It's gloves off for the likes of Thomas Müller, Marco Reus and Manuel Neuer as Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich prepare to contest the first piece of silverware ahead of the new 2019/20 Bundesliga season in the DFL Supercup.

This will be at the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund

Marco Reus (Dortmund captain): "The Supercup carries great significance for all of us. It's a title, it's important to make a good start to the season and to show our fans we want to win something.

It is clear, though, that neither team is firing on all cylinders yet."

Lucien Favre (Dortmund coach): "Thorgan Hazard is doing better. He's running again, but he's still feeling something. We don't want to take any risks. Julian Brandt will definitely miss out on Saturday. He can only do strength training."

Marwin Hitz (Dortmund goalkeeper): "Our pre-season games showed we're capable of playing good football, but we aren't yet showing the concentration that is required. That'll come if we work on our freshness.

The Supercup is a match with lots of potential. That's when it really starts for us."

Michael Zorc (Dortmund sporting director): "It's our first competitive game of the season, and games against Bayern are always special. Obviously we want to win the title, especially in our own stadium.

It's still part of the preparatory phase, but it's always a must-win for both teams when we play each other."

Bayern Munich

Manuel Neuer (Bayern captain): "We've played well in all of the pre-season matches. Now to the serious business. Of course we want to win!"

Niko Kovac (Bayern coach): "I'm very happy with our pre-season campaign, and the team are in very good shape at the moment. It will be an interesting game and we want to win it. We're taking this game very seriously.

Dortmund have strengthened and have been in pre-season longer than we have. It'll be an intensive game. BVB will be our closest challengers again. We'll need to be wide awake."

Thomas Müller (Bayern forward): "Games in Dortmund always have a certain electricity. We're feeling good right now, and the first title of the season is always important. We want to set the bar. We'll give it everything."

David Alaba (Bayern left-back): "We've been playing well, and will need to continue to do so in Dortmund. It's certainly a chance to lay down a marker for the new season."

Leon Goretzka (Bayern midfielder): "I can't wait for it. It's a big game in a fantastic stadium, where we'll get to see where we're really at ahead of the new season."

Niklas Süle (Bayern centre-back): "We're playing well, and we want to set the standard for the rest of the season."
