Traditionally the curtain-raiser to the continental football season, the Super Cup has taken something of a backwards step in terms of prestige in recent seasons, but it doesn't mean we are not going to give you some good Bayern vs Sevilla predictions.
The Super Cup match is a fantastic way to get some early season silverware in the cabinet, and you can rest assured that both Bayern Munich and Sevilla will want to get their hands on the trophy when they meet at the Puskas Arena in Budapest on September 24.
1. Bayern vs Sevilla - Preview and Predictions
Bayern, as you may recall, were so impressive in winning the Champions League, defeating PSG in the final, and to be honest they have been awesome in 2020 full stop ever since Hans-Dieter Flick took over as head coach.
Sevilla, meanwhile, did what they have a habit of doing: winning the Europa League, defeating Inter Milan in the final to get their hands on the trophy for the fourth time in recent memory.
There has barely been a minute of football played sine in Europe’s top leagues, and so the Super Cup will see these two teams looking to pick up where they left off in the 2019/20 campaign.
But who will do so in the ultimate style? Our Bayern Munich vs Sevilla predictions aim to find out.
2. Betting Odds for Bayern vs Sevilla
The Super Cup 2020 odds have been revealed, and perhaps unsurprisingly the bookies make the German champions their favourites to lift the trophy. So, in the Bayern vs Sevilla odds we can wager on Bayern at really favourable odds, while Sevilla is seen as a sure underdog – but, of course, these ratings relate to the 90 minute market.
If the game is a draw at the final whistle, then bets placed on the ‘to lift trophy’ market in the Sevilla vs Bayern betting odds will become relevant. Here, the German side is still a sure favourite.
3. Sevilla vs Bayern - Betting Predictions
If Bayern Munich and Sevilla played each other on any given week we would undoubtedly bet on the German team to win, and so there seems to be no obvious reason to veer away from that strategy despite this game being played for the Super Cup 2020.
Bayern have been pretty much unstoppable since the turn of the year, and as well as romping away to the Bundesliga title they also added a long-awaited Champions League to their trophy cabinet too.
But not just that, take a look at the teams they beat in the knockout phase and the scorelines: they defeated Chelsea (7-1 on aggregate), Barcelona (8-2), Lyon (3-0) and PSG (1-0). In some of those games, if they were a boxing match the referee would have stopped the contest!
It’s not a surprise that they have been quiet in the transfer window, and despite losing Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic back to their parent clubs they have brought in the exciting Leroy Sane, who is chomping at the bit after almost a year out with injury. In that sense, Bayern have actually gotten stronger this summer.
Should we be so hasty to write off Sevilla’s chances? They were excellent in the knockout stage of the Europa League, defeating Roma, Wolves, Manchester United and Inter Milan 3-2 in that pulsating final, and that really is a fine record.
When you compare the Spaniards’ performances in the Europa League and La Liga, it’s clear that they really seem to favour these knockout style games. Why? Who knows, but it gives them a chance here.
They have sold or released a handful of ageing squad players, and in their stead come the experienced Ivan Rakitic plus Suso and Oscar Rodriguez from AC Milan and Real Madrid respectively – it will be interesting to see how quickly they can settle.
In short, many will write off the Spaniards in their Super Cup 2020 betting tips, but don’t forget that this is a team with an impeccable record in this style of football.
4. Bayern vs Sevilla Betting Tips
Given that they have barely lost a game since the start of 2020, it would be crazy to bet against Bayern here. And actually, if you move fast you can get interesting odds for the Germans to win – that has to be the best of our Bayern vs Sevilla betting tips. But we have to give Sevilla a chance in this game, such is their record in knockout football, and so maybe Both Teams to Score is also a play at odds available in the table.
