MOST COMMENTED

Bayern Munich, missing several key stars, conceded four goals en route to losing the German Super Cup, 4-2, at the hands of fierce rival Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. It was the first time the German and European champion had conceded more than three goals in a competitive game since losing 5-2 to the same opposition in the 2012 German Cup final. Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery, Mario Goetze and Javi Martinez were all missing for Pep Guardiola’s men, while Bastian Schweinsteiger was not fit enough to play the full game.

"We now have 10 days until the Bundelsiga kicks off. We'll correct our minor mistakes," Guardiola said. "Overall, I am satisfied with our performance. We played well and took up good positions. Even though we lost, I don't have the feeling Dortmund were superior."

Dutch international Arjen Robben, who scored both of Bayern’s goals, told kicker: “We should not panic. We made mistakes. We need to learn from that, but I don't want to exaggerate it. You always play to win. Every title is one more, and that's why we want to win all titles. It did not work out in the Super Cup, but there are still a lot of titles left to win."
