SuperCup: Bayern vs BVB



Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund met for the first time this season in the German Super Cup when absolute champions Bayern faced their rivals Dortmund, finishing runners-up in the Bundesliga last season. This is the 21st of the Super Cup and the 8th encounter between these two teams to compete for the coveted trophy.

Hansi Flick's side are currently on a streak of 23 wins in all competitions - a new record for a club in Europe's top five leagues - and are aiming for a fifth in just over three months, after winning the Bundesliga, DFB Cup, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Super Cup since June. Lewandowski will reunite his former teammate Matt Hummels on the scoring mission for the Gray Lobster. Only the great Gerd Müller scored more goals in a Bundesliga season than Lewandowski last season, with 34 goals, the Polish striker won his 5th Torjägerkanone - 3rd in a row and for many hours more speak at Bayern as it became the first club to ever win every match en route to winning the UEFA Champions League, with a top spot in the Champions League scoring 15 goals in 10 continental matches. Bayern crossed out Robert Lewandowski on the bench less than 72 hours after winning the UEFA Super Cup thanks to an extra-time victory over Sevilla in Budapest. But after the home side lost 1-2, he turned to Lewandowski and Leon Goretzka in an attempt to stop the first loss since December, before Joshua Zirkzee hit his head on the wooden frame. This year will be Bayern's 14th appearance; Their previous 13 games generated 7 wins and six losses and have won each of their last three to put an end to a 3-year streak before losing 0-2 last year at Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund are making their 11th appearance, winning 6 and losing 4 of their 10 debut so far, their 2019 victory has ended a series of consecutive defeats, both at home to Bayern. Since the Munich side dominated the Bundesliga starting in the 2012/13 season, BVB has won three out of five meetings with the Super Cup. It means that Borussia currently dominate in Supercup Klassikers with 4 wins. Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have 2 goals in the Super Cup matches for Dortmund. Joshua Kimmich will give Dortmund a real challenge to Dortmund's less experienced rookie Jude Bellingham in the midfield.
