German Super Cup, The Pole, who set a Bundesliga record with 41 goals last season,

scored the game’s first goal in the 41st minute and added the game’s decisive third goal in the 74th minute,

after Dortmund’s Marco Reus had pulled one back.

Bayern have struggled to win any of their four preseason friendly,

and were beaten to a 0-0 draw at Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga’s opening match on Friday.

Nagelsmann stated, “I’d like to start hoarding titles.” “My predecessor and the players amassed a large fortune.”

Youssoufa Moukoko, 16, of Dortmund, believed he had scored but was called offside,

and Neuer made another fantastic save to deny Erling Haaland after Kingsley Coman flashed an effort just wide at the other end.

Before halftime,

Lewandowski broke the deadlock with a powerful header inside the left post after bursting through the middle to meet Serge Gnabry’s cross.

Bayern’s second goal came in the 49th minute, set up by Alphonso Davies and finished by Muller

after Lewandowski’s heel took the ball past goalkeeper Gregory Kobel.

In response, Haaland had a goal called out for offside, but Reus reignited the home crowd shortly after the hour mark.

Dortmund captain Bellingham laid the ball back for a beautiful curling shot inside the right post from outside the penalty area.

Dortmund‘s chances of a comeback shattered,

however, as Corentin Tolisso blocked Manuel Akanji’s attempted kick out, giving Lewandowski plenty of time to pick his place.

Robert Lewandowski was unmarked on the stroke of halftime to score a thunderous header and give Bayern the lead.

On a night when both clubs came together to mourn his namesake,

Gerd Muller, an error by Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel allowed Thomas Muller to tap into an empty net.

A fantastic strike from Borussia captain Marco Reus into the top corner gave the home supporters hope,

but a mistake from Manuel Akani allowed Lewandowski to score a brace and make it 3-1.

Dortmund booed off by the home crowd when the final whistle blew following a lacklustre performance.

Bayern Munich has won the first trophy of the season, and Julian Nagelsmann has won his first title as manager of the Bavarian giants.

Bayern led 1-0 at halftime, but Thomas Muller equalised early in the second half.

With a magnificent effort, Marco Reus made it 2-1, and the game was on.

However, Manuel Akanji gift Bayern a third goal when his ball was intercept by Corentin Tolisso

and dropped to Robert Lewandowski’s feet.

With 15 minutes left, he had all the time in the world to compose himself and make it 3-1,

effectively sealing the game.

Both teams were not at their best,

and both sets of players made clumsy blunders, with early season rust likely to blame.

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, comes out on top, winning the German Super Cup in 2021.
