Record German League and Cup winners Bayern will also be the most prosperous group when it has to do with the Supercup with seven names, two over their closest rivals in Dortmund.
Bayern who chased Dortmund to nearly all the season clinched the title on the last matchday using a 5-1 drubbing of Eintracht Frankfurt beating a nearly nine-point deficit. Something Die Borussen will probably be seeking to avenge.

BAY vs DOR Team News:
- Bayern has Procured the services of World Cup-winning full-backs Luca Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard along with Germany youth international striker Fiete Arp.
- Bayern’s player of the year Serge Gnabry is doubtful because of a muscle strain while Luca Hernandez also faces an examination against time to reach match fitness following his later cruciate ligament operation.
- With Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben inaccessible for choice after nearly a decade and Serge Gnabry’s fitness still doubtful, Thomas Mueller could see himself playing on the right rather than the number 10 spot he occupied for the majority of last season.
- The summer has seen a recurrence of former skipper Mats Hummels back to Dortmund along with a flurry of sexy young prospects such as Julian Brandt, Thorgan Hazard, and Nico Schulz.
- But, Julian Brandt will probably be absent due to an adductor muscle strain whilst Dortmund’s number one Roman Burki may even sit out because of a knee injury.
- Thorgan Hazard’s participation remains skeptical after he arrived first in Dortmund’s 4-1 pre-season win over Udinese.
