A remarkable solo Dani Carvajal goal won the Super Cup for Real Madrid, the right back dancing through to settle an engrossing contest in the 119th minute and inflict yet another defeat in the competition on Sevilla.
Madrid started brightly and were rewarded in spectacular fashion midway through the opening period. Twenty-year-old Marco Asensio, making his first European appearance, picked up possession 25 metres out and curled a shot into the top corner.
Franco Vázquez levelled shortly before half-time, squeezing a left-footed effort beyond the reach of Kiko Casilla, and Sevilla looked to have it won with 18 minutes left as Vitolo was tripped by Ramos. Yevhen Konoplyanka stepped up to send Casilla the wrong way from the spot.
Not for the first time, Sergio Ramos was Madrid’s stoppage-time saviour, nodding in a Lucas Vázquez cross with seconds remaining. Extra time started with Sevilla losing Timothée Kolodziejczak to a second yellow card and Madrid’s pressure was nearly rewarded but another Ramos header was ruled out.
Sergio Rico’s fine stop from Lucas Vázquez looked to have set up penalties, but Carvajal cut through the Sevilla defence to settle matters at the last.
