Bayern Munich twice came from behind before beating Borussia Dortmund 5-4 on penalties to win the German Super Cup.

Christian Pulisic gave the hosts the lead at Signal Iduna Park before Poland striker Robert Lewandowski equalised.

Dortmund regained the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lukasz Piszczek's late own goal forcing penalties.

Bayern won 5-4 after their second-choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich saved two spot kicks in the shootout.
