In a very dominant display, Real Madrid put Manchester United to the sword and beat them 2-1 to lift the Super Cup.
Despite fielding two of its most expensive players – Paul Pogba bought from Juventus for £89million last year and £75million signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton, the Manchester United team was unable to beat the Real Madrid team, which brought a sublime level of play to their craft.
The Real Madrid team took the lead in the 24th minute with a goal from Casemiro. The player properly anticipated the flight of a floated pass from his team-mate, Dani Carvajal with a controlled, first-time finish with his left foot past David De Gea.
The second Real Madrid goal was scored by Isco in the 52nd minute, after a master class in team by the Real Madrid Team.
Manchester United pulled one back through new signing Lukaku but it was a little too late, as Real Madrid emerged as winners of the Super cup.
In the post-match interview, Mourinho said, ‘We fought really until Cristiano (Ronaldo) got onto the pitch and I have to say that I’m really happy because although we lost a game and we lost a cup, we didn’t lose the season.
‘The season is here, the season started today but our Premier League starts on Sunday for us and we are better now than when we were last season when we won the Europa League.’
