David Alaba and Karim Benzema each scored once as Real Madrid defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 to win the UEFA Super Cup for the seventh time.
The UEFA Super Cup was won by Real Madrid on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to goals from Karim Benzema and David Alaba. Frankfurt posed a threat, especially in the first half, but Madrid’s expertise and individual strength carried them to victory, as they frequently did throughout their successful 2021–22 Champions League campaign.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said on Movistar TV, “It wasn’t an easy game; they were firmly rooted in their own half, but we managed to score and we handled it well afterwards. “You can’t expect the team to be at full strength at the beginning of the season, but we won and the season is off to a good start. I think it can help us get better outcomes, and athletes are more motivated when they win.”
With one more goals for the Spanish team than Raul, veteran French striker Karim Benzema had a very spectacular night. The only Real player with more goals than Benzema is Cristiano Ronaldo, who amassed 450.
“He is now eligible for the Ballon d’Or. Is there a question? No, for me “Ancelotti was added. With Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois facing up against Daichi Kamada in the 14th minute, Frankfurt got the better of the opening exchanges.
When Benzema allowed Vinicius to curl past Kevin Trapp in the penalty area, Madrid almost scored, but Tuta successfully cleared the ball off the line. Frankfurt launched multiple counterattacks while Madrid dominated possession, but Madrid eventually launched their own counterattack in the 37th minute. A diver Vinicius’ goal-bound attempt was stopped by Trapp’s fingertips, who then sent the ball out for a corner.
In the play that followed, Benzema and Casemiro connected at the right post. Before returning to an unmarked Alaba who scored from close range, the Brazilian sucked in a number of Frankfurt players and a diving Trapp.
After scoring, Madrid picked up the pace and had a chance to increase its lead to two goals in the 41st minute, but Benzema inexplicably dragged the ball wide.
