UEFA change Super Cup rules ahead of meeting between Sevilla and Manchester City

Sevilla emerged as champions of the Europa League for an unprecedented seventh time in the previous season, triumphing over Roma in the final through a penalty shoot-out precisely four weeks ago. 

This victory secured their participation in the upcoming UEFA Super Cup against Manchester City, who clinched the Champions League under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.

The clash is scheduled to be held in Athens on the 16th of August, and it will introduce a recent modification implemented by UEFA. 

Beginning from the upcoming season, the Super Cup final will no longer have extra time if the match ends in a draw after the regular 90 minutes. 

Instead, the game will proceed directly to a penalty shootout to determine the winner (as stated in the rulebook).

Sevilla’s historical performance in the Super Cup has been rather disappointing, with just one victory in their past six finals of the competition. 

Therefore, they face a daunting task in their upcoming match against Manchester City as they aim to improve their record and add another title to their collection.
