Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund to clinch DFL Super Cup. They had suffered a shock defeat in the Bundesliga at the weekend.
Bayern Munich got back to winning ways after surviving a Borussia Dortmund comeback to clinch the German Super Cup on Wednesday.
The Champions League holders had been humbled 4-1 by Hoffenheim on Sunday but took the lead through Corentin Tolisso’s close-range finish before Thomas Muller doubled their advantage with a header.
But Dortmund fought back with Erling Haaland teeing up Julian Brandt before scoring himself in the 55th minute to level the scores.
Bayern were not to be denied, though, and Joshua Kimmich hit the winner eight minutes from time in odd circumstances, deflecting the ball home after his initial shot had been pushed out by Dortmund ‘keeper Marwin Hitz.
The result means Bayern have already picked up two trophies this season, adding the German Super Cup to the European Super Cup they secured with an extra-time win over Sevilla last week.
