UEFA Super Cup: Real Madrid 3 - Sevilla - 2 (Real Madrid wins Super Cup, first trophy in new season)

Real Madrid have kicked off their 2016/17 football season in grand style after a hard-fought  3-2 defeat of Sevilla at the UEFA Super Cup. The Super Cup is a one-match trophy contested between the most recent Champions League and Europa Cup winners in Europe.

2016 Champions League winners Real opened scoring with a 21st minute goal by Marco Asensio but Franco Vazquez and Yevheniy Konoplyanka banged one each for Sevilla keeping the scoreline at 1 – 2 until Sergio Ramos scored a much-needed equalizer for Real Madrid at 90 minutes, sending the game into extra time at 2 – 2.

Daniel Carvajal scored the 3rd goal for Real Madrid as the game was heading into a penalty shootout at the 119th minute.
