Ronaldo Brace Earns Real Madrid UEFA Super Cup Title
Cristiano Ronaldo is no doubt ready for the 2014/15 season and he got it started by scoring the 2 goals as Real Madrid defeated Sevilla 2-0 to win UEFA Super Cup, the match-up between the previous season’s Champions League and Europa Cup winners.
The win gives Real Madrid 14 major European titles.
Real Madrid was in control of the match from the early stages. Gareth Bale and Ronaldo playing on either wing with Karim Benzema more central gave a lethal frontline along with new boys James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos pulling the strings from the midfield.
adidas has today released the official match ball of the 2014 UEFA Super Cup. On Tuesday, August 12, Champions League winner Real Madrid will take on Europa League winner Sevilla FC in Cardiff, Wales. For the second time in the competition’s history, both teams from the same domestic league, Spain’s Liga BBVA, will dispute for the title.
The ball is modeled after the Brazuca ball adidas used during the World Cup. There is more white present on the six-paneled upper, as the panels are black curved triangular blades with silver details. Blue, red, white and yellow streaks on and around the design gives the ball a neat modern look. The official logo and match details of the Super Cup and adidas’ logo are also on the ball.
