Weekend Review: Real Madrid win Supercopa, United in turmoil, Lewandowski scores again
Over the weekend, some of Europe's biggest clubs had mixed fortunes, with Real
Madrid winning silverware and Manchester United having more off-field issues.
Meanwhile, the Copa del Rey saw controversy and victories for Manchester City and Bayern Munich.
Yes, it's only the Spanish Supercopa and more trophies will be required at the
end of the season, but Carlo Ancelotti deserves credit for building a
serious team that plays to its strengths and gets the job done.
The 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Supercopa final in Saudi Arabia on Sunday was unsurprising,
as were the players who contributed the most. Luka Modric and Karim Benzema
scored, and Thibaut Courtois saved Eder Militao's late penalty for handball.
