MUNICH, Germany (AP) — Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the German Supercup yesterday, ending a run of five consecutive defeats to the league and cup champion.

Offseason signing Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring in the sixth minute and helped Bayern extend its lead five minutes later when he found Arjen Robben. The Dutchman's effort hit the post but Thomas Mueller converted the rebound.

Robert Lewandowski pulled one back for Dortmund with 15 minutes remaining to set up an exciting finish.

But Bayern held out for their first win over Dortmund since a 3-1 victory on February 13, 2010 — incidentally the same year in which they last won the Supercup, Germany's traditional season opener.
