WATCH: NKUNKU’S BEST SKILLS AND GOALS

One man who’ll be looking to continue his sensational form from last season is Leipzig attacker Christopher Nkunku, who plundered 20 goals and 13 assists in the Bundesliga in 2021/22. Here’s what makes him so good.

TEDESCO FOCUSED

"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

Robert Lewandowski scored twice as Bayern lifted the first trophy of the 2021/22 season thanks to a 3-1 win over Dortmund.

OVERALL HEAD-TO-HEAD

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.
