Joshua Kimmich scored a late winner as Bayern Munich claimed their fifth trophy of the calendar year, edging past Dortmund to the sword to claim the DFL-Supercup at the Allianz Arena.
Alphonso Davies operating as a left-winger, played his part in the opener and his beautiful cross laid on Bayern’s second as Thomas Muller took advantage of poor defending to head past Dortmund’s goalkeeper Marvin Hitz.
Bayern was looked in total control, but Julian Brandt’s first goal since January gave Lucien Favre’s charges hope six minutes before the interval.
Hans-Dieter Flick’s side lost their way at the start of the second-half and after Thomas Meunier lost a glorious chance. Dortmund drew level in the 55th-minute courtesy of Erling Haaland’s clinical finish after a pass from Thomas Delaney.
Haaland will reflect on a huge missed opportunity before he was taken off as he was denied by a world-class Manuel Neuer save.
It’s a chance Dortmund will regret as Kimmich won the tie in the 82nd-minute, hooking the ball past Hitz after seeing his initial shot saved following a Delaney slip while in possession.
The victory comes just six days after their UEFA Super Cup triumph complements Bayern’s Champions League, Bundesliga, and German Cup titles in 2020.
