BAY vs SEV Dream11 Prediction: Bayern Munich and Sevilla meet in the UEFA Super Cup match-up that sees the winners if the Champions League take on the winners of the Europa League to take the crown of the best club in Europe. Bayern Munich have been playing some extremely good football in the Bundesliga and Champions League alike. They beat Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals, Lyon 3-0 in the semis and Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the finals to win the cup. After their short break and losing a player like Thiago Alcantara later, Hansi Flick’s men carried on their brilliant form by demolishing Schalke 8-0 on the opening matchday, with goals for players like Leroy Sane, Muller and Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry bagging a hattrick. Sevilla also had a good season by finishing in the top 4 of the La Liga and winning the Europa League for a record sixth time beating the likes of AS Roma, Manchester United and Inter Milan. They are the most successful side in the competition but have only managed to win the Super Cup on one occasion (2006). Julen Lopetegui’s side have a massive task on their hands if they want to change that stat.

Bwin have heavily touted Bayern Munich to win with odds of 33/100 with Sevilla to win at 13/2. It isn’t quite common that the winners of the Europa League beat the Champions League in the Super Cup and Sevilla will need to play the game of their lives to beat this rampant Munich side. Sevilla have lost two of their key players in Sergio Reguilon and Ever Banega, whereas Bayern Munich only seem stronger despite losing midfield general, Thiago Alcantara, to Liverpool. They have signed Leroy Sane from Manchester City who had an excellent debut against Schalke 04. Hansi Flick will look to carry on their ruthless approach against Sevilla as well owing to their perfectly balanced attack. They have top utility players who can play well in multiple positions like David Alaba and Joshua Kimmich. Luis Ocampos will be up against Lucas Hernandez with Suso up against teenage sensation, Alphonso Davies, which will both be interesting battles to watch. Jules Kounde against Robert Lewandowski will be an audition of sorts for the Frenchman before his likely transfer to Manchester City. Julen Lopetegui had done well to beat Antonio Conte in the Europa League final and beating Bayern Munich will be a tasty addition to his repertoire. Check out our BAY vs SEV Dream11 Match Prediction
Robert Lewandowski – At the moment, Robert Lewandowski just can’t stop scoring. He was the top scorer last season with 55 goals and won 3 trophies to top off his stellar season. The Polish international kicked off this season in a brilliant manner with a goal and 2 assists against Schalke 04 on the opening day of the season. He will look to carry on with that form with another trophy at stake against Sevilla.
Luuk de Jong – The Dutchman was crucial to Sevilla in reaching this stage, scoring the winning goal against Manchester United in the semi-finals and scoring a brace in the finals against Inter Milan to win them their sixth Europa League title. He will look to keep his spot in the lineup and cause the Bayern defence some troubles from crosses.
Serge Gnabry – The 25-year-old has been in sensational form and built over last season’s 23 goals and 14 assists by scoring a hattrick on the opening day against Schalke. His brilliant partnership with Lewandowski has been a backline’s nightmare of late and with the likes of Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller around them, we can only expect their goal contributions to increase.
X-factors (differential picks)
Lucas Ocampos – Lucas Ocampos has been a regular starter for Sevilla since he signed for them from Marseille last season. He had a great start to life in Sevilla with 17 goals, 5 assists and a Europa League in the first season itself. He will be up against Lucas Hernandez which will be a challenge but not one that the Argentinian will shy away from.
Leroy Sane – The new signing from Manchester City, Leroy Sane, kicked off his time at his new club with a goal and two assists as Bayern trampled Schalke. Sane already has a great link-up with German teammates Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry and Hansi Flick will be happy with the result after a good pre-season with The Bavarians.
Suso – Sevilla signed Suso on loan from AC Milan in the winter transfer window and made the deal permanent this window. Despite only scoring two goals for them, one of them was a crucial goal in the semi-finals of the Europa League. He will look to make this season different and strike-up a partnership with the likes of Luuk de Jong and Lucas Ocampos in the coming season to begin a top 4 charge early on in the La Liga after wrapping up an early trophy.
