Bayern vs Dortmund DFL-Supercup Preview
The DFL-Supercup typically pits the prior season’s Bundesliga champion against the DFB-Pokal victors, but for the fourth time in seven seasons, Bayern claimed both titles, sending Bundesliga runners-up Dortmund into the match.
Bayern played its final pre-season friendly on Wednesday, falling to Tottenham Hotspur on penalties in the Audi Cup final at Allianz Arena.
“This tournament was a productive pre-season tournament,” head coach Niko Kovac said, according to FCBayern.com. “All four teams played attacking football and scored many goals. The spectators were treated to many good moves. At the moment I’m very satisfied, we still have a few more weeks to fine-tune our play. We contested the first half with a pretty young team, and the young players did a very good job.”
After falling into a 2-0 hole, the Bavarians got goals from 19-year-old Jann-Fiete Arp and 18-year-old Jonathan Davies in the 61st and 81st minutes, respectively, to even things up.
“The many young players did an outstanding job, hats off, a huge compliment to them,” goalkeeper Sven Ulreich said, per the team site. “Bayern can be proud to have these lads. The approach was different today, we wanted to save our energy a bit. Many of us played 90 minutes yesterday, so today’s line-up was different. But we played well once again and bounced back. We’re well prepared.”
Bayern opened their slate of pre-season friendlies with a loss to Arsenal, then bested Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Fenerbahçe before their meeting with Tottenham.
“I’m very happy with our pre-season campaign, and the team are in very good shape at the moment,” Kovac said, according to Bundesliga.com. “It will be an interesting game and we want to win it. We’re taking this game very seriously. Dortmund have strengthened and have been in pre-season longer than we have. It’ll be an intensive game. BVB will be our closest challengers again. We’ll need to be wide awake.”
Dortmund finished just two points shy of Bayern for the Bundesliga title in 2018-19. They acquired wingers Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard in the offseason, though the former has been ruled out for the Supercup and the latter’s participation is in doubt as both deal with injuries sustained in the pre-season.
“The Supercup carries great significance for all of us,” Dortmund captain Marco Reus said, per Bundesliga.com. “It’s a title, it’s important to make a good start to the season and to show our fans we want to win something. It is clear, though, that neither team is firing on all cylinders yet.”
