Manchester United and real Madrid faced of in one of football’s most epic encounter so far this year. The super cup match which is played between the winners of the two uefa European competitions that is the Champions League and the European League.
Unlikethe preseason match were both teams did faced each other three week ago (Manchester United claiming victory after penalty shoot-out), Real Madrid were the giants and Manchester United going into the game as the under dogs.
Real Madrid controlled the whole precidings of the first half, right from the kick off whistle. Real Madrid monopolised possession and nearly took an early lead when Gareth Bale sent an instinctive shot narrowly over the bar.
Defensive midfielder Casemiro then crashed a diving header against the bar.
Manchester United also had their moments during the first half, Paul Pogba shot aimlessly instead of giving a pass to Micki and a wonderful counter attack, but then it was real Madrid who were in front around the 23rd minute, when casimero slot home a wonderful through pass from bale with his right foot.
Real Madrid also went ahead to double their lead shortly after half time at the 54th minute when benzema’s pass found Isco who engaged in a one two with bale before sloting it past David Degea.
Manchester United seems to half some how rejuvenated themselves after Marcus Rashford and Maroon Fellani were broughtt on, replacing Jesse Lingard and Andre Herrera. One time world record signing Paul Pogba soon announce his present with a beautiful headed which navas could only help but punch out to lukaku who was less than seven yards aways. Lukaku couldn’t bury it into the net. Yes from such a range nobody believed Romero lukaku could miss a seater.
New summer signing and Serbian international, namanji matic was outstanding as he provided the balance that force Manchester United to cause several treats in the second half.
Manchester United’s had work was soon repaid when matic shot which was poorly cleared by navas found lukaku who didn’t waste time to slot in into the bottom corner. Manchester United soon changed things using long passed all directed towards fellani and could have leveled up the score line as rashford came so close to making it two in the 80th minute. World best footballer christiano Ronaldo came on as the last substitute for real Madrid at the 83rd minute in place of benzema.
Real Madrid held on as seven minutes of extra time was added due to injuries and water break. Eventually it was full time whistle… Real Madrid couldn’t help but celebrate as they have now won the super cup in successive years.
