Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich meet in the DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga) Supercup at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday evening.
Only two points separated Dortmund from the German champions Bayern last season and the team from the Ruhr led the table for much of the season.
It’s also been a positive summer in the transfer market for Dortmund, with them making several astute additions to their squad in the likes of Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz and Julian Brandt. They also brought back their former captain Mats Hummels from Bayern, so this will be a very early re-union for the defender.
There’s also been some decent transfer activity at Bayern, with their defence bolstered by the big-money additions of Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard. Further forward, they’ve also signed Germany youth international striker Fiete Arp.
