LEWANDOWSKI: BAYERN WILL BE PERFECT IN A FEW MONTHS

After a mixed performance against Borussia Dortmund followed an awful pre-season campaign, the Polish striker remains optimistic

Robert Lewandowski believes Bayern Munich will have found their top form within “a few months” after beating Borussia Dortmund on penalties to win the DFL-Supercup following a dreadful pre-season.

Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, deputising for the injured Manuel Neuer, was the hero for Bayern with penalty saves from Sebastian Rode and Marc Bartra after a 2-2 draw in regulation time at Signal Iduna Park.

Get Bayern’s Bundesliga title odds

Carlo Ancelotti’s side twice found themselves behind in the curtain-raising Klassiker, with Lewandowski cancelling out Christian Pulisic’s opener and Roman Burki’s unfortunate late own goal meaning Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was unable to call himself the match-winner.

Bayern came into the game on the back of four defeats in their past five friendly outings, including heavy losses to AC Milan and Liverpool, but despite a mixed performance against BVB, Lewandowski is confident they will eventually recover peak form.
