Atletico Madrid defeat Real, lift Spanish Super Cup
August 23 , 2014
Atletico Madrid beat their more fancied rivals Real Madrid to lift the Spanish Super Cup with an aggregate score of 2-1.
Mario Mandzukic scored the sole goal of the night as Atletico won the match 1-0.
Colombia international James Rodriguez, who won the Golden Boot in the 2014 Brazil World Cup, came closest to scoring for Real. But other Real stars such as Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo hardly made an impression.
