Real Madrid Crush Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 to Lift UEFA Super Cup | Watch Highlights
Real Madrid earned a 2-0 win to add yet another UEFA Super Cup to their collection.
As reported by Goal, it was a vintage performance from Real Madrid, who got one goal from an extremely likely scorer and one from an unlikely source.
David Alaba opened the scoring in the first half with a simple finish from close range, with Karim Benzema providing the exclamation point to seal another trophy to bring home to Madrid.
The match will also be a memorable one for Aurelien Tchoaumeni and Antonio Rudiger, who made their competitive debuts for their new clubs.
With the win, Real Madrid have now equalled the record for most UEFA Super Cup wins with five. The other two teams to lift the trophy that many times? AC Milan and, of course, Barcelona.
Could it be anyone else? Benzema is in his Thanos phase: inevitable. It took him until midway into the second half, but he got his goal, picking up right where he left off last season.
In May, Carlo Ancelotti became the first manager to win the Champions League four times.
On Wednesday, he became the first manager to win the UEFA Super Cup four times, breaking a tie with Pep Guardiola, who won it twice with Barca and once with Bayern.
