Real Madrid vs Manchester United review
Real Madrid won the UEFA Super cup by beating Manchester United 2-1, midfielders Casemiro and isco both scored for Madrid, although Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for United, but it was not enough. Paul Pogba and Lukakau both missed somewhat easy goal scoring opportunities. Madrid have surely started season in a positive way, as they have already won their first trophy of the season.
United manager Jose Mourinho mentioned before the match, that there will be difference in quality between Champions League winners Madrid and Europa League winners United, and he was clearly proven correct. Madrid dominated possession, and Spaniard Isco was once again the man of the match. Isco was once again given free role by Zidane, which allowed him to pop up in important positions throughout the match, and it was difficult for United to mark him. Former United legend Paul Scholes said after the match ” It was a good opportunity for United to test themselves, to see where they stand because in Premier League they won’t be playing against quality teams such as Real Madrid.”

There were some positives to take away for United fom this defeat. Nemanja Matic put up good performance, as he was strong and made some key passes, which will surely please United fans. Marcos rashford was also good as he came in as a substitute, his pace, energy, movement and flair brought life into United’s attack. United are still looking for players in transfer market to strengthen their squad, and United fans will surely hope that new additions will help club to win trophies.
