It looked like Dortmund would clinch a neat 2-1 win on home turf but Bayern had an ace in the hole and flabbergasted the hosts with a two-all draw equalizer through Kimmich, who poked home from close range to force a penalty shootout in the 88th minute.

Bayern Munich overcame their shaky pre-season form to defeat rivals Borussia Dortmund in the German Supercup final, courtesy of a dramatic 5-4 penalty shootout victory at Signal Iduna Park.

Joshua Kimmich saw his spot-kick stopped by Burki, but Bayern's backup Sven Ulreich saved penalties from ex-Bayern midfielder Sebastian Rode and Marc Bartra to prove the unlikely hero for the Bavarians.

Bayern twice had to come from behind in the first Klassiker of the campaign with Robert Lewandowski cancelling out Christian Pulisic's opener, while Roman Burki's own goal denied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the chance to prove the match victor. "But again, we should not have let the game go into the penalty shoot-out". "I'm pleased. We played with good concentration".

"Of course the title is important", he said.
