Bayern beats Leipzig in super cup, Leverkusen upset in cup

  Bayern beats Leipzig in super cup, Leverkusen upset in cup LEIPZIG, Germany (AP) — Sadio Mané scored to help Bayern Munich defeat Leipzig 5-3 and win the German Super Cup on Saturday, when Bayer Leverkusen and Cologne were upset in the first round of the German Cup. Jamal Musiala, Mané and Benjamin Pavard all scored in the first half as 10-time Bundesliga champion Bayern threatened a rout in Leipzig. But the visitors needed Leroy Sané to seal the win in the eighth minute of injury time after Marcel Halstenberg, Christopher Nkunku and Daniel Olmo pulled Leipzig back into the game. Serge Gnabry also scored for Bayern.

What a game! In their first competitive game of the season, Bayern Munich defeated RB Leipzig 5-3 to win the DFL Super Cup and claim their first piece of silverware.

The first half was one of the best halves of football Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern has played so far, with hard pressing, free-flowing attacks, and a sturdy defense all coming together to give Bayern a 3-0 lead at halftime. The second half, however, saw Bayern go off the rails a bit and almost succumb to a late Leipzig comeback. It was too little too late, though, and Bayern emerged deserved winners regardless. Goals from Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mané, Benjamin Pavard, Serge Gnabry, and Leroy Sané saw Bayern successfully defend their Super Cup title.

There were a lot of talking points from the game, namely Nagelsmann trying a new system in light of Robert Lewandowski’s departure and the lack of a classic striker, the new signings making their competitive debuts for the club, and a potential roadmap for what to expect going forward. There were a lot of positives, but also a lot to improve on, so hopefully the team can use this win as a valuable lesson.

In this episode of the Flagship show, Schnitzel and Teddy discuss:

  • How good (and how bad) Bayern Munich were in their Super Cup win
  • What a phenomenon Jamal Musiala is
  • Other players who impressed during the game
  • What formation Julian Nagelsmann used and what he might use throughout the season
  • Why a back four is the way to go
