Bayern win over United before the Supercopa

Bayern win over United before the Supercopa

2018 Aug 6

Bayern Munich beat Manchester United for the slightest difference in the Allianz Arena, teams that are focused on the official debut in their respective competitions. James Rodríguez was not part of the call for the Bavarian team and continues its preparation for the start of the new campaign.

The Allianz Arena showed its new internal image, with renovations in the stands that have the colors, shield and motto of Bayern Munich. And it was the local who took the spotlight throughout the game. In the first 45 minutes, David De Gea was called on two occasions against mid-range shots by Thiago and Gnabry, but the Spanish goalkeeper was confident in both interventions. The teams went to the break with a goalless draw.

In the first minute of the second part came another approach by Bayern through Gnabry, of outstanding performance. The only goal of the compromise came by means of the still ball. At minute 59 Thiago executed a corner kick and Javi Martinez beat everyone in the header to beat De Gea and give the victory to the German team, which was not required in defense.

Bayern could increase the score near the end with a cross from Boateng for the definition of Robben, who won the back to the central, but the goal play was canceled because the Dutch started offside.

The new season for Bayern Munich will start on Sunday August 12 against Eintracht Frankfurt for the German Super Cup, while Mourinho's team will open on Friday the Premier League 2018/19 with the game against Leicester City at Old Trafford.
