Borussia Dortmund defeat Bayern Munich in the DFL Super Cup 2019. Two weeks away from the Bundesliga Kick-off, Borussia Dortmund host arch-rivals Bayern Munich for the DFL Super Cup 2019. While Bayern Munich are bursting with confidence after clinching the Bundesliga title and the DFB Cup last season, the Black and Yellow won all their pre-season games and show great potential.
Very Tense First Half
It didn’t take Marco Reus more than 2 minutes to bring danger to Manuel Neuer’s goal. After a quick counter and a very accurate setup by Raphael Guerreiro, BVB’s captain was very close to scoring the first goal. While Borussia Dortmund relied mainly on quick counters, Bayern Munich tried to dominate the game through possession.
A few dangerous counters from Borussia Dortmund under Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho were very threatening to Nico Kovac’s men. Axel Witsel and Julian Weigl showed great tempo control in the midfield. Manuel Akanji played a very important role in keeping the backline balanced in the presence of a Robert Lewandowski. The first half ends 0-0.
Jadon Sancho Does some Magic
Despite losing possession several times in the first half, Jadon Sancho showed a great spirit and led the team to a glorious win. With the start of the second half, Jadon Sancho dribbles through five Bayern players setting up Paco Alcacer so fires the ball past Manuel Neuer making it 1-0 for BVB. As a consequence, the yellow wall burst with joy and Bayern Munich players got very angry.
A few attempts by Robert Lewandowski and his teammates were dangerously close to equalizing if it wasn’t for Marwin Hitz’s saves. In the 69th minute, Jadon Sancho runs again from the right towards the goal and confidently strikes it in between Neuer’s legs, making it 2-0 for the host.
Joshua Kimmich displays frustration after kicking Jadon Sancho in the ankle in front of the BVB’s bench. The referee ends the game in the 94th minute, making Borussia Dortmund winners of the DFL Super Cup 2019, and starting the season on the best way possible.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
