Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic

Bayern Munich vs Sevilla: Go with another Super Cup stalemate

Kick-off: 2000, 24/09/2020

Stadium: Puskas Arena

TV: BT Sport

Five of the last seven UEFA Super Cup matches have gone to extra-time and Sevilla will be keen to give Bayern Munich a tough work-out in Budapest.

The Europa League winners drew with fellow Spaniards Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid a year later, before losing out in an additional half an hour.

They are again huge underdogs at Puskas Arena but 9/2 for a stalemate after 90 minutes is our initial Bayern Munich vs Sevilla prediction.

A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds

Obviously, Bayern are worthy favourites following such a superb campaign which saw them run away with the Bundesliga title and then conquer the rest of Europe.

Hansi Flick’s side crushed Chelsea 4-1 over two legs and made a real statement of intent by blitzing Barcelona 8-2 in a one-off quarter-final.

Lyon were brushed aside 3-0 in the semis before PSG were edged out 1-0 in a decider which failed to live up to expectations.

FC Hollywood have already hit the ground running this term by thrashing Schalke 8-0 in their Bundesliga opener.

Serge Gnabry hit a hat-trick in that contest after scoring four times in the final five games of last season.

The former Arsenal trainee appeals at 4/1 to break the deadlock on Thursday night from the Bayern Munich vs Sevilla odds.

Last Bayern line-up: Neuer, Sule, Pavard, Boateng, Hernandez, Kimmich, Goretzka, Gnabry, Lewandowski, Sane, Muller.

A Look At Sevilla’s Betting Odds

Sevilla finished a fine fourth in La Liga, well adrift of Real and Barca but level on points with Atletico Madrid after winning five of their last six fixtures.

Los Rojiblancos then showed all their trademark battling qualities to lift the Europa League trophy for a fourth time in seven years.

Roma were beaten 2-0 and Wolves were shaded 1-0 before Julen Lopetegui’s side came from behind to see off Manchester United 2-1 in the semis.

Luuk de Jong’s double helped Sevilla to overcome Inter Milan 3-2 in the decider, but it is the all-round effort, determination and energy which makes this team hard to beat.

In fact, they have gone 21 matches without tasting defeat, including La Liga draws versus Atletico and Barca.

The lack of a competitive warm-up game is a concern, along with the departure of talismanic playmaker Ever Banega.

However, the arrival of Ivan Rakitic should help to fill that void and Lopetegui will again have his side fired up for another display of guts and guile.

The head coach said: “In truth, we are up against the best team in the world at the moment, but we don’t want to just roll over.”

Bayern were held to a draw by Chelsea when last in this event seven years ago and may again struggle to shrug off stubborn foes in Budapest.

It was certainly close when these clubs met in the Champions League quarter-finals two years ago, with a narrow 2-1 win for Bayern in Spain (via an own-goal and a deflected effort) followed by a goalless draw in Germany.

We’re adding 11/1 for a 1-1 stalemate in normal time to our Bayern Munich vs Sevilla betting tips.

Last Sevilla line-up: Bono, Kounde, Navas, Diego Carlos, Reguilon, Ocampos, Banega, Moreno, Fernando, Suso, De Jong.
