The Bundesliga is back in action for a week and the first title of the season is already up for grabs? Not bad! It has nothing to do with the league, but is the Supercup 2021. In this duel, last season's champion and the winner of the DFB Cup play against each other. As in the past three years, these are Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. But who is broadcasting the game? The daily updates on football on TV are always here.
Supercup 2021: broadcast on TV and live stream
So who is showing the game between BVB and FCB? Since Sat.1 has secured a fairly large rights package this season, the Supercup can be seen on the ProSiebenSat.1 Group station. It starts at 8:05 p.m. Matthias Opdenhövel moderates the preliminary reporting and leads through the evening. There is talk of the two new coaches and of course the question of whether Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann can get his first win with the top club. From 8.30 p.m. the kick-off will be and Wolf-Christoph Fuss will comment. The live stream is available free of charge at Joyn.
But not only Sat.1 shows the Supercup. If you have a Sky subscription, you can also watch the Supercup with the pay TV provider.

Who will win the Supercup? Bavaria or Dortmund?
Showdowns of the industry leaders, shooting competitions of the top scorers and a duel of the new coaches - the final of the Supercup on Tuesday between Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern Munich offers plenty of explosiveness. But with all the explosive material, the game is only partially suitable as an indicator for the further course of the season. Especially not before this season with very special problems in the preparation.
FC Bayern's stuttering start, celebrated start in Dortmund - the starting positions for the two clubs could hardly be more different. FC Bayern is still waiting for the first win in the 2021/22 season. There wasn't much reason to celebrate either in the four pre-season tests or at the start of the league in Mönchengladbach (1-1). On the other hand, BVB recently impressed both in the cup win in Wiesbaden (3-0) and in the 5-2 gala Eintracht against Frankfurt. Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann does not attach much importance to this and suggested leaving "the church in the village". After all, only one competitive game has been completed and the squad is incomplete due to EM placements and injuries.
At BVB, the already tense personnel situation has worsened. In addition to well-known professionals such as Mats Hummels, Raphael Guerreiro, Emre Can, Thomas Meunier and Julian Brandt, Thorgan Hazard is also absent. The Belgian picked up an ankle injury against Frankfurt and could be replaced by €30m acquisition Donyell Malen. Nagelsmann plans with the same squad that was there in Mönchengladbach. Midfielder Corentin Tolisso is about to return to the squad after his Corona failure. Defender Lucas Hernandez has to continue physically catching up after a knee injury.
