Bayern Munich already looking too good for the Bundesliga

  Bayern Munich already looking too good for the Bundesliga BERLIN — On the day the FIFA president warned about a lack of competition in club soccer, Bayern Munich started the German league by scoring a whopping eight goals. The Bavarian club routed Schalke 8-0 Friday and it could have been more but for a slew of missed chances. After half an hour, Bayern was up 3-0. By then, it was only a matter of how many the team would score. “The Bundesliga did not provide many arguments at the start that it should definitely continue to be watched — at least not when Bayern Munich is playing,” Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel wrote. “The game was tediously boring.

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Javi Martínez is Bayern Munich's Mr. Super Cup.

Seven years after scoring an extra-time goal to help Bayern win its last UEFA Super Cup, Martínez netted the winner in the 104th minute Thursday as the German club beat Sevilla 2-1 in the European curtain raiser in a stadium partially filled with fans.

Martínez rose above a crowd of players to head in the rebound when Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou parried David Alaba's speculative shot.

"We have one goal" Bayern "hungry" for first title of the season in UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla FC Bayern have the chance to win their first silverware of the new season in the FCB are currently on a 22-match winning run and would add to last season’s remarkable trophy hall with a 23rd victory tonight.

Sevilla to win the Supercup . This isnt Schalke guys, Sevilla can actually defend and attack. The loss of Sergio and Banega was adequately dealt with, Acuna and Rakitić are superb players. @Pedagog hard time scoring? bruh. I can't imagine how Sevilla 's defenders will stop Bayern 's offense.

Bayern midfielder Thomas Müller hailed Martínez as “Mr. Super Cup,” recalling the 2013 goal which sent a game against Chelsea to a penalty shootout which Bayern won.

It could be one of Martínez's last games for Bayern after eight years and eight German league titles. Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told German media last month that the versatile defensive player was seeking to leave.

“When i play in a Bayern shirt I want to give everything, 100%, and I showed that today," Martínez told broadcaster Sky, leaving a question about his future open. "I just want to celebrate today with my colleagues, the whole team. Not so much because we have another game on Sunday (in the German league). Obviously if I am there on Sunday I will give everything.”

 UEFA wants to allow up to 20,000 spectators to the Supercup between Bayern and Seville and is increasingly criticized for this.

Sevilla won the Europa League/UEFA Cup for the sixth time in their history in 2020, extending their record as the most successful club in the Hansi Flick: “We have one goal: to win the UEFA Super Cup . It’ll be tough, but we know we’re capable of winning it. Sevilla have a great team and a very

Playing extra time was far from ideal for either team in a season which has started later than normal and will have a more congested calendar amid the coronavirus pandemic. For both Bayern and Sevilla it was the start of a run of four games in 11 days and came barely a month after Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final.

Europa League champion Sevilla took an early lead when David Alaba fouled Ivan Rakitic and Lucas Ocampos converted the 13th-minute penalty. Champions League winner Bayern levelled when Leon Goretzka hammered in a ball expertly cued up for him by Robert Lewandowski in the 34th.

Bayern was largely in control of the second half but saw two goals ruled out — one for offside, one for a shove by Lewandowski — and needed Neuer to save Youssef En-Nesyri's shot on the counterattack in the 87th minute.

The game was played with around 15,000 supporters in the Puskas Arena, around a quarter of capacity, as UEFA trialed a partial return of fans in time for the Champions League and Europa League group stages.

However, the recent rise in coronavirus cases across Europe — and Budapest in particular — made it a controversial move.

Around 800 out of the 2,100 tickets sold to Bayern fans were returned ahead of the game after politicians in the state of Bavaria warned fans against going to Budapest. Sevilla distributed around 500 tickets, meaning the vast majority of people in the stadium were Hungarian locals.

Social distancing rules were largely followed at the Puskas Arena, with fans mostly sitting in ones and twos with empty seats in between. However, travelling Bayern fans pushed to the front of their sector to watch the trophy presentation and stood shoulder to shoulder when the team came to celebrate in front of their stand. Only a few wore masks, which UEFA had said were obligatory “when social distancing cannot be respected.”

The international travel for Bayern and Sevilla fans also made the Super Cup an outlier. The main European leagues that have resumed with supporters, such as Germany and France, have restricted games to home fans so as not to encourage long-distance travel during the pandemic.

Bayern lifted a fourth trophy in three months after the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League, even if it was a largely symbolic prize. Sevilla has played four Super Cup games in the last seven years as a serial winner of the Europa League and lost them all.
