RB Leipzig 3-5 Bayern Munich
Goals: Halstenberg (59e), Nkunku (77e SP) and Olmo (89e) for Roten Bullen // Musiala (14e), Mané (31e), Pavard (45e), Gnabry (66e) and Sané (90e+8) for the Rekordmeister
The steamroller is still in the socket.
The season has not yet started in the Bundesliga, that Bayern are already bombing their chests in Leipzig, cooking the premises of the RBL, to afford their tenth Supercup.
It will only take half time to put an end to the suspense. Or at least seriously dent it, at the Red Bull Arena. The fault of Jamal Musiala, as conductor, involved on the three pawns of the rekordmeister. The 19-year-old kid first left his mark on the bulletin board, through a forest of legs (0-1, 14e), before launching Serge Gnabry, who blacked out the new kid, Sadio Mané (0-2, 31e). Just before the intermission, Musiala finds Benjamin Pavard at the penalty spot (0-3, 45e), after a Rémoise-style corner and a finely played one-two with Thomas Müller.
The coaching of Domenico Tedesco (André Silva and Dani Olmo, in particular) finally brings some attacking momentum to the Bulls, who manage to close the gap on a lobed header from Marcel Halstenberg (1-3, 59e). Bayern thinks of taking a definitive advantage through Serge Gnabry, thanks to a favorable counter (1-4, 66e), but the RBL is not giving up. Christopher Nkunku kicks his penalty in the lulu (2-4, 77e) after a blunder by Pavard on this devil of Olmo, before the Spanish technician surprised Neuer with a vicious and uncrossed strike, at the near post (3-4, 89e). Matthijs de Ligt, entered to manage the end of the match, is borrowed as possible, but a final counter concluded by Leroy Sané seals the fate of the game (3-5, 90e+8).
