Borussia Dortmund beat FC Bayern Munich to take Super Cup honours and partial revenge

Bayern showed plenty of attacking intent without reward in an evenly matched first half as Arjen Robben, Thiago Alcantra and Mario Mandzukic were kept at bay by Dortmund's defence. At the restart Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp made a straight switch in midfield, Sven Bender replaced by Sebastian Kehl.

Dortmund: Borussia Dortmund exacted partial revenge on Bayern Munich for their Champions League final defeat with a 4-2 win in a gripping German Super Cup encounter on Saturday.

Dortmund, undone 2-1 at Wembley and distant runners-up to champions Bayern in the Bundesliga, deprived new Bayern coach Pep Guardiola of his first piece of silverware and inflicted his first loss since the former Barcelona boss took over from Jupp Heynckes.

The home side took a sixth-minute lead, largely due to a mistake by Bayern keeper Tom Starke, who after a poor clearance was unable to keep out Marco Reus's diving header.
