Real Madrid won a 12th Super Cup title as goals from Luka Modric and Karim Benzema secured victory against Athletic Bilbao in Saudi Arabia.
Modric curled in a brilliant strike to give Real Madrid a first-half lead at Riyadh’s King Fahd International Stadium.
Benzema then made it 2-0 with a penalty after the video assistant referee awarded a spot-kick for handball.
The striker’s shot had hit Yeray Alvarez, whose arms were raised as he made the block.
Real were also penalised for a handball late on as Eder Militao was sent off for blocking a shot and Bilbao were awarded a penalty, however, keeper Thibaut Courtois produced a superb save to keep out Raul Garcia with his leg.
