Bayern were relentless against RB Leipzig and won the German Super Cup 5-3, in a game full of suspense, thanks to goals from Musiala, Pavard, Gnabry and… Sadio Mané’s first in the game official. Julian Nagelsmann’s men start the season with a first trophy.
First game and first trophy. Bayern were pushed late in the match and eventually won 5-3 at Leipzig on Saturday to offer their 10th German Super Cup.
The Bavarians had planned to seal the match when they returned to the locker room with the score 3-0, but that was without Leipzig’s spectacular comeback. A first official match for the two clubs, which also saw Sadio Mané’s first official goal for Bayern.
A one-sided first period
The German champions had activated the steamroller mode very early in the match and had opened the scoring very quickly through Jamal Musiala. The young midfielder was in charge of concluding an offensive action that stalled in the area without ever finding the nets. With a powerful shot at the entrance to the surface, he opened the scoring and launched the machine (1-0, 14th).
After Christopher Nkunku’s goal was disallowed for offside, the Bavarians take the break thanks to their summer signing: Sadio Mané. The Senegalese was projected along with Gnabry, who served him in his career in front of goal. He only has to push to sign his first feat in an official match under the Bavarian tunic (2-0, 31st).
Julian Nagelsmann’s men will return to the locker room with a good 3-0 lead, thanks to Benjamin Pavard’s goal at the end of the first half, which he finished off after Musiala retired from the penalty spot (3-0, 45th). A unilateral first half, where Bayern shot six times on goal, for four shots on goal and therefore three goals.
Dani Olmo’s entry changes the rules of the game
Back from the dressing room, Dani Olmo and André Silva enter and turn the tonic around. In a corner, Marcel Halstenberg jumps higher than everyone and manages to materialize the good start of the second half of RB Leipzig with a good header (3-1, 60th). A brief respite since in a Bavarian against, Müller projects and stumbles over Gulacsi, but Gnabry continues and signs the fourth goal (4-1, 66th).
Sadio Mané even thought of increasing the score with a very nice ball chopped into the Hungarian goalkeeper. But finally he is signaled offside (71st). After a tackle with both feet out in the area to Dani Olmo, Benjamin Pavard offers a penalty to Leipzig, who come back from 4-2 after the very good transformation of Christopher Nkunku (4-2, 77th).
Leipzig will have kept hope
A setback that will not change the score, as Sadio Mané is once again close to the double in the 80th minute. A double that the Senegalese is close to again at the end of the match when Kingsley Coman serves him, but he is (still) in an offside position (85th).
We thought the game was over, but André Silva jumped in and served Szoboszlai on the surface entrance. The Hungarian moves Dani Olmo to his left and finishes off with a sublime cross shot that revives the match (4-3, 89). Leipzig pushes again and is close to the feat in a center on the run from Dani Olmo that no one manages to cut (90 + 2º).
Leroy Sané to crucify Leipzig
Those from Telasco will be offered one last chance thanks to a handball by Lucas Hernández, who thought he was playing touch but took the ball before it crossed the line (90 + 5th). Leipzig will finally arrive to be crucified in a solo against Leroy Sané, who recovers a very long climb from Alphonso Davies before chaining the hooks against the young Spaniard Novoa-Ramos. He ended up fooling Gulacsi, who had stayed on his feet despite his dribbling (90 + 8th).
Thus, FC Bayern won the German Super Cup for the tenth time, further extending their own record. Bayern have lifted the trophy in each of the last three seasons, as only Bayern themselves managed to do between 2016 and 2018.
