Real Madrid became the Spanish Super Cup 2017 champions after beating the rival Barcelona on Wednesday and added another trophy in their account. After winning the first controversial leg by 3-1 at Camp Nou.
Real Madrid secured a 2-0 win over Barcelona at Santiago Bernabéu, in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was suspended for pushing the referee after a red card was issued in the first leg.
With Neymar now moved to PSG, Barcelona’s attack is somewhat not upto the mark and appeared to be off synchroization during the first half. It was a frustrating night for Ernesto Valverde’s team and fans.

On the other hand Zinedine Zidane’s squad starts the league season with tons of momentum and finished the Spanish Super Cup 2017 with a 5-1 aggregate advantage.
Here comes the player ratings for the match.
The Brazilian left back Marcelo showed tremendous display of the game. He assisted Benzema goal with an amazing cross which outplayed the performance of Barcelona. So we rated him as 9 for the performance in the match.
Kovacic is a fucking wizard yo
