BT Sport; Fox Sport
The German Super Cup will take place on Saturday night at the Volkswagon Arena in Wolfsburg as the home side and DFB Pokal winners Wolfsburg take on Bundelsiga Champions Bayern Munich. Wolfsburg will be looking to continue their improvement from last season as they were one of the most entertaining sides in Europe to watch. Dost, Schurrle and De Bruyne will look to continue to torment defences and will be looking to repeat their terrific 4-1 win over Bayern Munich from last season at this very ground. There is no doubt that Wolfsburg will raise their game for this one against their great league rivals and the team that has won more than any other side in Germany.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola will be looking for his side to continue their domestic dominance. Robben, Muller , Lewandowski and Ribery are all fully fit again and Bayern will be looking to start the season with a bang. This is a tough game for Bayern in wolfsburg and considering the Bundesliga champions have had a so & so preseason not lighting up the score board too often this will be a good indication of where they are before the start of the league campaign. With such a strength in depth Bayern should not feel the loss of Bastian Schwiensteiger too much as Arturo Vidal should fill that gap, the former Juventus midfielder is likely to make his debut.
While the Super Cup is little more than a glorified friendly I dont think either team will want to lose this and given the way Wolfsburg like to play I think we could be in for a really entertaining game. I am going to take the overs here as I see both teams being strong offensively and both sets of defences have had their problems. Wolfsburg play a really great counter attacking style and it suits them against Bayern who love to press and play a possession game , this should be one of the games of the weekend.
