Lewandowski out, Alaba in - Bayern start preparations for Sevilla
Friday evening's gala performance will be followed by the hard graft needed to win the first silverware of the new season! Three days after the spectacular 8-0 win over Schalke 04 in their Bundesliga season opener, FC Bayern started preparations for the UEFA Super Cup on Monday morning. The treble winners face Europa League winners Sevilla in the Puskás Arena in Budapest this Thursday.
Bayern remain hungry
On Friday evening, against a hopelessly outclassed Schalke, the team from Munich impressively showed that their hunger for success is still undiminished following an outstanding 2019/20 campaign. Their sights are now firmly set on lifting the fourth trophy of this exceptional year against Sevilla.

In the training session on Monday morning it was plain to see that Manuel Neuer and Co. are fired up for the next title. In an excellent atmosphere, there was again an enormous amount of energy in the session, and after warming up, the players concentrated on passing drills and match situations.
Load management training for Lewandowski
Striker Robert Lewandowski sat out the team session and underwent load management training instead. David Alaba, who was absent on Friday against Schalke due to muscular problems in his left thigh, was back on board.
