Borrusia Dortmund defeated Bayern Munich 4-2 in the German Supercup to record their first win over the European Champions since the Wembley final loss in May.

Marco Reus’s brace for Dortmund, Ilkay Gundogan’s lone goal and a Daniel van Buyten own goal gave the home team the lead at the Westfalenstadion.

Arjen Robben scored both of Bayern’s goals but they weren’t enough to stop new boss Pep Guardiola from losing his first competitive match.

Franck Ribery, Mario Gotze- who joined Bayern from Dortmund over the summer- and Bastian Schweinsteiger did not feature for the Bavarian giants.

While new recruit Thiago Alcantra, who joined from Barcelona, played the whole 90 minutes in the absence of Ribery.

Stand- in goalkeeper Tom Starke miscued a Sven Bender header to hand Reus the opportunity to head Dortmund ahead, but Robben leveled up for the Bundensliga champions, heading in a Philipp Lahm cross.

Two minutes after the break, Bayern were again playing double catch-ups as Van Buyten scored an own-goal before Gundogan curled home from the edge of the area.

Robben’s cut the deficit before Reus scored his second of the night through new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s assist.
