On Sunday, Bayern Munich completed the club’s second ever treble when Kingsley Coman headed home the winning goal to beat Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League. Now, due to that successful mission, the Bavarians have qualified for the greatest prize of them all.
That’s right: It’s time for the UEFA Supercup.
Bayern have earned the right to play for UEFA’s most prestigious award against the winners of this year’s Europa League. As what feels like an annual occurrence these days, Sevilla is the club that won the UEL this year, of course.
The match is currently scheduled to be held on September 24 at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest, Hungary. Late last week, it was announced that UEFA was considering allowing a small number of fans into the stadium as a trial-run.
Bayern will be looking for their second win in the competition, having won it last back in 2013. The Bavarians are tied for the second most losses in the Supercup with three (1975, 1976, 2001).
(Of course, the UEFA Supercup doesn’t ACTUALLY matter; however, it’s a trophy, and Bayern Munich is all about winning trophies.)
