Leipzig are Supercup champions

There goes the final whistle. Leipzig are Supercup champions for the first time. A Dani Olmo hat-trick takes the headlines on the night when harry Kane made his Bayern Munich debut. Bayern had their chances but it was a case of Leipzig taking theirs. Top entertainment.

Hats off to Leipzig

Marco Rose's men have performed admirably here. Considering the amount of ins and high-profile outs at the club over the summer, Die Roten Bullen have pinged it about and taken their chances brilliantly. They'll be a force to be reckoned with once again this season.

Sesko again

Another shot from the 20-year-old. This one is dragged wide of the near post.

Sesko chance

Carvalho plays Sesko in and the Slovenian forward is away. He batters a shot goalwards and Ulreich manages to get something on it to deflect the ball wide. Huge chance.

Bayern's bad memories

Of course, Bayern's last official home game was also against Leipzig at the tail end of last season. The defending champions lost that 3-1. The last time FCB suffered two home defeats in a row with a total of six goals conceded was more than 22 years ago under Ottmar Hitzfeld.

Mazraoui goes close

Gnabry's corner loops all the way over the Leipzig defenders towards the far post, where Mazraoui bends before nodding into the side netting. The Bayern fans thought that was in for a second.

Bayern swap

Leon Goretzka comes on for Bayern and takes over captain duties from the departing Joshua Kimmich.


Leipzig hat-trick hero Dani Olmo comes off to be replaced by debutant Fabio Carvalho. Emil Forsberg is also on for the visitors with the impressive Xavi Simons making way.

Leipzig on their way

What a night it's been for Leipzig and Dani Olmo. The visiting fans are jumping and singing high up in the Allianz Arena as the team from Saxony look set to win the Supercup.

Leipzig take flight

Dani Olmo passes the ball into the corner and and that's his hat-trick. Amazing.

Penalty Leipzig !

Mazraoui handles a Seiwald header and the visitors have a chance for 3-0!



Leipzig subs

Meanwhile, Sesko and Poulsen are on for Leipzig.

Kane comes in

Ladies and gentlemen, Harry Kane is on. The roars go up around the Allianz Arena as the stadium announcer shouts out: "It's a magical moment." A tremendous welcome for Bayern's new No.9. Tel is the player to make way.

Bayern again

Tel thwacks a low shot at the target from the left and Blaswich gets down to save. The loose ball is attacked by Musiala but Orban gets his body in there first and clears. Here comes Harry ....

No way through

A long passage of possession for Bayern ends with Mazraoui poking a pass in for Musiala, who scoops a shot high over the crossbar.

Olmo class

Wonder at the Leipzig attacker's second goal of the game.

Chances aplenty

Here come Bayern now. Gnabry has the ball on the left and he rolls across the face for Tel, who stalls his run slightly and then looks to connect on the slide. The pass just evades the Bayern forward.

Raum waste

Leipzig break and the majestic Olmo releases Werner who in turn finds Raum. The full back has time to pick out someone in the middle but he delays a little too much and Bayern get the block in.

Sane magic

Sane works his way across the face of goal before sending a zinger fizzing just past the far post.

Bayern start quickly

Coman dinks a tasty pass in for Gnabry who is in front of goal, but has Raum in close attendance. Raum makes a crucial intervention.

Triple change

Mazraoui, Kim and Coman are on for the defending Bundesliga champions.

Off we go again

Half time

A Dani Olmo double has Leipzig in control at the break and the visitors are on course to lift the Supercup at this point. Bayern do have a certain Harry Kane on the bench, however, so anything could yet happen.

Upamecano saves Bayern

Simons and Openda combine wonderfully and this looks very dangerous. Upamecano comes sliding in at the last second to deny Leipzig a shot on goal from close range.

De Ligt frustration

Davies plays a high ball in for De Ligt but the defender is muscled off it and the chance is gone. The Allianz Arena has gone pretty quiet.

Olmo cracker

Well, well, well! What a goal Dani Olmo! Free kick for Leipzig in midfield and the ball makes its way to Werner. He pokes a pass forward to Olmo, who has his back to goal. The Spain international pulls off the most audacious spin and control to leave two defenders for dead and applies a through-the-legs finish on Ulreich. That was brilliant!

Sane acceleration

The Bayern man is on top of his game here with some super running in the attacking third and defensive contributions to help out his side at the other end.

Upamecano booked

Upamecano wallops Werner from behind and that's going to be a booking for the defender. Raum's subsequent free kick comes to nothing.

Bayern searching

Pavard's set-piece just evades Gnabry at the far post with Henrichs doing his best to put the Bayern man off.

Leroy Sané

Leroy Sané

Super Sane

Lovely ball over the top from Simons towards Werner, who lights up the afterburners in an attempt to get away from Sane. The latter sticks with his man all the way and Werner can't get any purchase on the ball, allowing Ulreich to claim. Superb tracking from Sane there. Werner was more than a little surprised to have been able to shake off his marker.

Visitors survive

Bayern go agonisingly close to equalising. The set piece causes confusion inside the Leipzig area and the ball hits Simakan before nipping against the outside of the post.

Leipzig still in front

Die Roten Bullen continue to lead following Dani Olmo's early strike but they are holding on slightly here.

Tel off target

Great work by Gnabry who gets to the touchline on the left and cuts back for Tel. The French forward wallops a shot high over the crossbar. The striker won't want to see that again in a hurry.

Both sides probing

David Raum sends an aimless one into the Bayern mixer at one end while at the other, Sane's cross from the right is too high for the diving Gnabry,

Seiwald battling

Leipzig's Nicolas Seiwald is struggling slightly for Leipzig. The new arrival from Red Bull Salzburg was thrown into the visiting line-up after Kevin Kampl was injured in the warm-up.

Hosts in possession

Bayern are bossing the ball now but Leipzig are coiled and look a threat on the counter.
Possession (%)

Big Bayern chance

Brilliant from Gnabry, who snaffles possession from Seiwald and then feeds Tel. The striker is right in front of goal and inside the D. His powerful shot is blocked out by Blaswich.

Pavard booked

Pavard hacks the breaking Olmo down and that's an early yellow card for the Bayern defender.

Olmo in good company

In the history of the Supercup, only Vladimir Beschastnykh scored an earlier goal than Olmo managed here. Beschastnykh netted the competition's fastest goal for Werder Bremen against Bayern at the Olympic Stadium in Munich in 1994.

Almost Gnabry

Kimmich picks out Bayern's No. 7 with a slick through pass. Gnabry opens his body and shoots low, but he hasn't caught that and Ulreich can get down to save with relative ease. That was Bayern's best chance thus far.

Home fans rousing

Bayern's supporters are doing their best to lift their team, who are under siege here from a Leipzig side intent on not letting the hosts settle.

Leipzig quick off the mark

In last season's Supercup, Bayern went 1-0 up in the 14th minute. Leipzig have been significantly quicker in taking the lead today.

Leipzig lead!

Scenes! Raum's ball in from the left towards the near post causes consternation in the Bayern area. It comes off Henrichs and breaks for Olmo who side-foots into the far corner.

Leipzig sharp

The visitors are straight out, snapping at the heels of Bayern. Olmo robs Kimmich and immediately feeds Openda who has a decent sight of goal here. The forward scuffs his shot and Ulreich can save easily.

Game on

Bayern get us underway and the ball is rolling in the 2023/24 Supercup.

Teams out!

Both sets of teams have made their way out onto the pitch and we're all set for kick-off at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern absentees

As we await the appearance of both sides here it's worth remembering that the hosts are without some big names tonight. New signing from Dortmund, Raphaël Guerreiro, is out with a calf injury while Manuel Neuer continues his recovery from a leg break. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (knee) and Thomas Müller (hip) will play no part.

Hello Harry

Welcome to Bayern Munich, Herr Harry Kane!

Big changes in Leipzig

As many as six of the players who started for Leipzig in last May's Bundesliga win at the Allianz Arena are no longer around. Gvardiol, Halstenberg, Laimer, Szoboszlai, Nkunku and Silva have all since parted Saxony so it will be fascinating to see how Marco Rose's side gel tonight. Those who are present in the starting line-up tonight who competed in the aforementioned Bundesliga game are Blaswich, Simakan, Orban and Olmo.

Atmosphere building!

It goes without saying that tonight's game is a sell-out and the Allianz Arena is already filling nicely ahead of kick off in Munich.

Bayern team news

With Harry Kane on the bench, Mathys Tel gets the nod up front for the defending Supercup champions. Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano start in central defence, meaning new arrival Min-Jae Kim is on the bench. Konrad Laimer starts against his old side.

Leipzig team news

Tonight's visitors also have a very recent signing on the bench. Defender Castello Lukeba arrived just yesterday from Lyon and he joins fellow new signings Nicolas Seiwald, Benjamin Sesko, and Fabio Carvalho among the Leipzig subs tonight. There are competitive debuts for forward Lois Openda and Xavi Simons in Marco Rose's starting XI.

Harry Kane watch!

Bayern supporters will be seeing that their new star striker is on the bench for this evening's Supercup. What a 24 hours it has been for fans of the record champions!

In Munich "to win"

Leipzig's double DFB Cup winning midfielder Kevin Kampl wasn't holding back when asked about his team's chances in the Bavarian capital this evening. "One thing is clear, we’re going to Munich to win," the 32-year-old insisted. "We’ve got the chance to lift a trophy and you don’t get that sort of chance very often. We therefore want to make the most of this opportunity."

Solid pre-season

Bayern won four of their five friendly games as they prepared for the defence of their Bundesliga title over the summer. Those victories, combined with some intensive work on the training pitch, led coach Tuchel to reveal, "There's been a good spirit and high quality in training for several weeks." No doubt those spirits will have been lifted even further with the arrival of a certain new star striker at Säbener Straße.

Allainz Arena all set

Take a matchday trip with us inside the venue for tonight's Supercup encounter: the magnificent Allianz Arena!

Last time out

Leipzig go into tonight's match in good spirits knowing their very first win in Munich against Bayern came less than three months ago. Die Roten Bullen's 3-1 triumph last 20 May threw the title race wide open with Konrad Laimer - now of Bayern - netting an equaliser before a couple of Leipzig penalties sealed the deal for Marco Rose's men.

Will he, won't he?

With Kane-mania sweeping the world, all eyes will be on the Allianz Arena tonight for a glimpse of the main man, who says he is keen to feature against Leipzig. Bayern's new No. 9 said he'll, "hopefully be able to play," in tonight's Supercup. Rest assured there'll be plenty of eyes on Thomas Tuchel's team sheet when it drops a little later.

Kane is a Bayern player!

Harry Kane has completed his sensational switch to Bayern Munich to Tottenham Hotspur, and has been registered in time to play against RB Leipzig in the Supercup.

Leipzig's "huge challenge"

RBL boss Marco Rose has been giving his thoughts ahead of Saturday's blockbuster at the Allianz Arena. "We will face what is undeniably a huge challenge in Munich, but we are excited, as we know that our title win in June has earned us the right to compete in this game," the tactician said. "The boys thrive when playing against this standard of team. After this fixture, it will be clear where we stand and how we can improve."

'Red against Racism'

During Saturday's Supercup game, Bayern's shirts will contain the slogan, 'Red against Racism.' A club statement reads: "The cross-club initiative, which was launched three years ago, sees the German record champions regularly taking a stand against all discrimination and for diversity."

Lukeba lands in Saxony

A big boost for Leipzig ahead of Saturday's Supercup showdown against Bayern with Die Roten Bullen announcing the arrival of 20-year-old French defender Castello Lukeba from Lyon on a five-year deal. "I knew that Leipzig was absolutely the right move for me; I can’t wait to play football here," Lukeba said.

Müller and Choupo-Moting in contention

Tuchel has also stated that both Thomas Müller and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting could feature against Leipzig after returning to training from injury. On the pair, Tuchel told the press that they have "completed three training sessions with the team. They have worked hard and are currently pain-free. If that continues, then they could be options for the matchday squad."

Tuchel: "Leipzig will be a good test"

Bayern boss Tuchel has been in front of the media on the eve of the Supercup and it's clear he means business ahead of his first full season in charge. "Our aims are clear: we want to win the league and the cup and enjoy a deep run in the Champions League," he said. "This will be a good test. We hope that we will be able to transfer the energy that we're seeing in training right now to the game tomorrow."

Forsberg: "It's going to be exciting"

Speaking to bundesliga.com in the build-up to the match, Emil Forsberg outlined his thoughts on the occasion: “It's going to be exciting. It's a big game. We are training for it now, preparing. It's going to be a difficult game. They've also had their pre-season now with Thomas Tuchel and they brought some players in. It's going to be interesting. It's going to be a tough game but, of course, we want to win it.”

Time to buck the trend?

Of the 23 official Supercup matches that have been held, the defending Bundesliga champions have won 15 times. The DFB Cup winners (or beaten finalists or league runners-up, in the cases that a team won the double) have won on eight occasions - but not since 2015, when Wolfsburg overcame Bayern on penalties.


In the seven Bundesliga seasons these teams have shared to date, Bayern have had the upper hand overall in terms of results. There have been 17 competitive meetings, of which Leipzig have won two, drawn six and lost nine.

Laimer poised for reunion

Konrad Laimer made the switch from Leipzig to Bayern earlier this summer, so the Supercup presents a swift reunion with his former colleagues. “It’s just the way it is," he told bundesliga.com when asked about facing Marco Rose's side in his first competitive game for Bayern. "I think I'm the type of person who always wants to win, whether it's a competitive match, a friendly, or even playing football in the pool. I'm looking forward to seeing the guys again briefly before and after the game. But during those 90 minutes I want to win, and that's all there is to it.”

Watch: The epic nine-goal thriller from 2016/17

These two teams were involved in one of the most memorable Bundesliga matches ever a few years ago as Leipzig went toe-to-toe with Bayern, hoping to knock them off their perch. It didn't all go to plan in that game, but spectators were nevertheless left with more than their money's worth at full time.

Olmo eyeing improvement

After a slow start to the 2022/23 campaign, Leipzig's Dani Olmo - who recently signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2027 - is keen for his side to be quicker out of the blocks this term. “Last season we didn’t start so well but afterwards had good dynamics," the Spain international told bundesliga.com. "We won a lot of games in a row. This is the goal, to keep winning. Of course, you can make mistakes and lose some points at any point but the goal is just to keep going forward all the time. This season it is our goal again to keep going and to try win every game.”

The Supercup explained

The Supercup is the traditional curtain-raiser on the domestic season in Germany as the Bundesliga champions take on the DFB Cup holders. It previously existed between 1987 and 1996, but was organised by the DFB (German FA). It was then replaced by the Ligapokal (League Cup) until the DFL re-introduced the Supercup in 2010. The most successful team in the competition is Bayern with 10 titles, while Leipzig - runners-up in 2022 - are the 13th different club to compete for the prize.

Watch: Leipzig - 2022/23 review

Beaten 5-3 by Bayern in the season-opening Supercup, Leipzig recovered from a slow start under Domenico Tedesco to finish third with Marco Rose at the helm. They went out to Man City in the Champions League last-16 to eventual winners Man City, but successfully defended the DFB Cup for the second year on the bounce.

Watch: Bayern - 2022/23 review

Despite losing 3-1 at home to Leipzig on the penultimate weekend, Bayern overtook Borussia Dortmund on the final day to make it 11 Bundesliga titles in a row. However, they were eliminated by Freiburg at the quarter-final stage of the DFB Cup, having lost at the same juncture to Man City in the UEFA Champions League.
