Real Madrid vs Barcelona LIVE!

Barcelona were crowned Spanish Super Cup champions after goals from Gavi, Robert Lewandowski and Pedri earned them a 3-1 win over bitter rivals Real Madrid in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. They took the lead in the 33rd minute after Real defender Antonio Rudiger passed across his own area to Sergio Busquets, who began a move that ended with Gavi all alone inside the box to score with a precise left-foot strike.

Lewandowski extended the lead 12 minutes later on the counter when Frenkie de Jong found Gavi, who ghosted in behind Real's defensive line. He sprinted through the left channel before putting it on a plate for the Polish striker, who tapped into the back of the empty net.

Once again a costly mistake allowed Barcelona to score. Substitute Dani Ceballos lost the ball in midfield and Gavi sprinted forward and crossed for Pedri to fire point-black into the empty net. Karim Benzema scored a consolation goal for Real in added time, striking home on the rebound after Marc-Andre ter Stegen denied his first attempt.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona highlights

  • GOAL! Lewandowski scores before break

  • GOAL! Pedri makes it three

64 mins: Ancelotti turns to his bench again and Ceballos will soon enter the fray. Lots of star power among the Madrid subs but not many players in form, at the peak of their game.

Benzema, though, looks to force the issue with a nice passing move just succumbing to Barcelona pressure.

20:22 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: Not seen a lot from Pedri today and he pings a skewed pass into the referee’s midriff. A drop ball continues their spell of possession.

20:18 , Marc Mayo

58 mins: End to end now, a fine game of football!

Dembele’s latest run is snuffed out as Balde picks it up and nearly picks out Gavi in the box.

31 mins: Mendy booked for felling Dembele on the edge of the box. The winger’s pace doing the business, there.

19:31 , Marc Mayo

20 mins: Back up the other end, Militao blocks De Jong’s drive well and Balde fires a first time cross which evades everyone.

It may have been intended as a shot but it was hardly the worst cross in the world, in fact.

Real Madrid chance!

19:19 , Marc Mayo

19 mins: Better from Los Blancos as a good Mendy cross picks out Benzema, who places a trademark header across goal and only just wide!

19:18 , Marc Mayo

18 mins: Ancelotti is naturally as cool as a cucumber but even the Italian is starting to bark some instructions from the touchline to try and sharpen up his Real charges.

A spell of possession now to take the edge off this Clasico.

Barcelona chance!

19:07 , Marc Mayo

6 mins: Busquets clipped by Kroos and a lovely free-kick is chipped to the far post as Araujo evades his marker...

He just can’t make serious contact from only a couple of yards out!

Xavi nonplussed by records

18:34 , Marc Mayo

As he chases his first Barcelona trophy as a coach, Xavi has insisted he is not concerned by Carlo Ancelotti’s record of not losing a final since 2010.

“I see Real Madrid in the same way that I always have - they're strong everywhere,” Xavi said. “They're well organised tactically, and strong.

“They have players who can make a difference and are a really strong opponent. They're the domestic and European champions. Real Madrid are Real Madrid and they have an extra level in finals.

“We are very motivated and have that little bit extra because it's Real Madrid. Everything would change with a trophy in the cabinet, but Real Madrid are dangerous even if they don't play well.”

Carlo Ancelotti taking it game by game

Winning football matches, not trophies, the message from the effervescently calm Carlo Ancelotti ahead of the game.

The Real Madrid boss said: “We're not thinking about winning every title.

“We're simply focused on competing in every competition and in every game. Now we have to think about this match and this title that we're playing for. We shouldn't get carried away with more difficult things.

“We have to take it one step at a time and head into the closing stretch of the season in a good position.”
