Real Madrid wins their fourth trophy of the year 2022 with UEFA Super Cup adding to the Champions League, La Liga and Spanish Super Cup.
Real Madrid’s first goal came from David Alaba, who slid the ball into an empty net after Casemiro deflected a ball away from the Frankfurt goalie and beat him to it in the air. The Austrian only needed to place the ball into an open net.
Then, in the 65th, Benzema scored a goal of his own. Vinicius Jr. found Benzema on the edge of the area after cutting into the penalty area from the left. The Frenchman didn’t make the best connection on the shot, and Trapp ought to have saved it, but the ball still found its way into the goal.
The Los Blancos won the UEFA Super Cup in Helsinki as the German team played the entire game without any teeth.
Carlo Ancelotti’s achievement in winning the Super Cup for the fourth time in his career was also historic. Past Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, he is the only manager to have won the trophy that many times.
Twice as the manager of Real Madrid and twice as the manager of AC Milan, Ancelotti won the Super Cup championship.
