Teenage full-back Alphonso Davies missed Bayern’s season opener against Schalke through injury, but is expected to be available again for the Super Cup.

Leroy Sane enjoyed a near-perfect debut for Bayern in the win over Schalke, but Hennessey Flick may turn to Kingsley Coman – who scored the winner in the Champions League final – as Sane recovers from a long injury. Increasing the fitness of the match. -Close. Serge Gnabry will almost certainly start on the other wing, having scored a hat-trick last time out.

They haven’t lost a game since that defeat in January, and are currently on a 23-match winning streak in all competitions – last dropping points in February.

Los Palanganas ran out 3-2 winners against Levante in a friendly last week, but will still lack natural match sharpness heading into the Super Cup. And of all the matches where you can’t easily avoid it, this is one, unfortunately.

Die Roten will get a tough and physical matchup from Julien Lopategui, who will push them to the limit and make them work hard. His experience of grinding out results in big games shone through last season’s Europa League campaign, where he shut out Inter and Manchester United in similar fashion.

However, this likely won’t be enough. Bayern themselves are not at full fitness and are still capable of being beaten 8-0 in their first game of the season, which tells you all you need to know. It would be an interesting contest, but one that would end in victory for the Germans.

prediction: Bayern Munich 4-1 Seville
