The UEFA Super Cup is played annually between the winners of the Champion’s League and the Europa League.Zidane’s Real Madrid beat Mourinho’s United 2- 1 with goals from Casemiro and Isco.
Cristiano Ronaldo came as a late substitute and kicked a desultory free kick over the bar shortly after having arrived on the field,but didn’t do very much else.
Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for United and they might have done a bit better if they had more time.They were just getting warmed up when the ref ended the game at 2 – 1.
Real Madrid became the first team to retain the trophy for two consecutive years since the year 1990.The last team to have done this are AC Milan way back in 1989 and 1990.
