Real Madrid won the Spanish Super Cup by beating Athletic Bilbao 2-0 in Riyadh.
The team led by Carlo Ancelotti, who had eliminated Barcelona in extra time in the semifinals, thus won the first title of the season for Spain.
For the Italian coach this is a first in the trophy, which he adds to his international collection.
The Madrid team took the lead in the first half with Modric and doubled in the second half from a penalty with Benzema.
In the final, the Basques had the opportunity to shorten the penalty but Courtois saved Raul Garcia's shot.
Real now has 12 Super Cups on the showcase, one less than Barcelona, which remains the most successful team.
