Real Madrid is heading for a new title, this time the 2022 Spanish Super Cup. Those led by Carlo Ancelotti comfortably prevailed over Athletic Club de Bilbao in the grand final, after Karim Benzema’s goal in the second half: he scored from penalty at 51 minutes, to place the partial 2-0.

The action of the foul occurred in the 49th minute, when Lucas Vázquez received a filtered pass down the right wing, where the rival team had left a lot of space. The Spanish midfielder did not rush and decided to play low to the crescent of the area, where the ‘Gato’ was waiting, also unmarked.

The French striker finished off at first, but Yeray Álvarez managed to block the definition, with a desperate sweep. Everything seemed to be going on as usual, but the referee César Soto Grado was warned with a call from the VAR, since they spotted that the Athletic Club defender had used his hand in the play.

Finally, after an in-depth analysis, Real Madrid was favored with the penalty and Karim Benzema prepared to execute it. The striker shot powerfully towards the right post of goalkeeper Unai Simón, who had guessed the direction, although he failed to deflect the ball.

In this way, the ‘Merengues’ confirm their high level and there is only a short period of time left before they can celebrate with the cup. Let us remember that they had just eliminated Barcelona, ​​3-2 in extra time, while Athletic Club beat Atlético Madrid 2-1 in the semifinals.
