But City will be perhaps be more motivated during their first appearance in the Super Cup as they look for more European glory.
City beat Sevilla twice in last season’s Champions League group stages on route to winning the competition for the first time.
The Etihad outfit won 4-0 in September before a 3-1 victory two months later that confined the LaLiga side to the Europa League.
However, Sevilla themselves went onto triumph in UEFA’s secondary competition for a record seventh time after beating Roma in May.
