Athens (Greece), Aug 17: English champions Manchester City edged Sevilla in a penalty shootout to clinch their first UEFA Super Cup, an annual showdown pitting the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League.

At the 32,115-seat Karaiskakis Stadium in Athens' southern coast, Morocco star Youssef En-Nesyri gave the Spanish side the lead in the 25th minute, while Cole Palmer netted the equalizer in the 63rd minute from Rodri's pass on Wednesday evening.

During the penalty shootout, Manchester City beat Sevilla 5-4 to lift their fourth trophy of 2023, reports Xinhua.

After five successful penalties for City, a miss by Sevilla's Nemanja Gudelj secured the prestigious prize for Pep Guardiola’s side after a clash played out at the home of Greek side Olympiakos.

The Catalan has now overseen 15 major trophies since taking charge at Manchester Club in the summer of 2016. The remarkable collection comprises five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups, one Champions League, two Community Shields and now the UEFA Super Cup.

City also have the opportunity to further add to their haul of silverware before 2023 is out. In December, City will be travelling to Saudi Arabia to take part in the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time.

Both sides could have won the game in normal time with Ederson making several key saves to deny En-Nesyri and Nathan Ake twice seeing goal-bound headers blocked.
