed the decisive penalty of the shootout, striking the bar and handing Pep Guardiola a record-equalling fourth Super Cup.
