Champions League finalists Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will meet again in the German Supercup at Dortmund’s Westfalenstadion on Saturday
, two weeks before the start of the Bundesliga season.
Dortmund are likely to be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Jakub Blaszczykowski. Guardiola will miss flamboyant winger Ribery and first choice keeper Neuer. New signing Goetze hasn’t recovered yet from his lenghty injury.
It will be repeat of last season CL final. Guardiola has become a coach of Bayern after their greatest season in years. It will be very difficult to repeat it but Guardiola loves to win titles. He has won 14 of 19 possible titles in his four years at Barcelona. He won’t hesistate to win more with Bayern.
Dortmund has issues with unhappy Lewandowski, they have sold Fillipe Santana to Schalke, Mario Götze to Bayern, Leonardo Bittencourt to Hannover, Moritz Leitner is on load with VFB Stuttgart and released Patrick Owomoyela. Their biggest sings are out from this match : Henrikh Mkhitaryan injury + Aubameyang flu.
I belive that changes made in Dortmund can have big impact on their results in the beggining of the season. I feel they will need more time to adjust to new players and to create team spirit again. Bayern on the other hand have almost the same squad with big stars – they are favourites on paper to snatch a win in this one and i feel the same so i recommend mid stake on Bayern and chance to take their first trophy for Guardiola.
