England forward Jadon Sancho scored a goal and set-up another as Borussia Dortmund beat Bayern Munich 2-0 on Saturday (Aug 3) to deny the German league and cup champions a fourth straight Super Cup title.

Sancho, 19, fed Spain forward Paco Alcacer for Dortmund’s opener just after the break before clinching the victory and his side’s first trophy since 2017 with a clinical finish within the final half an hour of play.

Bayern, who pipped Lucien Favre’s side to the Bundesliga title last season and lifted the German Cup, were without World Cup winning left-back and new signing Lucas Hernandez due to a knee problem.

Dortmund’s big name summer arrivals of winger Thorgen Hazard and Julian Brandt, as well as defender Mats Hummels, returning the club after three seasons in Bavaria, were also ruled out due to injuries.

The home side, who finished second in the league last season, had a good early chance.

Bayern start the defence of their league title by hosting Hertha Berlin on Friday and Dortmund play Augsburg on Saturday.
