Rose ready to fight for Super Cup
Marco Rose says Borussia Dortmund are ready to "fight for the title" ahead of Tuesday's German Super Cup against Bayern Munich.
Rose's team are 2/1 to win the tie in 90 minutes, with the draw 16/5 and Bayern 21/20.
Dortmund beat RB Leipzig 4-1 in last season's DFB-Pokal to earn their place against the Bundesliga winners Bayern and head into the match aiming for their seventh victory in the competition.

The Black and Yellows finished third in the league last season, 14 points off their opponents on Tuesday.
They got their defence of the DFB-Pokal off to the perfect start, beating Wehen Wiesbaden 3-0 before their Bundesliga campaign began with a 5-2 home victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Fresh start for Der BVB
Despite losing Jadon Sancho to Manchester United this summer, Dortmund have made additions to their squad. Dutch forward Donyell Malen made his league debut against Frankfurt and they have also added keeper Gregor Kobel.
Rose, who recently took over at Dortmund following a spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, spoke of his aims for the Super Cup in his pre-match press conference, admitting that he hopes this will be the first of many occasions where he gets to fight for a trophy.
"When you're competing, you should try to win," he said. "Now there's a title up for grabs as well; we have a prestigious clash with Bayern Munich ahead of us. We're taking the game very seriously.
"We'll try to produce our best-possible performance on the pitch and show that we're ready for the season. When you come here, knowing the history of the club, you want to work towards competing for titles – that's why I'm here. We'll fight for the title."
