Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich
German Super Cup
Date: Saturday, 5th August 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
It will be the clash between vulnerable giants in the final of the German Super Cup as two of the most famous teams in the country are set to take on each other this Saturday at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Peter Bosz is set to make his debut on BVB bench in an official match. The man who led Ajax to the Europa League final last year, however has a lot to think about ahead of the encounter with the Bavarians.
This can primarily be appealed to Borussia’s struggles with the efficiency in the final third as the team, failed to find the back of the net in subsequent losses to the likes of Espanyol and Atalanta in their last two friendlies.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have not been much better moving forward either given Der FCB have failed to find the target in four of their last five matches.
The most recent failures happened at Audi Cup where Bayern shockingly lost to both Liverpool and Napoli with the total goal difference of 0-5.

Der FCB have been much more successful historically winning 50 of 108 head to head encounters with bitter rivals.
