The UEFA league Champions, Real Madrid bagged in another trophy after beating their fellow country men in Trondheim, Norway on Tuesday.

Champions League winners, Real took the lead through Marco Anensio who scored with a thunderous long-range strike. Anensio was one of the Real’s debutants on the day covering up for Tony Kroos who is taking a break after participating in the Euro 2016 tournament which was held in France.

Sevilla reacted in positive fashion and were rewarded in the 41st minute when Franco Vazquez, who joined from Palermo in July, levelled with a low, left-foot volley.

Europa league champions went in front with a penalty in the 72nd minute after Ramos brought down Vitolo.

Yevhen Konoplyanka, who had come on as a substitute five minutes earlier, sent Real goalkeeper Kiko Casilla the wrong way from the spot.

Sergio Ramos made it 2-2 to force the game into extra time before Carvajal won it for Real.

The Madrid right back went on a weavering run in the Sevilla half in the 119th minute before chipping the ball over goalkeeper Sergio Rico to score a winning goal.

The 24 year old told the media that this was an amazing victory after trailing for all the second half.

“We were trailing for all of the second half, but Real Madrid never give up and a goal in 90 minutes allowed us to become champions. Today we had a lot of players missing out but we have a great squad of homegrown players”, he said.

Real Madrid were missing key players, with Cristiano Ronaldo having been injured playing for Portugal in the Euro 2016 final, while Gareth Bale and Germany’s Toni Kroos and Pepe had extended breaks because of their involvement at the same tournament in France.

The Galacticos clinched the trophy for the third time while coach Zinedine Zidane became the fifth man to win the Super Cup as a player and manager, following in the footsteps of Carlo Ancelotti, Diego Simeone, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique.
