Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich: Winners and Losers from German Super Cup
Sascha Schuermann/Associated Press

Borussia Dortmund retained the DFL-Superpokal on Wednesday, downing Bayern Munich 2-0 in a repeat of the 2013 edition of the cup final, which BVB had won 4-2.

Both sides entered the match with several key players sidelined with injuries or deemed unfit following the World Cup. But Bayern perhaps suffered the most, with eight players having only returned to training last week. They seemed to lack their typical spark and BVB were comfortable winners thanks to goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Under the circumstances, both teams will take the result and any themes and messages from the game with a grain of salt. But there are some narratives from the result that are worth consideration. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a closer look.
