STAR MECI AT BUDAPEST. Bayern Munich and Sevilla will play in the European Super Cup on Thursday. The confrontation of the “titans” takes place on Puskas Arena.
It comes from the position of winners of the Champions League; won 0-1 against PSG, thanks to the goal scored by Kingsley Coman in the 59th minute. He won all the Champions League matches played in the previous season (11 in number).
In the 11 victories he scored no less than 43 goals (an average of almost 4 goals / match).
The last match he played was the previous weekend, in the inaugural round of the 2020-2021 Bundesliga season; won with an unlikely 8-0 against Schalke 04, the 8 goals of the Bavarians being scored by Gnabry (x3), Goretzka, Lewandowski, Muller, Sane and Musiala. It presents an impressive balance for the last 22 official matches played in all competitions: 22 victories, 0 draws, 0 defeats. Decisive in the Champions League final, Kingsley Coman is uncertain for Thursday’s match.
He comes from the position of Europa League winner; won 3-2 in the final played with the Italians from Internationale Milano.
It is the most successful team in the Europa League / UEFA Cup. It is the first official match he plays in the current season.
It comes after 2 training games: with Levante and Athletic Bilbao; he won them both.
He has won 11 of the previous 12 official and friendly matches; is undefeated in the last 23 matches played. He made several important transfers during this summer break.
Marcos Acuna – from Sporting (10.50 million euros), Ivan Rakitic – from Barcelona and Oscar Rodriguez – from Real Madrid (13.50 million euros). Suso was finally acquired from AC Milan (24 million euros).
After a very good season in Granada (left on loan), Carlos Fernandez returned to the team and there are very good chances that the Spanish striker will be an important player in the current season.

Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Neuer – Pavard, Sule, Boateng, Davies – Kimmich, Goretzka – Gnabry, Muller, Sane – Lewandowski.

Football Prediction of the Day Bayern Munich vs Seville
Even if Bayern Munich is the clear favorite to win, I think it will be a great match, with many goals, both on one side and the other.
The German team is a real “goal machine” and I don’t think it will be an exception in this Super Cup and will manage to score at least once; the Germans come after an 8-0 success.
It seems that Sevilla is not considered too much, but the team coached by Julen Lopetegui has a lot of quality and is able to put problems to any team. The Andalusians moved very well on the transfer market during this summer break.
Prediction Today: Both teams score – YES
