Diego Costa Scores Twice As Atletico Madrid Defeat Real Madrid 4-2 In UEFA Super Cup Clash
Real Madrid began life without Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane with defeat in the first ever Uefa Super Cup derby as Atletico Madrid scored twice in extra time.
Two excellent late goals from Koke and Saul sealed victory for Atletico after the game ended 2-2 in normal time.
It was Real’s first match since Ronaldo signed for Juventus for £99m in the summer and Zidane was replaced as manager by former Spain coach Julen Lopetegui.
Koke’s smart finish and Saul’s sensational 16-yard volley in extra time helped Europa League holders Atletico win their third Super Cup in as many appearances.
Diego Costa also scored twice in normal time, thumping in the opener after 49 seconds and tapping in another after the interval.
