The La Liga winner, Atletico Madrid have won the Spanish Super Cup thanks to the Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic who scored already in the 2nd minute of the match.
After the first-leg match three days at the Santiago Bernabeu where Simeone’s side drew 1-1, a 1-0 win at home was enough for Atletico to lift the Super Cup Trophy. Incredibly, this is the first victory at the Vicente Calderon stadium against Real Madrid for Atletico in the last 16 meetings, which spices this win even more. Atletico were a much better team and Carlo Ancelotti’s side didnt have an answer for Atletico’s aggressive and superb defense. Super Cup trophy is the fifth trophy for Diego Simeone on Atletico’s Bench.
Nervous match which ended with 2 red cards ( Simeone and Modric) and 10 yellow card was decided already in the 2nd minute when the Croat , Mandzukic scores his debut goal on assist on another face in Atletico’s Locker-room, Antoine Griezmann . Real Madrid had their chances in the first half, trough James Rodriguez, who wasnt accurate. Javi Garcia on the other side was close a few time to score a goal, but the 2nd minute score remained until the end and Simeone’s side have taken revenge for the Champions League final.
