The final of the 38th round of the Supercopa de Espana took place last night between

Real Madrid

, which ended in a 2-0 victory for Los Blancos.

Luka Modric in the 38th minute and Karim Benzema in the 52nd minute from the penalty spot scored two goals for Real Madrid in this game to defeat the defending champions and win the Supercopa de Espana for the twelfth time. The game had two other important events, the first of which was the dismissal of Real Madrid defender Eder Militao in the 87th minute and the loss of Bilbao's penalty in the 89th minute.

Real Madrid celebrated their twelfth title in the Supercopa de Espana, minimizing their distance from Barcelona as the most decorated team in the tournament, who neither won La Liga nor the Copa del Rey last season. In fact, the team and


participated in the four-way tournament of the Supercopa de Espana as runners-up in La Liga and Copa del Rey respectively.

Ancelotti made sarcastic remarks to reporters after the game, claiming that his team would win the cup despite playing ugly. He said: 

"I am very pleased, happy, and we continue. We are going to compete, but being here is lucky. It is an honour to train this team and this club. By the way, we are going to compete for the other competitions.

"We have the strength to fight for all competitions. This is a team I like to watch play. We don't have just one way of playing, but rather different ones and that is the strength of this team.

"I'm not tired of winning, because the last one was a [German] Super Cup with Bayern and I hadn't won for a long time.

"Winning is the end of the job. Winning means you've done a good job. Sometimes it isn't. I've done a good job at Napoli or Everton and I haven't won anything.

"When you win a lot, you think you're the most handsome, that you play the best football in the world and the sacrifice goes down a bit,"

Ancelotti added.

"Fortunately, the sacrifice of our players is high. I think my players are not handsome … they are very ugly."
