Last time in the Shield, City lost and for this to be vs the team they swept in the league and pipped for the title should be motivating for the club.

Plus, this will be the fourth trophy on the quest for the sextuple as this, the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup still to be played.

Pep vs Mikel, a cracking match awaits the fans.

It should be a very interesting tactical battle.
