Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in a one-sided match to clinch the Spanish Super Cup title. For Real, Luka Modric (38th minute) and Karim Benzema (52nd minute) have scored 1-1. This was 36-year-old Luka's first goal of the season and he has now become the oldest footballer to score in super cup history.
In the title clash played at the King Fahad Stadium in Saudi Arabia, Real's team has been weighing heavily from the start and did not provide Bilbao with an opportunity to recuperate. Though there was an occasion when Bilbao got a penalty opportunity in the 87th minute, they completely failed to capitalise it. At the same time, Real's victory has also been ensured.
According to media reports, Real has clinched the trophy for the 12th time. They are now just one win away from equaling Barcelona's (13) record for most times winning the title.
