Match equivalent to the final of the German Super Cup, played at the Red Bull Arena.
The opening bars of the finale counted. Bayern gained possession and Leipzig waited in their field without giving the ball away to the guests. Nagelsmann’s game control, refereed by the energetic crowd at the Red Bull Arena, was sometimes not translated. The first opportunity for the guests came from a free kick with a center from Kimmich, which did not find a finish. Tedesco’s team responded to Bayern’s warning and came close to scaring the Bundesliga champions. Neuer left his area to clear a shipment, but Nkunku picked up the leather and crossed the ball to the penalty spot, but the defense managed to send the ball to the corner.
However, Leipzig improved after the mistake made by the German goalkeeper Musiala seemed to dilute local aspirations. The 19-year-old German winger took advantage of a defensive mismatch on a corner kick to open the can for the final. Mané and Pavard increased the distance in the light to retire his team with a great income. The Senegalese striker debuted as a goalscorer on his Bayern debut.
Leipzig increased the pressure in the second half and Tedesco brought in Dani Olmo and André Silva to freshen up the attack. After a few dangerous approaches, Energetik succeeded close the gap with a header from Halstenberg. Bayern reacted quickly and topped up their account thanks to a goal Gnabry, who scored Gulacsi’s goal with his left leg.
The energetic reduced the distance of eleven meters in the last quarter of an hour. Nkunku was responsible for carrying out the maximum sentence, and he did not fail. When the final reached the 90th minute, Dani Olmo seemed to scare Bayern. The Catalan attacker made it 3-4 in the semi-finals with a low shot that surprised Neuer. However, Bayern managed to win the title in a counterattack, which Sané exploited for the fifth and final goal.
