In the match which was played at Signal Iduna Park, Bayern twice came from behind to level with Dortmund as the game ended 2-2 in regulation time.

Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich enter Saturday's title game with five trophies apiece, and whichever team wins will have the most victories in Super Cup history.

Joshua Kimmich saw his spot-kick stopped by Burki, but Bayern's backup Sven Ulreich saved penalties from ex-Bayern midfielder Sebastian Rode and Marc Bartra to prove the unlikely hero for the Bavarians.

Dortmund's lead lasted all of six minutes before Robert Lewandowski swept home from close range to equalise from an offside position against his former club.


Both sides created chances in the opening moments of the match but it was Dortmund who took the lead when United States global Christian Pulisic calmly slotted past second-choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich following a mistake at the back by Javi Martinez.

Bayern's Carlo Ancelotti says a decision on Renato Sanches' future will be made before September. It all went very fast, I can not say exactly what we did wrong. "When the season starts, we will be there". "But again, we should not have let the game go into the penalty shoot-out". We are Bayern Munich and can not afford so many defeats.

"We started the game very well, then we lost the thread, but we really moved through to the halfway point", the Turkey worldwide told Dortmund's official website. Unfortunately we conceded two goals, we weren't attentive then.
