Real Madrid does not get tired of winning titles and this time got the first of the season. The Merengues beat Manchester United 2-1 to reach their fourth European Super Cup and prove they are still reigning in the ‘Old Continent’.
From the beginning Real Madrid became the owner of the ball, while the ‘Red Devils’ waited in their field and, barely recovering it, came out fast against in search of its center forward: Romelu Lukaku.
YOU CAN SEE José Mourinho confirms the interest he has for Gareth Bale and ignites the alarms in Real Madrid
With the passing of the minutes the runners by Zidane felt more comfortable on the court, and had already warned De Gea with a header to the transverse of Casemiro . It was the Brazilian who opened the scoring in the 23rd minute after connecting at first a great pass from Dani Carvajal from outside the area. After the goal, Manchester United did not react. He did not change his initial plan and continued to defend before thinking about the rival arch.
For the second half, José Mourinho had to play for Marcus Rashford instead of Jesse Lingard to gain more speed and overflow on the left wing. The young Englishman was less and more and even had in his feet – later – what could be the tie.
However, the English were surprised in a few minutes. Isco (52 ‘) made a great wall with Gareth Bale, entered the area and defined cross with the departure of De Gea to put the 2-0 partial. The game seemed doomed, even the Welsh winger missed what could be the third when sending his shot to the crossbar.
Romelu Lukaku (62 ‘) was not at a loss . The Belgian took advantage of a rebound of Keylor Navas after an initial shot of Matic to cut distances. The goal revived hope in Manchester, who advanced their lines in search of equality.
They did not have many clearings, except that of Rashford about the final minutes of the match. The attacker was only in front of Navas, defined cross, but the ‘Tico’ took a saving hand to say that the marker would not move more. So it was. Real Madrid got the first of the six titles for which it fights this season. Start with right foot.
