Martínez heads Bayern past Sevilla to win Super Cup

1 min read

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 opened the scoring, Lucas Ocampos beating Manuel Neuer from the spot after David Alaba had barged into Ivan Rakitic in the box.

Not that the early setback knocked Bayern off their strike. Leroy Sané saw a shot blocked before goalkeeper Bounou saved from Robert Lewandowski as the chances mounted.

Just after the hour mark, they were level. Lewandowski spun brilliantly in the box to lose his marker and receive an inch-perfect chipped cross from Thomas Müller. With a single touch, the Pole laid off to Leon Goretzka who, arriving late in the box, fired home a deserved equalizer as the half ended level.

Javi Martinez was in the right place at the right time to deliver the decisive goal in extra time.

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.
