Super Bayern, Super Bayern, hey, hey! With a total of ten wins in the German Supercup, FC Bayern extended their lead as record champions over Borussia Dortmund (6 wins). In the past seven seasons, the trophy has come home to Munich six times.

In 1987, the Supercup was held for the first time, and the winner was then, as it is now, FC Bayern.

Bayern won the Supercup for the third season in a row, matching a record that had previously only ever been achieved by FC Bayern themselves, from 2016 to 2018.

3. Five goals, five scorers

Serge Gnabry made it 3-0 just before the break.

FC Bayern demonstrated their new-found attacking flexibility for the first time in their 5-3 win in Leipzig. In Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mané, Serge Gnabry, Benjamin Pavard and Leroy Sané, five different players got on the scoresheet.

4. Dream debut for Mané

Sadio Mané couldn't have dreamed of a better debut for FC Bayern.

First game, first goal, first trophy: Sadio Mané's competitive debut for FC Bayern could not have gone better. After Bouna Sarr, he is just the second Senegalese star to play professionally for Bayern - and how. In the 31st minute, Mané scored after a great assist from Gnabry to make it 2-0.

5. Müller with the most Supercup appearances

Thomas Müller has won the trophy eight times.

Thomas Müller has already played in the Supercup 12 times, more than any other player. With five goals, the 33-year-old is also the second-topscorer in the history of the competition, with Robert Lewandowski only ever having scored more (7).

6. Musiala youngest Bayern goalscorer in the Supercup

Unstoppable: Jamal Musiala posed challenges to Leipzig's defence.

In the 14th minute of the match, youngster Musiala made the Bayern fans celebrate and performed outstandingly until his substitution. With his goal, the 19-year-old is FC Bayern's youngest scorer in the Supercup. Overall, Musiala is the third youngest scorer in the competition at just 19 years and 154 days, with Dortmund's Jadon Sancho (19, 131 days) and Christian Pulisic (18, 321 days) having been younger.

7. Ever effective FC Bayern

A shot, a goal, Bayern! Jamal Musiala brought the FCB fans into raptures.

FC Bayern had exactly three shots at Péter Gulácsi's goal in the first half, and the Leipzig goalkeeper had to pick the ball out of the net three times. Musiala, Mané and Pavard's goals left the Hungarian with no chance.

8. Most goal-laden Supercup of all time

Eight goals in one match, never before seen in the Supercup. RB Leipzig and FC Bayern thus surpassed the record held since 1989 (7 goals). Back then, Borussia Dortmund beat the German record champions 4-3.

9. Debuts for Gravenberch, de Ligt and Mazraoui

In addition to Mané, three other newcomers made their competitive debuts for FC Bayern. In the 68th minute, Ryan Gravenberch entered the pitch to the applause of the Bayern fans. Ten minutes later, Matthijs de Ligt and Noussair Mazraoui also made their first competitive appearances.

10. Stable defence in the first half

Benjamin Pavard impressed not just in defense.

A pinpoint attack and a solid defence, especially in the first half: before half-time, Lucas Hernández's defence did not allow a single shot on Manuel Neuer's goal. Afterwards, however, the Munich team had to "make note of the lack of prep", as Nagelsmann explained after the match.
