Real Madrid beat Sevilla 2-0 to take the UEFA Super Cup trophy on Tuesday at Cardiff City Stadium in Wales.

Cristiano Ronaldo put a disappointing World Cup behind him by scoring twice to win the UEFA Super Cup for Real Madrid with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Spanish rival Sevilla on Tuesday.

The world player of the year netted just once as Portugal made an early exit from Brazil, but the goal-scoring swagger returned in Madrid’s first competitive fixture since the Champions League final win in May.

Ronaldo swept the ball in at the far post in the 30th minute after racing onto Gareth Bale’s cross, and the forward powered in another four minutes into the second half after being set up by Karim Benzema.

The victory over the Europa League winners secured the first of a possible six trophies for Madrid this season.
