Real Madrid Vs Barcelona:– Real Madrid has one hand on the Spanish Super Cup trophy following an impressive 3-1 win over Barcelona in the first leg at Camp Nou on Sunday, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the winner and getting a red card.
It was a Gerard Pique own goal that gave Real Madrid the lead in the second half, but Lionel Messi equalized from the penalty kick spot to get the hosts back in it before a wild, unpredictable finish.
Ronaldo came off the bench to score this brilliant winner in the 80th minute, only to then be sent off two minutes later.
Ronaldo took his shirt off after the goal and got a yellow card, then he received another yellow just two minutes later for what the officials deemed as diving, giving the star red card. This was his first red card in in 28 Clasicos.
Despite playing with 10 men, Madrid was not satisfied and in counter attack Marco Asensio scored last and final goal from the almost same spot from where Ronaldo scored the goal and put the score to 3-1 lead in the 90th minute.
It’s a great result for Real Madrid, but Barcelona still has a little hope considering Ronaldo is suspended for Wednesday’s second leg. Real Madrid is the always favourite at home.
