He Bayern Munich He took the European Super Cup after beating a Sevilla with suffering who left everything at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.
In a duel between the six-time European champions, the Germans from the Champions League and the Spaniards from the Europa League, the title was resolved in extra time, after about 90 regulatory minutes dominated but not finished by the Germans. Javi Martínez was the unexpected hero for those of Flick, who won by a tight 2-1.
Sevilla took little time to get ahead, penalty. After 10 minutes of the game, which had been dominated by Bayern, Alaba he threw Rakitic into the area and he, upon noticing contact, dropped. So doubtful was it that the VAR had to review it, although it finally conceded it. Lucas Ocampos, from eleven meters, did not forgive.
The problem is that the pressure from Bayern did not end, quite the opposite. Goretzka culminated a great play, which began Müller to throw it into the area, and from there yield to the Bayern striker, a Lewandowski who yielded to his teammate to score 1-1. At the minute De Jong He almost put Lopetegui’s men ahead again, but was offside.
In the second half, Bayern showed their weapons. In fact, he got to punch Bono’s goal twice, first Lewandowski and then Sané, but in both cases the referee annulled them for offside. Especially dubious was the first, which required the intervention of the VAR and still required several repetitions.
Throughout the second half the occasions followed one another, although the one who forgave En-Nesyri in 1986 it was the clearest and, possibly, it could have been decisive. He ran into Neuer in a heads up, his specialty.
The Moroccan had another very clear as soon as the subsequent extension began. He cut the defender and with great skill fired a ball that the goalkeeper rejected as best he could to the post.
It had to be a Spaniard, as soon as he went out onto the pitch, who killed Sevilla’s options. Javi martinez, whose future seems more outside than inside Bayern, took advantage of a slightly flawed clearance by Bono to head the goal that led to 2-1. Minute 104.
Sevilla tried, and in fact Escudero almost reached a ball that Neuer would not have already reached, but the Andalusian resistance ran out of time. As in the last Super Cup that was played, again, Bayern came out champion.
