REAL MADRID BEAT Sevilla 3-2 in the European Super Cup final in rainy Trondheim tonight thanks to a brilliant individual last minute of extra-time clincher from Dani Carvajal.

Madrid had needed a Sergio Ramos equaliser in the 93rd minute to force extra time, after Yevhen Konoplyanka’s 72nd-minute penalty looked set to win it for Europa League champions Sevilla.

Marco Asensio had given Madrid the lead with a brilliant strike before Franco Vazquez equalised shortly before half-time.

Zinedine Zidane’s Madrid were not at full strength, with neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Gareth Bale, nor Toni Kroos, involved and both Luka Modric and Karim Benzema coming off the bench in the second half at the Lerkendal Stadion.
