With a 3-1 victory over Real Madrid, Barcelona became the first team since the competition’s reorganization and relocation to Saudi Arabia to win the Spanish Super Cup.
In a lucrative deal for the Spanish football federation, Robert Lewandowski, Gavi, and Pedri each scored a goal on Sunday at King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh to give Barcelona its first Super Cup trophy since 2018 and the first since the tournament’s Final-Four format began in 2020.
It was also Barcelona’s first title since Lionel Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain and former player Xavi became coach in 2021. After receiving a pass from Lewandowski, Gavi scored from close range in the 33rd minute. Just before the end of the first half, Gavi assisted on a breakaway to double the lead.
In the 69th minute, Pedri scored from close range after another breakaway was set up by Gavi. Karim Benzema provided Madrid with a late consolation goal. Since 2014, this was Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti’s first final defeat. A record 14 times have Barcelona won the Super Cup. There are 12 Madrid players.
Sergio Busquets, captain of Barcelona, said that, this will reinforce us to keep fighting for more titles because they knew it was a chance they had to take, and they have lived through an era of changes at the FC Barcelona football club.
