Real Madrid wins Su­per Cup

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Real Madrid eased to a 2-1 vic­tory over Manch­ester United to win the Su­per Cup on a hot night in Skopje, Mace­do­nia, on Tues­day, with goals in each half from Casemiro and Isco. Cris­tiano Ron­aldo watched most of the end-to-end ac­tion from the bench, while his team­mates out­classed United. Casemiro hit the bar with a header and fired a shot over the top be­fore scor­ing in the 24th minute. The Brazil­ian slid in for a left-foot fin­ish, served up by Dani Car­va­jal. Isco ex­tended the lead for Zine­dine Zi­dane’s Euro­pean cham­pi­ons with a cool shot in the 52nd, af­ter Gareth Bale helped him run through United’s de­fense. Mak­ing amends for an ear­lier miss, United’s new striker Romelu Lukaku made it 2-1 in the 62nd, beat­ing goal­keeper Key­lor Navas af­ter he blocked a pow­er­ful shot from Ne­manja Matic.
