Ronaldo-less Madrid win SuperCup

Asensio jubilates scoring for Madrid

Real Madrid consolidated on their first leg 3-1 advantage  over arch rivals Barcelona, beating them 2-0 at Santiago Bernabeu for an aggregate 5-1 victory to lift the Spanish SuperCup gir the tenth time.

Marco Asensio who scored a sensational blast on Sunday, had an encore, finding the Barcelona net in the 4th minute. Karim Benzema added the second goal for Real Madrid in the 38th minute.

There were no goals in the second half, though several attempts on either side hit the woodwork.

Madrid, playing without Gareth Bale, Isco and Ronaldo were  still able to dominate an Iniesta-less Barcelona in the match, 53-47, making people wonder whether the Catalans  were yet to get over the loss of Neymar to PSG.

Madrid also had more shots at goal than Barcelona.
