Borussia Dortmund - Bayern Munchen pick

Featured Comment

Borussia Dortmund
They were extremely close to win the championship in Germany last season but at the end of the season they were surpassed by Bayern wich managed to beat them in the last match played togheter. Now they are attacking the first place again after winning every friendly match played this summer. Last time they managed to win the Supercup was in 2014, because at their last 2 presences here they were beaten by the same team they face today, Bayern.

They've spent over 100 million euro this summer to buy players like Hummels, Thorgan Hazard, Schulz, Brandt and Alcacer. In exchange for that they sold Isak, Rode and Diallo.Brand, Burki, Hazard and Morey will miss this match because of the problems they have with their health.

Borussia Dortmund possible lineup (4-2-3-1): Hitz – Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels, N. Schulz – Witsel, Dahoud – Sancho, Reus, Bruun Larsen – Götze.

Bayern Munchen
They had an excellent season last year after winning both the championship and the cup. Now they are again big favorites to win the Supercup again but this will be a though match especially because they are playing away. They had some good training matches this summer beating teams like Real Madrid or Ac Milan.

They paid over 115 million euros to buy Lucas Hernandez and Pavard but unfortunately they lost 4 good players, Hummels, Ribery, Robben and Friedl. Martinez and Gnabry are both injuried and will not be available for this match while Hernandez still has to train because he's not ready to play yet.

Bayern Munchen possible lineup(4-1-4-1): Neuer – Kimmich, Süle, J. Boateng, Alaba – Thiago – Goretzka, Sanches, Müller, Coman – Lewandowski.

In the last years we've seen a ton of spectacular matched between this teams and most of them ended with at least 3 goals scored. Both Borussia and Bayern are teams focused on offense wich they proven last season in Bundesliga because this were the teams with most scored goals.

Given the fact the rivality between this two and their history in the previous meetings its hard to belive that this will be a match with a low number of goals scored.

My pick for this match is over 2.5 goals.
