Costa Breaks UEFA Record in Super-Cup Win Over Real Madrid
The game which was Julen Lopetegui’s competitive bow for Madrid ended in a loss, and was the first competitive game for the Club since Ronaldo left for Juventus earlier in the summer.
The previous record was held by Banega who scored in the 3rd minute during Sevilla’s game against Barcelona in the 2015 which ended 5-4 in favour of Barcelona.
Karim Benzema levelled before the break, heading home a Gareth Bale’s cross.
Real took the lead in the 63rd from the penalty spot which was slotted home by Ramos, but Costa stuck again to level matters and force extra time.
In extra time, Saul Niguez and Koke scored for Diego Simeone’s men, to win the match and put the game beyond Real Madrid.
