Real Madrid vs Manchester United, UEFA Super Cup: Real Madrid beat Manchester United 2-1 in Skopje, Macedonia to retain their UEFA Super Cup crown. Last year they had beaten Sevilla to lift the trophy.
Real Madrid beat Manchester United 2-1 to lift the European Super Cup for the fourth time on Tuesday as they became the first team to retain the trophy since AC Milan in 1990.
It was Real who took the lead in the 24th minute through Casemiro who managed to beat the offside trap to score (although replays showed it could have gone either way). Los Blancos then doubled their lead in the second half when Isco played a one-two with Gareth Bale to slip through the United defence and score past David De Gea.
United’s 75 million pounds ($97.40 million) striker Romelu Lukaku got his first competitive goal for his new club to reduce the deficit in the 62nd with a simple finish on the rebound after earlier wasting a similar opportunity.

This is looking like the Spanish, European and world champions against the sixth best team in England.

If you asked Fellaini to smuggle a bag of coke through an airport, this is definitely how he'd do it. pic.twitter.com/RPPROLaWDO
