Super Cup 2019 Dortmund – The first competitive game of the German football kicked off on Saturday night in the West Falen Stadion. It was the Super Cup final between the two competitive rivals, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund was lacking Roman Buerki, Julian Brandt, Mateu Morey as well as Matts Hummels in the game whereas Bayern Munich pretty much played a full-strength squad only with the exclusion of Serge Gnabry. The first half started with Dortmund having the first few minutes on the ball and a very big chance that Neuer saved which could potentially have been the opener for the game. After that chance it was the Bayern show, they were passing and moving the ball really well.

Coman was very good with his feet on the wing and was constantly trying to cut the ball in and find the pass to Lewandoski. Kimmich was also really good on the other flank as he too was pushing really hard and trying to chip in crosses. Leon Goretzka had a lot of the ball as he tried to link up everybody and took a few chances himself. Multiple times Bayern came close to scoring but Marwin Hitz had other ideas in his mind and he made a triple save to Deny, Goretzka, and Lewandowski as the lead. The first half ended with a scoreline 0-0 and Bayern being the much better side. Dortmund took the kick-off for the second half and Paco Alcacer out of nowhere produced an excellent low strike towards the corner of the net beating Manuel Neuer and giving the match its first goal.

Neuer was furious at his defense about giving him ample space and time to place his shot. After going down by one goal, Bayern tried to push even further for the equalizer but unlike the first half, Dortmund was actually more organized and could defend in a more systematic way. Omer Toprak did an excellent job pocketing Lewandowski the entire game. Jadon Sancho’s solo run and finish at the end gave Dortmund a cushion of 2 goals and by that time it was sealed that Dortmund is going to start this season with an upper hand over the Bavarians. Borussia Dortmund will have to repeat performances like these if they want a shot at the Deutschermesiter.
