DORTMUND, Germany (AFP) - Bayern Munich lifted the German Super Cup on Saturday (Aug 5) with a 5-4 win in a penalty shoot-out at Borussia Dortmund after Marc Bartra had his crucial final spot-kick saved.

The game finished 2-2 over 90 minutes as Christian Pulisic's early goal for Dortmund was cancelled out by Robert Lewandowski.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, last season's top-scorer in the Bundesliga, restored Dortmund's lead with 19 minutes left before Lukasz Piszczek's late own goal took the match straight to penalties.
