"What the Supercup?" it's an annual competition in the Bundesliga between the team that won the Bundesliga and the team that won the DFB Pokal (german knockout tournament). Bayern won both of these, so they will be playing against second place team Dortmund. It's a friendly, but these teams are bitter rivals and never play friendly.

I'm a Bayern fan but they are without Neuer and I think that's going to make a major impact here. Starke will probably be playing and he's good, but not close to the level Neuer is and they're really going to need him against the likes of Dortmund who will be playing aggressively. Neuer's skills are what kept Dortmund from winning any matches against Bayern last season including the Champions League final.

That being said, Bayern haven't lost a match yet this pre-season and after subbing out their starters and putting in their B team (including Starke) against Barcelona they were able to keep their lead and keep Barca's B-team from scoring as well. I don't think we'll be seeing Dortmund's B team today though, this win will actually mean something to them.

Should be a cracker of a match. Shame I'm only going to see a few minutes of it.

Bayern 3 - 2 Dortmund

I'm hoping Bayern takes a win here, but I wouldn't put money on it without Neuer unless Bayern comes out and scores like crazy too. Dortmund is going to get around Starke.

Yep. Easily.

And that's what I was worried about. Starke came to Bayern to retire.....

So it's Germany's equivalent to England's Community Shield? It is also the curtain raiser for the German season, like in England?

Exactly :) First official match isn't until the 9th, but this match pretty much starts it all off.

Damn that was a nice save for Dortmund. I thought that was in for sure.

Was anyone else in the US having problems with the feed, and then it appeared GOL switched feeds a few minutes ago? Wondering if it was a cable problem or a feed problem.
