Real Madrid beats Manchester United to win Super Cup

  • Cristiano Ronaldo finally returns to training with Real Madrid teammates

Phil Jones will miss the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid despite Manchester United's ongoing appeal against his suspension - a two-match ban that could yet be extended by a game.

Casemiro hit the bar at the Philip II Arena with Tuesday's game still goalless, and Gareth Bale also struck the frame of the goal in the second half.

"I always say the Champions League is one thing and the Europa League is another, and the Champions League victor obviously has a different potential", said former Real coach Mourinho, whose team are back in Europe's elite club competition this season. I keep saying that. "And I think we're going to reach that level as a football team in the next couple of years".

Sergio Ramos has suggested Zinedine Zidane's knowledge of the Real Madrid dressing room has helped him to greater success than Jose Mourinho enjoyed at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, it was hard to adjudge if the Brazilian's half-volley finish should have been chalked off as Chris Smalling may have played him onside.

There have been suggestions in Spain that Madrid are willing to part company with the 28-year-old as they move for Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, giving hope to long-standing admirers United. We suffered a bit at the end against a powerful team, ' he said.

Non-OPEC production will get a health check later today when the Baker Hughes U.S. rig count is published at 1:00 p.m. Right now, we're going to treat the current selling as a much needed short-term correction.


Yet United's starting XI cost €417 million (S$667 million), compared to Real's €273 million. Momentum is now with Zidane and Valverde will be looking to inject some wind into Barca's sails after a disappointing end to last season and a hard summer in the transfer market. At Real Madrid every coach has great players to work with. We know that we have hard opponents, with another one coming on Sunday.

Real Madrid midfielder Isco has revealed he is "very close" to signing a new contract. Never. I wouldn't sell Cristiano if they paid his weight in gold.

Mourinho claims the silverware will mean more to the supporter than him, because medals "don't mean much" to him - even when his side win.

"Sometimes when I win, I don't keep the medals - so imagine when I lose!"
