Bayern Munich's penalties win over Chelsea certainly didn't matter all that much otherwise.
A morale-boosting win for Bayern, for sure. But you suspect they would rather have picked up three points against Freiburg the other day, as a revitalised Borussia Dortmund look to exploit the personnel change in Bavaria.
Hard cheese for Chelsea, of course. Romelu Lukaku - who has been made to feel like he is playing for his career at Stamford Bridge - was in tears, inconsolable after missing the final spot-kick, but surely this will not impact on his long-term confidence.
After all, the Super Cup is little more than a Eurovision version of the Community Shield, Spanish Super Copa, Italian Super Coppa or any such other trivial, money-spinning one-offs that only the most particular of supporter counts as a trophy, let alone a major one.
Indeed, anything that feels the need to precede its actual name with 'super' is likely to be anything but. Or a fictional crime-fighting vigilante in a leotard.
"I told him (Pep) this is a goal for you, against Mourinho," Franck Ribery said afterwards.
That's more like it. Because, for all their insistence before this match, Guardiola and Mourinho really don't like each other.
It was personal. Why else would Mourinho ridiculously claim his were the better side on the night, in control of a match they were only in because of Petr Cech's heroics and some wasteful finishing from Bayern?
Why else would he make the absurd insistence that Ramires's shocking two-footed leg-breaker on Mario Goetze was not worthy of a second yellow card, when it was clearly a straight red at best? The Brazilian will be lucky to avoid sanction in Chelsea's Champions League campaign, as it was an atrocious challenge for which he should be censured, not praised as Mourinho appeared to do as he trudged off.
Mourinho continued his rampage because, while the match matters little for Chelsea - who have won everything there is to win bar the Club World Cup, another lame duck of a trophy - any tete-a-tete with Pep means a heck of a lot to Jose, whose new-found 'happy' status looks set to find foe in the Bayern boss.
Mourinho needs challenging, not coddling, and in the absence of any real domestic rivals to his famous ego, Guardiola remains the key adversary to spur his sense of injustice.
With Fergie gone, Pellegrini too modest to engage, Wenger eating himself whole and AVB too close a friend to draw into open conflict, Mourinho doesn't really have any enemies. And with Chelsea and Bayern trading blows with regularity, what better place to start than his nemesis?
And, for all Mou's protests, Pep is a nemesis. If you include Friday night (many will not as it came on penalties), the former Barcelona coach leads Jose 8-3 in their personal head-to-head.
That will rankle with Mourinho, who tried to claim dominance before the match by pointing out that one of his triumphs was en route to Champions League victory, and the other in the Copa Del Rey final.
Yeah right. This winds him up no end - and expect the rivalry to resurface again soon, probably in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
