Real Madrid Beat Athletic 2-0 to Claim Super Cup Title

INTERNATIONAL: Real Madrid wins Spanish Super Cup after goals from Luka Modric and Karim Benzema earn a 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, January 16. It’s Real Madrid first trophy of the season.

Madrid have lifted the 2021/22 Spanish Super Cup, defeating Athletic Club 2-0 in the final courtesy of a Luka Modrić wonder strike, a Karim Benzema penalty and a Thibaut Courtois penalty save.

Real has taken the lead in the 38th minute after Rodrygo has sprinted past two defenders before passing to Modric, who rifled a shot into the back of the net.

Benzema has extended their lead in the second half with a penalty after the video assistant referee has spotted a handball from Yeray Alvarez inside the area.

Real were reduced to 10 men three minutes from time after Eder Militao was sent off for a goalline handball.

Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois then has brilliantly stopped Raul Garcia's penalty kick with his left foot in the dying seconds.
