#3 Kimmich's tirelessness and persistence comes to the fore
Undoubtedly the man of the match, Joshua Kimmich lived up to the legacy of Thiago Alcantara after taking up his 'number-six' jersey at Bayern Munich.
The Germany international, who had scored the sole goal in Bayern's win over Dortmund in May, tore through the away side's midfield in the last 10 minutes of the game to score the winner. What was interesting though is that Kimmich's persistence and hard work shone through, with the 25-year-old scoring from a rebound of his own shot behind Marwin Hitz's goal.
Known as the successor of the legendary Philipp Lahm at Bayern Munich and for Germany, there is no doubt that Kimmich lived up to the expectations with a 91% passing success rate and a 100% long ball success rate tonight.
#4 Erling Haaland single-handedly takes on Bayern Munich
A lonely figure in the Bayern Munich area for most of the first half, Erling Haaland really took matters in his own hands as he was a total menace for the home side's back-four.
Running towards the centre-back duo of Hernandez and Sule with all his might, the fearless young striker was a live wire creating action for a Dortmund team which sort of lacked motivation for the majority of the game.
After assisting Julian Brandt for the first goal, Haaland scored the second to level things up at the Allianz Arena. Even after the goal, his hunger for a winner continued as he had another three shots in the game, with one of them almost being converted if not for Manuel Neuer's excellent stop.
The Dortmund camp will have a lot of positives to take from Haaland's performance, and one can only hope that they will build upon the same.
#5 Bayern Munich are a league above Borussia Dortmund
This was not one of the best nights for Hansi Flick's men for sure. Despite a pretty average performance, the champions of Europe won the game and lifted another trophy in 2020.
It is worth mentioning that Bayern Munich lacked many of their first-team regulars in the starting eleven. Without their key personnel, the Super Cup winners still looked better than their closest German challengers on the pitch.
The versatility in the Bayern Munich team that started this game was just unbelievable. As Alphonso Davies kept switching between a wing-back and a full-back, right centre-back Lucas Hernandez filled in for Davies in the right-back role.
Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski took turns to drop deep into the midfield so that the other two attackers could find space behind the Dortmund defence. Joshua Kimmich was omnipresent on the field and Javi Martinez was the fifth defender in the Bayern wall.
Bayern Munich just seem light years ahead of not only Dortmund but also of all the other German clubs. With an insane squad depth which runs deep into their youth system, they could literally field another squad in the Bundesliga and still wouldn't finish in the bottom half. A few more incoming personnel, and this team from the red half of Munich could be invincible for years to come.
