Benzema & Alaba scored as Real Madrid defeat Eintracht Frankfurt to win their 5th UEFA Super Cup in history on Wednesday night in Helsinki.
David Alaba’s goal makes the difference as Real Madrid lead after the first 37 minutes.
Benzema doubled the Spanish giants’ lead after the break with a first-time finish from Vinicius Jr’s cross to move second on Real’s all-time goalscoring list.
He overtakes Raul with 323 goals and is behind only Cristiano Ronaldo who has 450 goals.
Real Madrid has joined AC Milan and Barcelona as the most successful teams in UEFA Super Cup history with their fifth triumph in the competition.
Twenty-four teams from 12 different countries have lifted the UEFA Super Cup down the years.
Real Madrid claimed their fifth title in 2022, their fourth in nine years, with a 2-0 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt to join AC Milan and Barcelona as the most successful sides in the competition’s history.
Madrid’s victory in Helsinki secured Spain’s 16th title, extending their lead over England and Italy (both nine).
Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who beat Liverpool to win the Champions League in May, took the lead when David Alaba tapped into an empty net, with Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp stranded following Casemiro’s header back across goal.
Frankfurt, making their Super Cup debut, had moments of their own – the best when Daichi Kamada was sent through early on, but the Europa League winners looked second best once Real hit their stride.
Real Madrid Coach, Carlo Ancelotti has become the manager with the most UEFA Super Cup titles (4), overtaking Pep Guardiola (3).
