Atletico sink Real Madrid to win Super Cup

Ronaldo’s bicycle kick beats Bale’s in UEFA poll

Real Madrid will look to earn its first trophy following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Europa League winners took control of the game after a wonderful left-footed volley from Saúl Ñíguez and Koke guided in a fine fourth goal after another rapid breakaway.

This is to ward off potential interest from Real Madrid according to 'Corriere dello Sport'.

The first of the three goals scored by Tottenham's Christian Eriksen in Denmark's 5-1 win over the Republic of Ireland a World Cup qualifying play-off in Dublin is also included.

Eight minutes into the extra-time, Atletico found their go-ahead goal as Thomas Partey's cross found Saul Niguez, who rifled the ball into the top corner from just inside the box.

He further went on to add, talking about former manager Zinedine Zidane saying "Zidane did extraordinary work with incredible success but that is the past".

"These games have to be played with everything you have inside", Koke told reporters of facing Madrid in Tallinn.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois did not feature at all following his recent arrival from Chelsea, and nine of Real's starting line-up also started May's Champions League final win over Liverpool in Kiev. "This world-renowned competition exemplifies how sports can connect communities, so we look forward to helping fans watch these live matches together and are committed to working closely with our great partners at UEFA to deliver an innovative viewing experience".

Emerging star Marco Asensio did not do badly in Ronaldo's spot in attack, but Lopetegui sending on unproven youngster Borja Mayoral in extra time showed that Madrid have not yet fully covered the loss of the reigning Ballon d'Or victor.
