UEFA Super Cup is another opportunity for Manchester City to prove their European pedigree

The UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla presents another chance for Manchester City to prove their European pedigree. After an odyssey to finally secure the UEFA Champions League crown, Wednesday night’s clash with Sevilla could be another crowning moment for the European champions.

After toiling away in the Champions League for over a decade in pursuit of becoming footballing royalty, Manchester City are finally in the position the club was built to occupy. The seemingly endless pursuit of Champions League glory is now over. Now the next steps of the treble winners’ European journey begins.

The traditional battle between the Champions League winners and the Europa League champions is the stage City has always wanted to be on. The eyes of the footballing world will be on Athens, so the treble winners are finally on the stage they’ve coveted.

While the UEFA Super Cup isn’t the most prestigious of European titles, it is one the club hasn’t won before. Pep Guardiola’s squad will be determined to add it to their trophy haul. It would represent City’s place at the top of European football for the season ahead. Also, it could set the tone for the treble winner’s campaign ahead.

As one of a possible 6 trophies on offer this season, the Super Cup could be the first domino to fall. As the champions prepare for the game, the significance of the occasion shouldn’t be overlooked.
