Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt result: Benzema scores, Los Blancos win another UEFA Super Cup in comprehensive performance

 

Real Madrid looked in prime midseason form, taking on the mercurial German team Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2022 UEFA Super Cup for a two-goal win. Goals by David Alaba and Karim Benzema.

Madrid’s fifth win at this year’s UEFA Super Cup all-time, that is a battle between the last season’s Champions League title-winner against Europa League champions. The win will bring Los Blancos level with Barcelona and AC Milan at the top of the winners’ chart for the competition.

This Super Cup win is also Carlo’s sixth in the span of his career, including four as a coach and two as an athlete.

The Spanish giants appeared ready to go into the new season fighting Frankfurt’s ferocious pressing and creating opportunities up forward, while reducing the risk in the back. David Alaba opened the scoring in the first half , scoring an easy tap-in from an angle, and Benzema began his campaign by scoring in the second half.

Frankfurt did not have many chances Frankfurt had few opportunities, as Daichi Kamada failed in their only chance of 14 minutes. In the following minutes, they were lacking overall, in the absence of their star player Filip Kostic.

Casemiro was the match’s top player, swarming across the field to stop the Frankfurt attack and to provide some danger up in the front too. The Brazilian played a head-on assistance for Alaba’s opener. He also struck the crossbar just after an hour.

Real Madrid open their La Liga season this weekend by playing a road match with newly-promoted Almeria on Sunday.
