Summary of the Super Cup final: Real Madrid - Barcelona 3:1 (Sport1)

Since the return from the World Cup break, Real Madrid is simply not the same team from the first part of the season.

The champion started the period after the return from Qatar with a difficult 0:2 against Valladolid, then scratched 0:1 in the cup, but then her luck ran out and the results stopped going in her direction.

A 2:1 loss to Villarreal and a penalty shootout against Valencia in the Super Cup semi-finals were just the preparation for tonight (Sunday), when Barcelona beat them in the final with a one-sided 1:3.

Carlo Ancelotti, who hasn't lost a final match since 2010, summed up his team's relegation display: "It's a difficult moment. We knew even before the game that we weren't at our best. We gave them two goals as a gift, we made mistakes."

"Hungry Barcelona exposed all of Real's problems, a shocking game from start to finish," stated in "Mundo Deportivo".

The Blancos have lost four of their last ten games in all competitions, and in Spain they liked to describe it as a "free fall".

Now more difficult games are expected for Real, which could degenerate them into a serious crisis.

As early as next Wednesday, Real will host Villarreal again, this time as part of the cup, and then they will go to an away game in Bilbao.

Thomas Roncero, the "AS" journalist known for his sympathy for Real, did not have mercy: "At least we have Thibaut Courtois, what a shocking game. This is the worst version of Real in recent years. A team without energy, power and ambition. The defense is terrible, it was not Looks like a Clasico. Real will have to look in many directions in the summer, the team needs to be refreshed, it's a super fiasco."

Roncero also sent a message to Vinicius Jr., who has been struggling to express himself recently: "He has completely lost concentration. He must come to his senses because he is a key player, without him it is half a team."

As mentioned, Courtois was the only one in the losing ranks who received warm words ("Prevented three more goals from Barcelona", and another player who was in the spotlight is the stopper Eder Militau: "He had a very difficult time stopping Robert Lewandowski. He is not the stable stopper he was at the beginning of the season and this is bad news for Real"

. The loss, it could be that all Real needs is one important victory to get back on track, as implied by the words of the ex Frederic Miatovic: "The last games have affected Real. The more confidence they have, the better they play."
