On August first the Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich, faced off from the second place runner-ups, Wolfsburg. Everyone had high wants Wolfsburg this year, who performed exceptionally well and were able to come in second place.
Wolfsburg has not always been the best performing team but last season was obviously a completely different story. Their striker Bas Dost, 25, has got the best striking rate in
Bundesliga. With an average of just one goal per 63 minutes, Bas Dost scored an overall of 13 goals through the season.
With the help of Kevin de Bruyne, the 24-year-old Belgium international, who had 10 goals as well as an incredible 20 assists this season they managed to win the Super Cup in the reigning champions. His recent performance inside the Bundesliga are making him among the hottest people on the transfer market today, nonetheless it does not seem like Wolfsburg would like to try selling their most valuable player.'' It was quite surprising how successful Wolfsburg were this coming year considering the fact that certainly one of their very talented youth player Junior Malanda died in a car accident with the age of 20. Passing away at the begining of January left the team in a state of shock but allow the fans and great teammates to encourage the other and dedicate their victories for the late Junior read more Malanda. They did all they might to secure their honor because of their beloved teammate. It was really something to look at.
Bayern continues to be struggling since 2012 to win the Super Cup and yes it seems that this cup belonged to Wolfburg. Kevin de Bruyne had missed an early chance at goal after heading it on the anxious and cheeky Manuel Neur only to miss a fairly easy open goal, but he made up for it within the late 80th minute by offering an assist towards the one and only Lord Bendtner to equalize the score. Not only was Bednter capable to score the equalizing goal but also the final penalty to make them the Super Cup champions.
It is refreshing to find out a team with a lot of youth, talent, and passion produce a change for the better and beat the Champions. It looks like Wolfsburg may catch up to Bayern next season and come out in first place inside the Bundesliga Season. Let me know individual preference wanted to win the Super Cup and you can post any comments below.
