A kind of risky bet after the drop of PSG's squad for the upcoming match. I still believe that they play much better than Lens, but won't be surprised if we see a late drama with a draw or maybe even a victory from the home team!
This Thursday in Budapest, two best teams in Europe will fight: Bayern - the European champions and Sevilla - the winners of the Europa League. Bayern is heading into the game following a major 8-0 win over Schalke in the first leg of the Bundesliga. Meanwhile, Sevilla's opening match in La Liga has been postponed. The German team have won each of their last 22 matches and have an unbeaten streak of 31 matches. Bayern last lost back in December 2019 when they were beaten 2-1 by Borussia Monchengladbach. Bayern have scored three or more goals in seven of their last 10 matches.
Sevilla have not played in competition since beating Inter in August, but they did have a friendly against Levante. The Spaniards have scored in each of their last six matches. In their last 32 matches, Sevilla have not scored in just three matches. One of the most successful teams in the Europa League, Sevilla will play in the Super Cup for the sixth time. Of their previous five, they managed to win only one - beating Barcelona 3-0 in 2006. It will be the second time they will face a non-Spanish team. Given the high performance of both teams, I think there will be a lot of goals, but Bayern will win.
Leicester City and Arsenal will face off in the third round of the English Football League Cup. Arsenal started the season with a 3-0 win over Fulham, followed by a less convincing home win over West Ham. Leicester also kicked off their season by beating West Bromwich. This was followed by a 4-2 home win over Burnley. Leicester is unbeaten in their last three games against Arsenal.
Given the number of matches played by both teams and the density of games, there is a chance that the teams will not field their star players. I guess Leicester will win.
