Jadon Sancho was the star of the night, scoring one goal and assisting another as Borussia Dortmund beat Bayern Munich 2-0 to win the German Supercup.

Two minutes into the second half; The 19 year old England International, Sancho, made a fine run before he set up Paco Alcacer, who shot past Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

 

Bayern had chances to equalize but Marwin Hitz saved a Leon Goretzka effort and Kingsley Coman’s header.

 

Sancho then scored Dortmund’s second with a low strike after another run.
