WATCH: NKUNKU’S BEST SKILLS AND GOALS
"We’ve got several weeks of training first,” Leipzig head coach Domenico Tedesco told the club website at the end of June as he led his team’s pre-season preparations on their first day back after a summer break. “I’m not focusing on the Supercup yet. Of course though, it’s a final, so we’ll be playing to win it. We’re obviously looking forward to it too.”
WATCH: SUPERCUP 2021 HIGHLIGHTS
Bayern have the upper hand historically in meetings between these teams, having won eight of the 14 encounters to date, including each of the last three. There have been five draws - the most recent of which was in December 2020 - while Die Roten Bullen have triumphed just once, doing so in March 2018 in a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Naby Keita and Timo Werner.
LAST TIME OUT
BAYERN BRING EXPERIENCE
The Bundesliga champions are no strangers to this competition, of course, and will be competing for the trophy for an 11th successive time. The Bavarian giants have won the Supercup six times since 2012. The last non-Bayern winner was Borussia Dortmund three years ago.
LEIPZIG'S FIRST SUPERCUP
Domenico Tedesco's side won their first ever DFB Cup following a penalty shootout win against Freiburg last May and are thus competing in their very first Supercup!
A VERY WARM WELCOME!
The Supercup between RB Leipzig and German champions Bayern Munich will take place on 30 July at 20:30 CET at the home of the DFB Cup holders.
