Real Madrid beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 to win the 2022 UEFA Super Cup at Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium on Wednesday night as Karim Benzema moved past Raul into second on the Spanish club’s all-time scoring list behind leader Cristiano Ronaldo.

The sides traded good chances in the early stages of the annual match between the winner of the Champions and Europa League, with Thibaut Courtois doing well to snuff out Daichi Kamada‘s chance for Frankfurt on the break and Vinicius Junior‘s goal-bound shot for Madrid swept off the line by Almamy Toure.

Carlo Ancelotti’s LaLiga winners took the lead shortly before half-time through David Alaba, who tapped home from close range after Casemiro headed the ball back in front of a wide-open goal following a corner kick.

Benzema added Madrid’s second in the 65th minute and Real saw out the rest of the match with little threat from their Bundesliga opponents.

Madrid open LaLiga play on Sunday away to Almeria, while Frankfurt play their second match of the season in Germany‘s top flight on the road against Hertha Berlin.
