NEWS | 12/08/2018Real Madrid won the title in Cardiff against Sevilla.
The Portuguese forward opened the scoring on the half hour mark by netting after a great cross from Bale from out on the left. In the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo killed off the match with a powerful cross shot, leaving Beto stranded. The Madridistas raised this trophy twelve years after their first UEFA Super Cup.

It was also a special game for Bale, who won a title in Cardiff, his hometown. In 2017, the Welshman would repeat this experience in the Duodécima winning final.
