Muller becomes joint-most successful German player as Bayern win quadruple



Bayern Munich beat Sevilla 2-1 after extra time on Thursday to lift the UEFA Super Cup and complete a quadruple under coach Hansi Flick, in the first European game played with some fans in the stands since the sport returned amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Substitute Javi Martinez headed in the winner in the 104th minute after Europa League winners Sevilla had taken a 13th- minute lead through Lucas Ocampos’s penalty and Bayern levelled through Leon Gorezka in the 34th minute.

The Bavarians, now unbeaten in 32 consecutive matches, also won the domestic league and Cup double as well as the Champions League after Flick took over last November.
Their last defeat was in December, 2019.

The match was watched by 15,180 supporters inside the 67,000- capacity Puskas Arena, the first major European match to allow fans since the coronavirus pandemic forced the game
into lockdown.

Thomas Muller has become the joint-most decorated player in German history after Bayern’s UEFA Super Cup
final win over Sevilla .

Muller has now won 26 trophies at club level, which makes him the joint-most
successful player in Germany’s history alongside former team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Miller will be the most decorated player in Germany’s history if Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund in the DFL Supercup next Wednesday.
