Real Madrid defeated Frankfurt 2-0 in this year’s UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night.

David Alaba tapped into an empty net in the first half, before Karim Benzema connected with Vinicius Jr’s cutback after the break.


Speaking on Benzema’s replacement and possible Ballon d’Or winner, the President said, “Look at all the strikers we have, he won’t get sick, but if he does, we have so many strikers that it won’t be noticed.
