DFL Super Cup 2019
Bayern Munich have enjoyed consecutive success in the DFL Super Cup as they beat Stuttgart 1-2 to win the trophy for the second year running.
Last year, Die Bayern beat Schalke 4-1 to get their hands on the Super Cup.
This year, the Bavarian giants were left short-handed, with players like Ademilson
away on international duty.
However, although David Beckham
had to play Will Hughes
in a striking position, it paid off as Bayern won a narrow match with goals from Hughes and Ryan Garland
, who was also operating in an unfamiliar position in right midfield instead of right-back.
Bayern lined up in a brand new 4-4-2 formation, contrary to the 4-3-2-1 they regularly employed last season, and Beckham will be hoping his tactical tinkering pays off.
And it did, for this match at least, with Jesus Blanco
and Hughes working exceptionally together as partners in leading the line.
Bayern Munich will be looking to build on their success, and with the win of the DFL Super Cup, a second consecutive treble is very possible.
