Skopje: The UEFA Super Cup had concluded with the reigning champions Real Madrid lifting the trophy yet again. It is the third time they have won it in the past 4 years. From the starting whistle itself it was very evident the difference in skill between the UEFA winners and the Europa winners. Once Madrid found their stride, Manchester United could simply not keep up. The link up plays between the Madrid center proved too much for the Red Devils. A midfield of Modric, Casemiro, Kroos and Isco is simply unfair to have as they bossed their way to a 2-1 victory. The scoreline could be even more devastating as the Los Blancos hit the wood work twice.
Casemiro gave Real the early lead with a controversial goal followed in the second half by a link up play between Bale and Isco. United quickly responded with a Lukaku and even though they pressed well, they did not match the 33 time La Liga winners.
