German Super Cup: Bayern Defeat Dortmund on Penalties


Bayern Munich grabbed their first major trophy of the 2017-18 season on yesterday, beating Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup after a penalty shootout. The match finished 2-2 in regulation time, and the spot-kicks finished 5-4.

Christian Pulisic gave BVB an early lead, but Robert Lewandowski tied things up shortly after. The second half was a close affair until Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished a great counter-attack to restore the lead.

The hosts seemed destined to win until Joshua Kimmich steered the ball into the net via Lukasz Piszczek. In penalties, Kimmich and Sebastian Rode missed to leave things tied at 3 after the fourth round, and Marc Bartra missed the decisive penalty, with Sven Ulreich making his second save.
