Super Cup: Spanish Giants Real Madrid Beat Barcelona FC 3 - 1

Spanish Giants Real Madrid show why they are European Champions as the beat Barcelona "without Neymar" 3 - 1 in an entertaining game which saw Madrid play in an unusual compactness which is not inherent to the style of play in Spain .

Regardless of how this game turned out, the only thing I am certain of is that Barcelona should be regretting letting Brazilian Neymar go to PSG. 

Cristiano Ronaldo scored and was then sent off as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 3-1 in the Spanish Super Cup first leg. Gerard Pique slid Marcelo's cross into his own net before Lionel Messi levelled from a penalty.

Ronaldo, who was a substitute, restored Real's lead when he ran from halfway before smashing an effort home. He was booked for taking off his shirt to celebrate and shown a second yellow shortly after for a dive - before Marco Asensio scored an excellent third.

Ronaldo felt he should have had a penalty when he went down under pressure from Samuel Umtiti, and appeared to shove the referee in the back after he was shown the red card. Real host Barca in Wednesday's second leg at 22:00 BST
