- Supercup to take place between Dortmund and Bayern on Sunday 14 August.
- BVB's SIGNAL IDUNA PARK will provide the stage for the encounter.
- Fixture sold out within hours of tickets going on sale.
To whet your appetite ahead of the eagerly awaited Klassiker between Germany's two heavyweights, we have a closer look at both teams…
New season, new Dortmund
Mats Hummels, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ilkay Gündogan may have left, but with Mario Götze, Andre Schürrle, Marc Bartra, Ousmane Dembele, Emre Mor and Raphael Guerreiro coming in, BVB look well placed to hit the ground running in 2016/17. Here is how coach Thomas Tuchel could reshuffle his line-up.
The Ancelotti era
Bayern may not have been as active in the transfer market, but there is an air of a fresh start in Munich too, as Carlo Ancelotti begins his first season at the helm since taking over from Pep Guardiola. How might he integrate Hummels and midfield dynamo Renato Sanches? We explore his options here.
Mkhitaryan contributed 11 Bundesliga goals and 15 assists last season, so filling his shoes will be no small task. Yet with USA international Christian Pulisic, Dembele and Mor in the squad, Dortmund's attack looks well stocked for years to come. Take an in-depth look at the BVB youngsters set to take up the mantle.

Who is Carlo Ancelotti?
Taking over from a man as successful as Guardiola is no small challenge, but if any coach is up to the task then it is Ancelotti. We have the lowdown on the Italian master tactician right here.
