Barcelona beat Real Madrid to win the Spanish Super Cup.

Barcelona’s dominant team capitalized on three costly mistakes to beat bitter rivals Real Madrid 3-1 to win the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

In a match filled with some of football’s biggest stars, teenage sensation Gavi shone the brightest.

Los Blancos couldn’t handle the 18-year-old whose first-half goal saw him become the youngest scorer in the Spanish Super Cup, surpassing his current boss Xavi’s record.

Gavi opened the scoring for Barcelona in the 33rd minute, after a free pass from Antonio Rudiger helped the Catalan side to win back the ball in attack. Robert Lewandowski showed composure outside the penalty area to set up a midfielder who shot right past Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibault Courtois.

The provider became the goalscorer just 12 minutes later, when Barça’s sharp counter-attack ended with Lewandowski scoring Gavi’s assist from close range.

Real Madrid were toothless in the first half, not scoring a single shot on target. After the break, Carlo Ancelotti’s men seemed eager to keep a solid lead, but another mistake, this time by substitute Dani Ceballos, sent Gavi into the net before Pedri brought the score to three.

Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema pulled one back for Real Madrid in injury time, but it wasn’t enough to stop Xavi’s side from winning their first trophy since the Copa del Rey in 2021 and their first Super Cup title since 2018.
