Bet Live on the German Super Cup: Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern MunichPublished August 13, 2014 by Amir G
German football action kicks off as Bundesliga top teams Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich meet for German Super Cup opener today at 5pm UK time.
Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park hosts today's German Super Cup match between home team and Bayern Munich (5pm UK time). The Super Cup is an idea borrowed from other leagues, where the top two clubs from the prior season meet for a season opener. Indeed, these two are the top clubs of German football.
Dortmund Out for Revenge
Dortmund and Bayern met in May for the final of the 2013/4 German Super Cup when Bayern won 2-0 with goals by Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller. Unlike Bayern, Dortmund is going to be under pressure to win this game also given the fact that it takes place at home.
Coach Jurgen Klopp had to part with top striker Robert Lewandowski who moved to Bayern, but he was reinforced with Italy's Ciro Immobile, Mathias Ginter and Adrian Ramos. Dortmund's offense will be missing the injured Marco Reus. Dortmund was thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool earlier on Sunday in a pre-season friendly, so they have much to prove.
No Pressure for Bayern Munich
Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich is in top shape as displayed in the last season. The Bavarians are big favorites both for this season's Bundesliga competition and for the UEFA Champions League. One thing Bayern might be lacking today is players: Many of its players took part in the World Cup including a bulk of Germany's squad and Franck Ribery who is still out due to injury. It'll be interesting to see striker Robert Lewandowski who moved from the rival team to Bayern this year.
