Full time: Real Madrid 2-1 Manchester United - Real Madrid win the Super Cup

Real Madrid retained the Champions League in June and two months late they keep hold of the Super Cup, edging past Europa League winners Manchester United.

Casemiro and Isco scored in either half before Romelu Lukaku pulled one back. United had chances but Real outclassed the Premier League side for long periods and they deserved their win.


United throwing the ball into the box whenever possible but Real are dealing with it ably. Real have a free-kick deep in the attacking half now. Surely they will run down the clock.


De Gea keeps United in it as Asensio's swept shot is beaten away.


Seven minutes added on in Skopje. Fellaini heads goalwards but Navas holds on. Can United force extra time?

Marcus Rashford lines up a free-kick from 25 yards but he skies the effort high and wide. Five minutes remaining.


Cristiano Ronaldo is on for the final eight minutes for his first appearance since the Champions League final. Surprising to see him but the fans in attendance are elated.


Chance for United to draw level blown by Marcus Rashford. The England man goes clear in the left-hand channel but Navas gets across to save and turn the ball behind.


Marouane Fellaini actually came off worse after that collision and he needs a bandage or two before returning to his feet. Around 10 minutes of normal time remaining, plus what will be plenty of added time.


We have resumed and United are back on the attack but Fellaini can't keep his header down as Sergio Ramos - who takes a hit for his troubles - puts him off.


Mid-way into the second half and we have our second scheduled water break of the game. United a much greater threat in this game since they pulled one goal back, with Madrid - who are a week or so behind their opponent with regard to preparing for the new season - have tired.

Lukaku joins some illustrious company.


GOAL! Real Madrid 2-1 Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku)

Well now. Real hit the bar at one end and United pull one back at the other. Matic's drive is parried by Navas and Lukaku pounces to halve the deficit. Game on.


Gareth Bale strikes the bar as Real continue to toy with United. This game has gone from mildly competitive to completely one-sided. Just a matter of how many now.


Fellaini on and Herrera off for Manchester United. Perhaps he direct approach will follow.


What a chance for Unite to bite back. Pogba's header is pushed out by Navas and on the rebound Lukaku smashes over. Big moment for the debutant and he's missed by quite a distance.


GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 Manchester United (Isco)

Even with 35 minutes remaining, that feels like that. Isco exchanges passes with Bale in the United box before slotting past De Gea. Zinedine Zidane is sat motionless on the bench and as well he might be, his team are on their way to another trophy.


De Gea keeping United in this one - where have we heard that before?

He claws away Kroos' effort from range. Real have picked up from where they left off in the first half.


Teams out for the second time in Skopje. Marcus Rashford in on for United, with Jesse Lingard, who was booked in the first half and largely poor, being replaced.

We're back underway in the second half.
