Why you should back Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich has won the DFL-Supercup four times in the last five years. Bayern defeated Dortmund 3-2 in the 2020 Super Cup thanks to an 82nd-minute goal from Joshua Kimmich. The defensive midfielder registered four goals and 10 assists in the Bundesliga last season and he provided the lone assist in Bayern's 1-1 draw against Monchengladbach in Friday's league opener.
Lewandowski also seems to love playing against his former club, scoring 22 goals across all competitions against Dortmund. The Polish striker scored a hat-trick in Bayern's 4-2 victory over Dortmund on March 6. If Dortmund decides to focus its defensive attention on Lewandowski on Tuesday, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane are more than capable of picking up the slack. The trio combined for 27 goals and 29 assists for Bayern in the Bundesliga last season.
Why you should back Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund has won the Super Cup six times in its history. Dortmund finished third in the Bundesliga standings last season, but Marco Rose's side will enter Tuesday's clash full of confidence. That's because Dortmund secured a 5-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in its Bundesliga opener on Saturday.
Leading the charge in that match was forward Erling Haaland, who's been nearly unstoppable since signing with Dortmund. In fact, the Norwegian has now scored 62 goals in 61 competitive matches for Dortmund. Haaland recorded two goals and two assists in Saturday's victory and he'll look to lead Borussia Dortmund to its seventh German Super Cup title on Tuesday.
