Bartra miss hands Bayern German Super Cup

Bartra miss hands Bayern German Super Cup

Bayern have now won the Super Cup on six occasions, while Dortmund have won the trophy five times.

The new German video review ran into trouble on its first serious test but despite the embarrassment officials insist it did not decide the Bayern Munich win over Borussia Dortmund in Saturday's Super Cup.

Dortmund defender Wukash Pishchek scored an own goal, and the match went into a penalty shootout, where Bayern's goalie Sven Ulreich managed to save 2 penalties, handing Bayern the victory, and their 6th Supercup title.

Hosts Dortmund ensured a bright start into the clash as Javi Martinez' turnover invited Christian Pulisic to break the deadlock from close range in the 12th minute.

Bayern's Carlo Ancelotti says a decision on Renato Sanches' future will be made before September.

"As I said, we have to be careful with him", the 53-year-old added.

Carlo Ancelotti's side entered the match off the back of a hard pre-season, but Lewandowski is confident that his team "will be ideal in a few months".

"We started the game very well, then we lost the thread, but we really moved through to the halfway point", the Turkey worldwide told Dortmund's official website.

Bayern twice in the course of the match we were behind, that did not stop the defending champion Germany to spoil the debut of Peter BOS as head coach of "Borussia" D.

Four more successful penalties followed before Ulreich produced another magnificent save to deny Marc Bartra and hand Bayern a record sixth German Supercup title.
