German champions Bayern Munich have retained the German Super Cup after they defeated rivals Borussia Dortmund 5-4 on penalties at the Signa Iduna Park.
The hosts took the lead through American international forward Christian Pulisic before Robert Lewandowski equalised for Bayern.
Dortmund regained the lead through star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but Lukasz Piszczek’s late own goal levelled matters for Bayern the second time prompting the dreaded penalty shootout.
Second-choice Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich was the hero for his side as he saved two penalties during the shootout to help his side to a 5-4 win.
With the win, Bayern retain their title for a seventh Super Cup triumph in total.
Bayern will start the defence of their title on August 18 as hosts to Bayer Leverkusen while Dortmund travel to VFL Wolfsburg the next day.
