Los Blancos beat Barcelona again, this time at home, to win another title, their second at the start of this new season, after their UEFA Super Cup win over Manchester United earlier this month.
Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema both scored in the first half of the return leg of Spain’s Super Cup, that 2-0 remained until the end of the game, and in combination with Real Madrid’s clear 3-1 win at Camp Nou a few days earlier, crowned the Merengues new Super Cup titleholders.
We had to be prepared for the start of the season and in the end, we got two important trophies against two important teams. We have done very well to start the season. We have a lot. It is going to be very difficult but we are happy
Zinedine Zidane told reporters after the game, having won his seventh title as a Real Madrid coach, ever since taking over, early in 2016.
In the first half, we were spectacular. The intensity and pressure, and possession of the ball. The second half suffered a little because Barca attacked us
the Frenchman also said. As for his team’s dominance over Barcelona in both games, he was quick to say that he expects the Catalan side to be almost at the same level as his own team as the season progresses.
There will not be much difference with Barca. This starts again in La Liga. It’s going to be a difficult season
