Joshua Kimmich scored the winning goal as Bayern Munich shrugged off concerns about fixture congestion to beat Borussia Dortmund 3-2 and lift the German Super Cup on Wednesday.

Dortmund fought back from 2-0 down to level the score, before the two goalkeepers made the difference.

Bayern’s Manuel Neuer showed superb reactions to palm away Erling Haaland’s shot when one-on-one with the Norwegian striker. Dortmund’s stand-in keeper Marwin Hitz could only parry Kimmich’s shot in the 82nd minute and the midfielder stretched to flick in the rebound while falling.
