SKOPJE: Isco's goal is a divider when Real Madrid survived the rise of Manchester United to win 2-1 and lift the UEFA Super Cup in the capital of Macedonia, earlier this morning.

Casemiro put the defending champions ahead in the 24th minute on a hot night near the Balkans and Isco doubled their advantage seven minutes from the second half through Gareth Bale.

The difference between Real - with Cristiano Ronaldo appearing as a late substitute - and the Europa League champions United who are concerned about Jose Mourinho will favor the Spanish giants with bigger networks.

However, Romelu Lukaku regained his position after an hour, marking his first competitive appearance for United and big improvement from the Premier League club at the end of the game.

The 2-1 streak remained until the end of the match with the Zinedine Zidane squad won the trophy for the second consecutive time and four times as a whole.

This is the eighth time in the nine-year club from Spain to win the Super Cup.
"All because of the hard work we know there are many talented players in the team and they are also very hungry for success, they always want more," Zidane said in a match.
"Today is almost a perfect match, and the first half is amazing." - AFP
