In the Super Cup between Bayern Munich and Sevilla, Ivan Rakitic felt goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was the difference as the Bundesliga champions claimed a 2-1 win after extra time.

Javi Martinez, a Bayern substitute, left Sevilla midfielder Rakitic praising Neuer’s display scoring a 104th-minute winner.

“It’s disappointing, but that’s football,” the former Barcelona star told Sky Germany.

“We saw how important Neuer is to them tonight. We had two perfect opportunities to go forward, but he stopped them. So we gave away a ridiculous corner and they scored.”

“We should be proud of how we played against the best team in Europe, however, and we feel well prepared for the season in the league.”
