Real Madrid beat bitter rivals Barcelona 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night to win the Spanish Super Cup 5-1 on aggregate.

Zinedine Zidane’s side were without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo while Gareth Bale was left on the bench, but it took them just four minutes to open the scoring.

Real dominated from then on, with Karim Benzema doubling the score shortly before half-time, when he cutely flicked the ball around defender Samuel Umtiti and finished from close-range.

Barcelona marginally improved in the second-half – with both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez hitting the woodwork – but they looked a shadow of their former title-winning selves.
