Real Madrid vs Frankfurt: As it happened, reaction

Despite a slow opening in Helsinki where a well-structured Frankfurt set out to make life difficult for the Spanish side, the first half quickly heated up when Thibaut Courtois was called into action to thwart Daichi Kamada. Vinícius Júnior showed his threat in the 17th minute when Karim Benzema redistributed Federico Valverde's cross into his stride, but Tuta launched himself along the goal line to deny the opener.

Kevin Trapp sprawled low to tip Vinícius Júnior's next attempt out for a corner in the 37th minute. However, Casemiro's subsequent delivery finally fell for Alaba to turn in the opener from close range.

Vinícius Júnior tested Trapp again early in the second half, before Casemiro's swerving strike from distance crashed off the woodwork, as Los Blancos continued to dictate in the second half. And in the 65th minute Benzema made it 2-0, as Madrid too easily passed their way through Frankfurt before their No9 slotted past Trapp.

The game opened up in the closing stages as Frankfurt pressed to get back into the tie. In an end-to-end finish Oliver Glasner's men gave their all, but the European champions proved too big of a challenge. With that, Real Madrid's dominant display earned them a record-equalling fifth Super Cup trophy.
