Bayern Munich regained the DFL-Supercup after recovering from letting a two-goal lead slip to defeat Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena.

Bavaria has not been a happy hunting ground for BVB of late, meaning it was no great surprise to see them fall behind after 17 minutes.

A devastating and swift counter-attack saw Bayern break and within four passes, Corentin Tolisso had snuck a shot past Marwin Hitz.

He was beaten again before half-time when a cross from Alphonso Davies was headed in at the back post by Thomas Müller, only for Julian Brandt to quickly respond and pull one back.

And Dortmund stunned the hosts to level after half-time when Erling Haaland finished calmly when played through – making up for an awful Thomas Meunier miss moments before.

But their good work came up short when Bayern found a late winner as Joshua Kimmich capitalised on a bad mistake from Thomas Delaney in midfield.

The Bayern man still had work to do when he somehow improvised a finish with the ball behind him as he lay prone on the ground after his initial shot was saved.

It was a goal worthy of delivering any trophy.
