Real Madrid Beat Barcelona In Super Cup First Leg

Real Madrid were 3-1 winners over Barcelona in their Super Cup first leg on Sunday night.  Gerard Pique slid Marcelo’s cross into his own net before Lionel Messi levelled from a penalty. Ronaldo, who was a substitute, restored Real’s lead when he ran from halfway before smashing an effort home.

He was booked for taking off his shirt to celebrate and shown a second yellow shortly after for a dive – before Marco Asensio scored an excellent third.

Ronaldo felt he should have had a penalty when he went down under pressure from Samuel Umtiti, and appeared to shove the referee in the back after he was shown the red card.

Real host Barca in Wednesday’s second leg at 22:00 BST.
