FC Bayern beat Sevilla 2-1 after extra-time in Thursday night's UEFA Super Cup. Bayern suffered an early setback when Lucas Ocampos converted a penalty, but Leon Goretzka scored the equaliser after half-time. With no goals to come in the second half despite Bayern's dominance, the contest went into extra-time, sub Javi Martínez' goal sealing the second UEFA Super Cup title in club history.

The Bavarians started with Manuel Neuer in goal and Benjamin Pavard, Niklas Süle, David Alaba and Lucas Hernández in a back four. Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich featured in a twin holding role behind Leroy Sané, Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry, with Robert Lewandowski up front. Corentin Tolisso replaced Sané midway through the second half, Martínez, Alphonso Davies and Jérôme Boateng coming on for Hernández, Goretzka and Alaba in extra-time.

Early setback, Leon's equaliser

The two sides felt each other out in the first ten minutes, but an early setback came when the Spanish side were awarded a penalty following Alaba's challenge on Ivan Rakitić, Ocampos converting. Bayern went looking for a reply but saw a number of moves thwarted by stray passing, Müller seeing an effort blocked before Pavard fired just wide.

Sevilla keeper Bono denied Lewandowski, but a goal was coming, and Goretzka netted the deserved equaliser, Lewandowski expertly controlling a Müller chip and setting up the Germany international. Sevilla had the ball in the back of the net for a second time, but the goal was ruled out for an offside position.

Dominant but unlucky

Neuer was called into action right after the restart, making a strong save against Luuk de Jong. Bayern had a goal disallowed upon VAR intervention, Lewandowski netting after fine interplay with Müller, but the Poland captain was marginally offside. Bono parried a Gnabry shot, Sané seeing the rebound blocked. Sané scored but referee Anthony Taylor ruled it out following slight contact between Lewandowski and a defender.

Bayern were dominant but saw a number of shots blocked, Bono denying Müller. Neuer made a crucial save in the closing stages, Youssef En-Nesyri running clear but seeing his shot palmed away, and the clash went into extra-time.

Javi seals it

Bayern again had Neuer to thank for keeping the scores level when he diverted an En-Nesyri effort onto the post. Martínez put Bayern ahead right after coming on, Bono parrying Alaba's effort from distance, the Spaniard heading home the rebound. Martínez had also played a crucial role in the 2013 Super Cup triumph, when his equaliser sent the match against Chelsea into penalties.

Süle saw his effort cleared off the line. Lewandowski fired just wide and miscued a lob over Bono in the second half, and Bayern deservedly sealed the first silverware of the season.

The Bavarians will be back in action on Sunday, when they travel to face Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.
