In a closely fought match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, Jurgen Klopp’s side won the 2013 German Super Cup today after defeating Pep Guardiola’s side 4-2 in front of a packed Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund were in control for most of the match, taking an early lead from a Marco Reus goal that capitalized on a goalkeeping mistake by Tom Starke, who palmed the ball into Reus’s path. Dortmund went into the dressing room at half-time with a narrow 1-0 lead.

In the second half, Bayern Munich bounced back after a well headed goal by Arjen Robben near the far post after Dortmund’s Kevin Grosskreutz failed the mark to Dutch left-footed wonder. But within minutes, Borussia Dortmund grabbed two quick goals to extend the lead to 3-1 before Bayern Munich’s Robben pulled another one back on a beautiful twist and turn to make it a thrilling finish. But with Pep Guardiola’s side pushing forward, Bayern Munich were caught on the counter attack as Marco Reus grabbed his second goal of the game to finish it 4-2 to Dortmund.

Here are the highlights of the goals:

    As super cups go, this one was quite good! Maybe there won’t be plain sailing for Pep’s Bayern after all.

  2. Ty says:

    Yes unbelievable! First competitive match and we already see weakness in Pep’s team that we did not think we would see all season. So many famous German players and coaches have predicted Bayern to go undefeated in the Bundesliga but there may be a chance that does not happen. Borussia Dortmund and Leverkusen will be strong again and their number 1 priority will be beating Bayern.

  3. Borussia DortMan says:

    Those scumbags in München wont know what hit them this year. Reus, Lewa, and silky Ilkay will carry us to #glory.

  4. Arjun Niranjan says:

    Hey Chris! I emailed in my article with my thoughts about this game and its implications. Hope you found it worth while. A lot to ponder about as Bayern fan. Too many warning flags raised about Pep.
