NEWS | 12/08/2019Real Madrid clinched the title in Cardiff against Sevilla.
The forward opened the scoring half an hour in, turning in a fine Bale cross from the left-hand side. In the second half Cristiano Ronaldo went on to put the tie to bed with a superb shot across goal to beat Beto. The victory saw the madridistas lift the trophy twelve years on from their first European Super Cup win.
Kroos made his debut

It was also a special match for Bale, who won a trophy in his native Cardiff. In 2017, the Welshman went on to repeat the feat, when he lifted La Duodécima in the same venue.
