Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will face each other on August 5 in the 2017 DFL Supercup. The two teams qualified with Bayern winning the Bundesliga and Dortmund winning the DFB Pokal.

This is the fifth time since the event was revived in 2010 that the two sides have met in the preseason event. The two teams split the previous four meetings, with Bayern getting the upper hand last August. Bayern have won the trophy three times, while Dortmund have won it twice.

Both sides could face some changes this summer. Bayern have been linked to several big money transfers, while Dortmund are rumored to be parting ways with manager Thomas Tuchel. Still, when these two teams take the field against each other, fireworks usually fly.

On it’s face, Bayern face a tough preseason schedule full of big name clubs. Dortmund joins a list featuring Chelsea, Arsenal, Inter, and AC Milan. However, only two of those clubs will be in next season’s Champions League. Bayern will also face Champions League-bound Hoffenheim this summer.
