Football: Dortmund take Super Cup honours and partial revenge
DORTMUND , Germany (AFP) - Borussia Dortmund exacted partial revenge on Bayern Munich for their Champions League final defeat with a 4-2 win in a gripping German Super Cup encounter on Saturday.
Dortmund, undone 2-1 at Wembley and distant runners-up to champions Bayern in the Bundesliga, deprived new Bayern coach Pep Guardiola of his first piece of silverware and inflicted his first loss since the former Barcelona boss took over from Jupp Heynckes.
The home side took a sixth-minute lead, largely due to a mistake by Bayern keeper Tom Starke, who after a poor clearance was unable to keep out Marco Reus's diving header.
Dortmund thought they'd gone two goals clear minutes later only for striker Robert Lewandowski's effort to be ruled offside.
