With the 2021/2022 German football season well underway, It was Bayern Munich who tasted silverware first after defeating Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the German Supercup final.

Dortmund fell yet again, this time being defeated 2-1. You’d think the score sheet, being 2-1, looks like a tight matchup, but Freiburg scored an own goal in that match.
