Bayern are heavy favourites for this European title showpiece, and Sevilla have it all to do in trying to quell them in Budapest.
UEFA Super Cup 2020/21
Date: Thursday September, 24th
Kick-off: 20:00 pm
Venue: Puskás Aréna
Bayern Munich have started the new season in pretty much the same vein they finished the former, thrashing Schalke 04 8-0 last weekend as they geared up for this match.
Having conquered every of their challengers en route to winning the Champions League title last term, a victory which landed them a spot in this fixture, the Bavarians will look to add the Super Cup to their collection and are very much the fancied side to do so.
Sevilla, for the fourth time in seven years, won the Europa League title last season to get here, brushing aside elite sides including Roma, Manchester United and Inter Milan along the way.
The lack of a competitive warm-up game leading up to this one should be concern for the Spanish side, with the departure of talismanic playmaker Ever Banega also creating a void.
However, the return of Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona is a good one for them, but it remains to be seen if they curtail the usually rampant Bayern.
Tanguy Nianzou is ruled out of this game for Bayern with injury, though Dieter Hansi Flick could have named the same team that beat Schalke last time out.
David Alana is still struggling with a muscle injury while Kingsley Coman is still out with Covid virus.
Sebastien Corchia is unavailable for Sevilla due to a knee injury.
Head to Head
This is the first meeting between these two sides since Bayern edged their 2017/18 Champions League quarter-final meeting 2-1 on aggregate.

Bayern should have little problems emerging from this game as winners, if their awe-inspiring form is anything to go by. They are 3/10 to secure a victory but you can back them on the Halftime/Fulltime market with a draw after the first 45 minutes before a late second half flurry sees them cart home the ultimate prize. That’s a decent 16/5 for odds.
Thomas Muller is 7/5 to find the net at anytime, and we’re backing the German to play a crucial role in the final third for his side.
