Bayern Munich Claim Super Cup

Champions League holders Bayern Munich beat last seasons Europa League winners after extratime in Budapest to win the UEFA Super Cup.

The annual final was relocated from Portugal to Hungary with some fans allowed in attendance. It was Sevilla who took the lead after they were awarded a penalty when striker DeJong was pushed by Alaba. Ocampos took a long run up and slotted into the corner barely taking his eyes off Neuer in the Bayern goal.

Despite falling behind it was the Germans who had the better chances with Lewandowski causing chaos and setting up Muller for a near miss. The Polish striker then had a chance himself but shot straight at Bono. Bayern found parity moments later when Muller played a beautiful outside of the foot chip through to Lewandowski who knocked it back to Goretzka. The midfielder slotted home.

The game went into a lull before halftime with neither side creating anything of note. However early in the second half Bayern had the ball in the net twice. Lewandowski looked to have gotten his usual goal, but it was ruled out for offside. Sane nearly had his first European goal for Munich, but the flag went up.

Sevilla could have won the game late on. Suubstitutte En Nesyri was through with just the keeper to beat, but Neuer pulled off an exceptional save. As extratime began En Nesyri would have another chance, this time the woodwork saved Bayern.

Bayern wouldn’t be denied a 4th trophy this year. Alaba had his shot parried by Bono. The ball went straight to Javi Martinez who headed in.

This is the 2nd time Bayern have lifted the Super Cup, having won it in 2013.
