It is quite a shocker that the Galacticos a team made from billions, Real Madrid couldn’t beat their city rivals Atletico Madrid for 2 legged Spanish Super Copa. The first leg at Real Madrid’s home ground Santiago Bernabeu ended as a 1-1 draw and Atletico were on away goal advantage coming into the second leg at Vincente Calderon Stadium of Atletico Madrid. The La Liga is starting this weekend and winning Spanish Super Cup would boost a lot of confidence and also bring a trophy early at the start of the season.
Atletico won the game 1-0 beating Real Madrid on aggregate of 2-1 and winning the Spanish Super Copa title. It was Mario Madzukic who scored at the second minute of the game. Angel Di Maria was left out of the squad which has increased a lot of speculation that his departure to Manchester United is imminent, while Ronaldo started on the bench due to injury concerns. Atletico have amazingly had really great top class strikers in the past and history has repeated that even after the departure of Diego Costa, Atletico Madrid has somehow found a great replacement in Mario Mandzukic alongside Griezmenn.
Diego Simeone has proved that he is a top class manager after winning last season’s La Liga finishing ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona and missing out on Champions’ League trophy against Real Madrid. This season Atletico again looked like they can pull off wonders like they have in recent years.
Carlo Ancelotti has to use his experience and motivate Real Madrid for La Liga. At this point selling Angel Di Maria might seem bad as Real Madrid just looks like they might actually miss Di Maria if he leaves even after spending a lot on Toni Kroos, and James Rodriguez.
