Champions League winners Bayern Munich and Europa League champions Sevilla kick off the new European football season. Watch the UEFA Super Cup live.
Football fans in India will have to stay up late on Thursday night to witness the start to the new European club football competition.
The UEFA Super Cup is the traditional curtain-raiser of the European football season, where the winners of last season’s Champions League and Europa League face each other.
This time, the match is between 2019-20 Champions League winners Bayern Munich and 2019-20 Europa League champions Sevilla at the Puskas Arena stadium in Budapest, Hungary. The Bayern vs Sevilla Super Cup match will be available on live streaming in India.
The delay in the football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic means that there is just a one-month gap between the end of the last European football season and the start of the new one.
Bayern Munich lifted the UEFA Champions League title last month after a 1-0 win over French club Paris St.Germain.
Sevilla on the other hand won a record sixth UEFA Europa League title with a thrilling 3-2 win against Italian team Inter in the final.
Both Bayern Munich (2013) and Sevilla (2006) have won the UEFA Super Cup once before.
The Bayern vs Sevilla fixture has been played twice before, in the quarter-finals of the 2018 UEFA Champions League.
Bayern Munich won the first encounter 2-1 while the second match was a 0-0 draw. Sevilla will be looking to nab a first win against the mighty Germans come Thursday night.
