German Super Cup: Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund

German football fans can’t wait for the highly anticipated German Super Cup where Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will face each other on July 27th at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund.

Football fans in Germany will be purring for the start of the new season to get underway as it will be kicking off the pre-season with the annual German Super Cup for the fourth year running. However, this time it will not just be between the two best teams from Germany  (Bayern Munich – Bundesliga winners and Borussia Dortmund – Bundesliga runners up), but also arguably and for many people, the two current best teams on the planet. The 2012/13 football season was dominated by German football putting it back on the map with the Spanish and English league and that was largely down to the success of these two teams.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich said farewell to their retiring coach Juup Heynckes is the best fashion possible. The German giants won everything and had probably the best season in their history with a historic treble which included the Bundesliga, the German Cup and more importantly the UEFA Champions League throphy. In doing so, they re-wrote the record books on many occasions, winning fans along the way and made a serious claim to be considered as the best club team in the world. However, the 2012-13 season for Bayern Munich will always be remembered for their Champions League semi-final tie. Heynckes’ men dominated the two legged tie against Barcelona and sent the Catalan giants crashing out after thrashing them 7-0 on aggregate.

Borussia Dortmund

For Borussia, it was again another successful campaign under the young Jurgen Klopp. However, it was a case of being over-shadowed by their rivals Bayern and finishing second best both in Europe and the league. BVB finished second in the league but were a massive 25 points behind Munich and failed to create a real attempt of a title challenge. Like Bayern, Dortmund’s success for the 2012/13 campaign will be remembered for their achievements in the Champions League and in particular their semi-final triumph. Klopp’s side shocked the world after knocking out Mourinho’s Real Madrid over a two-legged affair – with the damage being done in the first home leg thanks to 4 goals from Robert Lewandowski. However, runner’s up was as good as it got once again for Dortmund as a last minute goal from Arjen Robben put Bayern’s name on the trophy.

So with a much anticipated Super Cup scheduled for the 27th July, will Bayern continue their dominance after the perfect season or can the underdogs Dortmund finally get some revenge and cause some frustration of their own?

No shows booked at the moment.
