UEFA Super Cup: Real Madrid beat Manchester United 2-1 to retain title


Manchester United were outclassed as Spanish and European champions Real Madrid retained the Uefa Super Cup victory in a sweltering Skopje.

Madrid dominated from the start and led when Casemiro – who earlier hit the bar – slid in a half volley.

Romelu Lukaku scored a consolation for United but goals from Casemiro and Isco did the damage for last season’s Champions League winners in an entertaining final in Skopje.

They doubled their lead when Isco calmly slotted in from eight yards after a neat one-two with Gareth Bale, who started ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

New £75m striker Romelu Lukaku tapped in before Marcus Rashford scuffed wide.

Lukaku should have scored another in an up-and-down game from him, while Rashford had a great opportunity to equalise too but squandered great chances in the game.
