Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund 3-2 to lift German Super Cup.

The German champions added another trophy to their haul from last season when they got the better of their rivals Dortmund to lift the German Super Cup.

Joshua Kimmich scored the winning goal as Bayern Munich shrugged off concerns about fixture congestion to beat Borussia Dortmund 3-2.

Dortmund fought back from 2-0 down to level the score, before the two goalkeepers made the difference.

Bayern’s Manuel Neuer showed superb reactions to palm away Erling Haaland’s shot when one-on-one with the Norwegian striker.

Dortmund’s stand-in keeper Marwin Hitz could only parry Kimmich’s shot in the 82nd minute and the midfielder stretched to flick in the rebound while falling.

Bayern has played for five trophies since Coach Hansi Flick took charge in November and won them all, but all that success has made for more fixture congestion in the already packed 2020-21 season.

The win over Dortmund came just six days after another Super Cup, when Bayern beat Sevilla 2-1 in extra time in UEFA’s ceremonial season-opener.

For Bayern it was a morale-boosting recovery after losing 4-1 to Hoffenheim on Sunday to end a 32-game unbeaten run. It also marked the third win in a row against Dortmund.
