Dortmund Win German Super Cup

Borussia Dortmund beat bitter rivals Bayern Munich 2-0 to clinch the Germany Super Cup on Wednesday night.

The match started at high tempo because of the high rivalry between the two teams, with former Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, adding some spice to the clash as he now dons the red and blue of Bayern.

The Pep Guardiola’s side were forced to shift their play with long diagonals, which Jurgen Klopp’s side were happy to deal with.

Javier Martinez heavy back passes early in the game nearly resulted in an own goal, but goalkeeper Manuel Neuer came to the rescue of the Spanish defender.

The opening half hour did not quite go according to plan for Bayern, while Dortmund were able to ruffle the Bundesliga champions' feathers and take the lead through Mkhitaryan

The were also dealt a blow as defender, Javier Martinez, had to make way for Dante after suffering an injury.

The match headed to the halftime break with Bayern behind.

Dortmund continued to dominate in the second half and were rewarded with the second goal as Aubameyang found the back of the in the 62nd minute following an assist from Piszczek. 

Lewandowski, playing against his former team, failed to make any impact, and had to deal with the disappointment of losing to his former teammates.
