Real Madrid 3-2 Sevilla (aet)
(Asensio 21, Ramos 90+3, Carvajal 119; Vázquez 41, Konoplyanka 72p)
A remarkable Dani Carvajal solo goal won the UEFA Super Cup for Real Madrid, the right-back dancing through to settle an engrossing contest in the 119th minute and inflict yet another defeat in the competition on Sevilla.
Madrid had started brightly and were rewarded in spectacular fashion midway through the opening period. Twenty-year-old Marco Asensio, making his first European appearance, picked up possession 25 metres out and curled a shot into the top corner.
Franco Vázquez levelled shortly before half-time, squeezing a left-foot effort beyond the reach of Kiko Casilla, and Sevilla looked to have it won with 18 minutes left after Vitolo was tripped by Sergio Ramos. Yevhen Konoplyanka stepped up to send Casilla the wrong way from the spot.
Not for the first time however, Ramos was Madrid's stoppage-time saviour, nodding in a Lucas Vázquez cross with seconds remaining. Extra time then began with Sevilla losing Timothée Kolodziejczak to a second yellow card, and Madrid's pressure nearly bore fruit but another Ramos header was ruled out.
Yet just when Sergio Rico's fine stop from Lucas Vázquez seemed to have set up penalties, Carvajal cut through the Sevilla defence to settle matters at the last.
