Bayern’s winning streak continues with Super Cup title

Javi Martinez is Bayern Munich’s Mr. Super Cup. Seven years after scoring an extra-time goal to help Bayern win their last UEFA Super Cup, Martinez netted the winner in the 104th minute as the German club beat Sevilla 2-1 in the European curtain raiser in a stadium partially filled with fans. Europa League champions Sevilla took an early lead when David Alaba fouled Ivan Rakitic and Lucas Ocampos converted the 13th-minute penalty. Champions League winners Bayern leveled when Leon Goretzka hammered in a ball expertly cued up for him by Robert Lewandowski in the 34th. Bayern lifted a fourth trophy in three months after the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League.
