Dortmund See Off Bayern to Win German Super Cup

Written by Our Correspondent

Jadon Sancho grabbed a goal and an assist to inspire Borussia Dortmund to a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the DFL-Supercup, ending Die Roten’s recent dominance of the German season’s curtain-raiser.

Lucien Favre’s men looked the brighter and more imaginative of the two sides for much of the contest and their display – led by the excellent Sancho and Paco Alcacer – suggests the Bundesliga is set for another tight tussle at the top of the table.
