Bayern Munich vs Sevilla
UEFA Super Cup
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Puskas Arena, Budapest.
The Super Cup is a traditional match played between the winners of the Champions League and Europa League from the previous season. The 2020 Super Cup will come around quickly due to the fact the finals of the major European competitions in the 2019/20 campaign were delayed.
However, it means fans can already get excited about the upcoming Super Cup fixture between Bayern Munich and Sevilla. The match was originally scheduled to be played at the Estádio do Dragão in Porto but has since been switched to the Puskás Aréna, Budapest. The game will take place on the 24th of September and there is the possibility of some fans being allowed inside the stadium to support the teams, which is great news.

Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Head-to-head
Interestingly, even though these two teams participate in European competitions all the time, there were only two previous head to head meetings.
Those matches were in 2018 in UEFA Champions League playoffs. Sevilla lost the home leg 1-2 FT, while duel at Allianz Arena ended without a winner and without goals.
Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Prediction
Bayern Munich are the undisputed favorites heading into this game. The Bavarians have the quality, and more importantly, they have been acting as a coherent unit under Hansi Flick. So, we do expect the German giants to once again dominate their opposition, and a comfortable 3-0 victory could be on the horizon this midweek.
