Barcelona Crowned Spanish Super Cup Champions After Dominant Win Over Real Madrid

FC Barcelona have been crowned Spanish Supercopa champions after a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in the final on Sunday night. The Blaugrana were the better team for virtually all of El Clásico, created big chances and were extremely efficient in front of goal to beat their main rivals and win the first title of Xavi Hernández’s career as Barça manager.

The Catalans dominated the match from the very beginning and had the first big chance of the half on a rocket from Robert Lewandowski that was deflected onto the post by Thibaut Courtois, and Alejandro Balde narrowly missed the target on the rebound. But it was only a matter of time before Barcelona broke the deadlock and it finally arrived in the 33rd minute when Sergio Busquets won the ball back, Pedri passed it to Lewandowski who quickly moved it to Gavi inside the box, and the youngster showed great poise to use his left foot and fire it home past Courtois.

Barça then got a crucial second goal just before halftime as Frenkie De Jong played a perfect, line-breaking pass to find Gavi all alone on the left wing, and he once again was poised and composed to wait for the right moment and give Lewandowski an easy tap-in for the second. The Blaugrana then put the game beyond doubt in the 69th minute when Gavi produced his second assist of the night with a perfect cross to find Pedri all alone for a tap-in at the far post.

Real Madrid looked defeated after the third goal, and Ancelotti made more attacking changes trying to create a spark that left the team weaker in midfield and more vulnerable at the back. They did have a few good moments and Marc-André ter Stegen made important saves, but Barça were never in real trouble as the final whistle came shortly after.

This was a great all-around performance from a very focused, mature, intense team that were better than their opponents in every department. Barça deserved to win the trophy, and they’ve done it against Madrid. What a sweet Sunday!
