Madrid beats Atletico in shootout, wins Spanish Super Cup

Real Madrid has beaten Atletico Madrid in a penalty shootout to win the new-look Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia.

Madrid won Sunday’s shootout 4-1 after the final ended 0-0 after extra time.

Dani Carvajal, Rodrygo, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos all converted their spot kicks for Madrid.

Atletico’s Saul Niguez missed his first penalty and Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois blocked the second attempt by Thomas Partey. Kieran Trippier converted for Atletico.

Madrid played the final five minutes of added time with 10 men after Federico Valverde was shown a direct red for fouling Alvaro Morata when he only had Courtois to beat.

Madrid also beat Atletico on penalties in the 2016 Champions League final.
