Sevilla FC will attempt to become the second club to successfully defend the UEFA Super Cup on Friday when they will meet the only side to have achieved that feat, AC Milan.

Milan record
Already the sole four-time winners of the trophy, Milan aim to make it five at Monaco's Stade Louis II after clinching the UEFA Champions League title in May. It will be their seventh appearance in the 33rd edition of the competition, putting them one ahead of the record they previously jointly held with FC Barcelona. They won their last appearance 1-0 against FC Porto in 2003.

Sevilla aim
Meanwhile Sevilla, who defeated then European champions Barcelona 3-0 on their UEFA Super Cup debut last year, hope to repeat the trick after again winning the UEFA Cup last season. Their margin of victory in 2006 was the highest since the event became a one-off game in 1998. The match is the traditional curtain-raiser to the new European season and will follow a number of prestigious events in the principality.

Draw and awards
The draw for the UEFA Champions League group stage will take place at the Grimaldi Forum on Thursday, starting at 18.00CET. The ceremony will include the UEFA Club Football Awards, which are given by European football's governing body to the best players in last season's competition. The same venue will host the UEFA Cup first-round draw (13.00) the following day. Be sure to return to uefa.com for comprehensive coverage of all the news and views from Monaco this week.
