Real Madrid 2-0 Barcelona (agg 5-1): Marco Asensio nets stunner and Karim Benzema hits target as Zinedine Zidane’s men clinch Spanish Super Cup

Real Madrid beat Barcelona

Cristiano Ronaldo looked down from his private box, Gareth Bale watched from the bench, and on the pitch – showing no signs of missing either of them – Real Madrid destroyed a Barcelona side to win the Spanish Super Cup.

Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele’s prices can be cranked up a little further after this because Barcelona’s board have no choice but to strengthen before the window shuts. Today they will present former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho, not quite the first post-Neymar signing their supporters had in mind.

Real Madrid were without their two most expensive players as Ronaldo began a five-game ban for pushing a referee and Bale was dropped to the bench to make way for 21-year-old Marco Asensio.
