Bayern Munich now know who they will be facing in the 2015 DFL Supercup after Saturday's DFB Pokal Final. Wolfsburg capped off their impressive season with a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund at the Olympiastadion in Berlin. This will be FC Bayern's fourth straight Supercup appearance and fifth out of the last six years.

The DFL Supercup puts the winners of the previous season's Bundesliga and DFB Pokal in a match at the beginning of the season. The non-Bundesliga-winning club hosts the match, so Bayern will be traveling to the Volkswagen Arena on August 1 to face Wolfsburg.

Bayern have lost in both Supercup appearances under Pep Guardiola, both by two goals to BVB. However, a new power in green has risen in German football, and Bayern will look to show another great team that they're still the power in the Bundesliga.

Many people saw the rise of Wolfsburg coming before this season, but I don't think anyone would've predicted them finishing second in the league and winning the Pokal. All in all, the 2014-15 season was absolutely fantastic for VfL Wolfsburg, and we at Bavarian Football Works welcome a new challenger to the throne.
