Bayern Munich 2-1 Sevilla: Martinez Extra Time Goal Gives Bayern Super Cup Victory

Bayern Munich added to its impressive list of trophies in 2020 as they beat Sevilla 2-1 in the UEFA Super Cup on Thursday at Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary.

Sevilla took the lead from the penalty spot on 13 minutes when Lucas Ocampos scored an outrageous “no look” penalty after Ivan Rakitic was bundled over by David Alaba.

Bayern equalised before the break, Leon Goretzka scoring from Robert Lewandowski’s superb touch, with both sides having opportunities to win after the break.

Lewandowski and Leroy Sane saw goals chalked off for Bayern but the biggest chance fell to Sevilla substitute Youssef En-Nesyri in the closing moments, seeing his shot touched away by Manuel Neuer with only the keeper to beat.

Yassine Bounou made a save on a shot by David Alaba from a Bayern corner but failed to clear the danger in the 104th minute. As a result, Martinez had ample time to measure and place his header past the Sevilla goalkeeper.

The showpiece was watched by supporters inside the 67,000-capacity Puskas Arena, the first major European match to allow fans since the Coronavirus pandemic forced the game into lockdown.
