Martinez Scores Extra-time Winner As Bayern Beat Sevilla To Win Super Cup

Posted by

It was the first time supporters were allowed to watch match and that happened to be in the 67,000-capacity Puskas Arena since the coronavirus pandemic forced the game into lockdown. The spectators witnessed a hard-fought encounter which saw Sevilla take the lead from the penalty spot on 13 minutes when Lucas Ocampos scored an outrageous “no look” penalty after Ivan Rakitic was bundled over by David Alaba to book a place in the 18-yard box.

To show that they are actually the holders the most expensive cup, Bayern equalised before the break, Leon Goretzka scoring from Robert Lewandowski’s superb touch, with both sides having opportunities to win after the break. Bayern, who last lost in December 2019, clinched victory with substitute Javi Martinez’s 104th-minute header after Sevilla keeper Yassine Bounou could only push out Alaba’s shot.
