Rakitic: We Had Two Perfect Opportunities, but Neuer Stopped Them

Ivan Rakitic felt Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer made all the difference in the Super Cup between Bayern Munich and Sevilla.

“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,” the former Barcelona star told Sky Germany.

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

But even as the Bundesliga champions claimed a 2-1 win after extra time, Rakitic is proud of his team: “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.”

“It’s disappointing, but that’s football,” he added.
