Bayern Munich lost their third straight German Super Cup under manager Pep Guardiola, going down 5-4 in Wolfsburg in a dramatic penalty shootout.

German football's curtain raiser between the League champions and Cup winners burst into life after a goalless first half with Arjen Robben firing Bayern ahead on 49 minutes with a close-range shot.
