Manchester City will look to open its Champions League 2022-23 campaign on a positive note when it travels to Sevilla for the opening fixture on Tuesday.
Pep Guardiola’s side – which Real Madrid eliminated in the last edition – will look to make amends, with the team having a new face leading its attack this time.
Erling Haaland has found the net 10 times in his first six Premier League appearances for City – the joint-fastest a player has reached 10 goals in the competition’s history – alongside Mick Quinn of Coventry City in December 1992.
The Norwegian has already become the missing piece to Pep’s attacking puzzle and will look to continue that impact in his debut Champions League fixture in City colours.
Sevilla, on the other hand, has been in disappointing form this season, failing to win any competitive fixture so far. It comes into the match following a 0-3 loss to Barcelona and will be desperate to turn its fortunes sooner than later.
