Real Madrid beat Sevilla to lift the European Super Cup

Dani Carvajal scored a memorable 119th-minute winner to hand Real Madrid a 3-2 victory over Sevilla in the European Super Cup at the Lerkendal Stadion in Norway last night.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side looked to be on course for a trophy in his first competitive match in charge of Sevilla after Franco Vazquez and Yevhen Konoplyanka had cancelled out Marco Asensio’s stunning opener.

However, Sergio Ramos rescued extra time in the 93rd minute before Carvajal stole the win with a fine solo effort to fire his side to glory.

Madrid went into the match without the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos following their Euro 2016 exploits, but that didn’t prevent them from making a quick start and Ramos was the first to threaten with a header in the seventh minute.
