UEFA Super Cup - Bayern Munich aet2-1 Sevilla - Thursday 24th September, 2020

Recommended Posts

What is the purpose of this game/cup?

it is different than a domestic super cup where the league winner plays the cup winner

On the European level, the champions league is well noted as being the top flight in continental club competition by:

1. winner of Europa qualifies for champions league 

2. lower place clubs in domestic league qualify for Europa League 

3. teams that get knocked out of champions league qualifying and playoffs get relegated to playing in the Europa League 

4. teams finishing 3rd in champions league get relegated to Europa League 

5 winner of champions league qualifying for FIFA club World Cup tournament  as Europe’s representatives 

If champions league is already identified as the champions of Europe, then why diminish this title with another cup?

Is the super cup just a cash grab? Cuz how much can they make in 1 game, that most Fans would Consider a friendly?

is there that much viewership to sustain this?  

its an extra game and travel for 2 clubs that already had a long season. 
FIFA has done away with the confederation cup, UEFA should probably do the same for the super cup.

This is probably one of the few reasons its still around this season.

"UEFA made 3,000 tickets available for the supporters of each team, with a reduced capacity of 30 per cent in the stadium.

The Super Cup will be used as a pilot to see fans return to venues amid the coronavirus outbreak."

Thomas Mueller goes so close to equalising, but his scuffed attempt at goal goes past the far post after he connected with Lewandowski's cross.

Bayern's Pavard has a great chance to score, but his powerful shot goes the wrong side of the far post.

Goretzka equalises. Got a knack of finding himself in the right positions around the edge of/just inside the box so many times. Nice finish.

Gnabry has a lovely shot saved by the Seville keeper and then Sane's rebound shot that was goal-bound is blocked by the Seville defender.

Sane puts the ball in the net for Bayern, but the goal is not allowed because of an alleged foul by Lewandowski in the build up play.

World class save from a world class goalkeeper, Neuer is the best in his position in the world. That breakaway from Seville was all due to a mistake by Alaba. He's not been at his peak since the issue with his contract came about.

Is that tournament happening this year?  
many other confederations haven’t completed their champions league season.

I don’t think so, but the new format is crazy. I think Madrid and us will be there alongside you representing Europe now. Why? Well because FIFA are a bunch of cunts.
