Hansi Flick’s side became the first team in the history of Champions League football to lift the trophy having won every single game en route to the final as recently as August.
Sevilla, meanwhile, consolidated their position as the Europa League’s most successful side with a record sixth title, maintaining their 100 per cent record in finals.
At the aptly named Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary, these legends of the game lock horns for the 2020 Super Cup later this week.

David Alaba missed the club’s opener to the new Bundesliga season with a muscular injury but is back in the lineup this evening.
Julen Lopetegui, meanwhile, has already seen two of his main players leave the club, with Sergio Reguilon returning to Real Madrid after his fruitful loan spell before completing a permanent switch to Tottenham last week, and Ever Banega, who left this summer for Saudi Arabian side Al–Shabab.

Bayern Munich: The Bavarians did not have to wait long to see summer recruit Leroy Sane settle back into life in Germany, with the ex-Manchester City winger producing a masterclass against his former club Schalke over the weekend. Working explosively in tandem with Serge Gnabry, the speedsters cut through David Wagner’s beleaguered backline like a hot knife through butter and devastated the Ruhr district club, winning 8-0 to kick start their Bundesliga title defence. For his part in the rout, Sane helped himself to a goal and two assists, and Flick will be looking to his new recruit once more later this week to take on a Reguilon-less Sevilla.
Sevilla: There were a number of star players for Los Nervionenses last season but arguably the glue that kept the entire operation together was Banega. The Argentine’s experience, tenacity and heart bred life into Lopetegui’s side and kept them in contention until the final whistle. His departure will be felt at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, but Lopetegui will be hoping the homecoming of Ivan Rakitic can remedy Banega’s void. At 32, the ex-Barcelona midfielder returns to Sevilla with a fine collection of medals, both domestically and in Europe, and will add serious quality, creativity and experience to a midfield that will be deeply feeling the effects of Banega’s exit.
