Real Madrid also won the UEFA Cup thanks to Alaba's goal

Real Madrid also won the UEFA Cup thanks to Alaba’s goal

“It was clear that our goal was to come here and be successful. We are so glad we were able to do this,” Alaba said in an interview with ServusTV. “I met again today, it didn’t happen much and everything is nicer. We are on a very good path, so we can start the new season.”

For the 30-year-old defense minister, it was the fourth goal overall in the royal family’s dress and third in the Super Cup, for Real’s fifth Super Cup win in eight finals. Top scorer Karim Benzema added to the Spanish champion in the 65th minute. Glasner missed his second title with Frankfurt after the destroyer 1: 6 at the start of the Bundesliga against Bayern Munich.

The Austrian top featured the same starting lineup that won the final against Glasgow Rangers on penalties in May. Only Philip Kostik was missing, the 29-year-old winger on the cusp of a move to Juventus Turin. Former national team player Martin Hinterger, who ended his career in the summer, kept his fingers crossed in the stands.

“It will be a game for him to get into a fight with Karim Benzema,” said Glasner, who wanted to persuade his former student to return with a wink. “But he said he’s not at his best anymore, it will still be enough for penalties.” Hinteregger now plays as a forward for fifth-division team SGA Sirnitz. “Of course it’s annoying, but I’m also very satisfied at the moment,” the 29-year-old confirmed to ServusTV.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti also rewarded the winning final in a 1-0 win over Liverpool in May in the first competitive game of the new season. In Alaba’s defense as usual, Chelsea’s newcomer Antonio Rudiger was replaced late in the day. At the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, the Champions League winner had more game time. However, Glasner-Elf found his first big opportunity: Daiichi Kamada failed in a one-on-one match against Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who made a superb save (14).

On the other hand, Vinicius Junior, the golden scorer in the CL final against the “Reds”, found the first good opportunity for Ancelotti’s team. Eintracht defender Tota saved with a sliding tackle on the goal line (17). After about 20 minutes, it was time, and Alaba scored the well-deserved lead. Right before that, Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp had the upper hand against Vinicius Jr. Before the end of the first half whistle, Benzema missed the initial decision with a long shot (41).

After changing sides, Trapp had to distinguish himself from Vinicius’ skewed shot (55). Eintracht showed a solid performance, held up well, only in the last third he lacked penetrating ability. Real Madrid remained the most dangerous team. Casemiro, who was named man of the match, hit the crossbar after an hour. Shortly thereafter, Benzema did better after Vinicius’ cross, but Trapp looked bad when the goal was saved.
