Manchester City’s first match in a long journey for Champions League glory occurs on Tuesday, when La Liga giants Sevilla welcome the Premier League champions to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Group G. Los Palanganas were eliminated from the group stage before unsuccessfully challenging for Europa League glory, meanwhile, the Citizens were dumped out in the semi-finals by Real Madrid last year.
There was to be no third successive hat-trick for Erling Braut Haaland at the weekend, and even though the towering Norwegian made it 10 Premier League goals for the season at Villa Park, Man City dropped another two points early doors. Man City ran out 5-2 winners over two matches when they first met Sevilla competitively in the 2015-16 group stage, and if the home side were not already fearing an in-form Haaland enough, the 22-year-old struck four goals in two games for Borussia Dortmund against Los Palanganas in 2020-21.
Prior to the 2021-22 season, Sevilla had never failed to make it out of their Champions League group, albeit with limited success in the knockout stages, but Julen Lopetegui’s side could only finish third behind Lille and Red Bull Salzburg last term. Previous successes in Europe’s secondary tournament also counted for nothing as Sevilla lost to West Ham United in the last 16 of the Europa League, but a fourth-placed finish in La Liga handed Los Palanganas another chance to test their mettle in the top tier.
The home faithful can take some solace in the fact that their side are unbeaten in six Champions League opening-day group-stage games, though they have drawn each of their last four, and one point against Man City may be celebrated like all three this week. Sure, the performance of Karim Benzema, skilfulness of Vinicius Junior and impact of Rodrygo all contributed to Real Madrid’s astounding 6-5 aggregate win over Man City in last year’s Champions League semi-finals, but the Manchester club have never been eliminated from the group stage under Guardiola.
