Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was quick to celebrate his team’s UEFA Super Cup extra-time triumph after sitting out the clash in Trondheim.
Working his way back to full fitness following a knee injury sustained during Portugal’s Euro 2016 victory last month, Ronaldo watched from home as Madrid overcame 10-man Sevilla 3-2 thanks to Dani Carvajal’s stunning 119th-minute winner on Tuesday.
With the match – pitting the Champions League winners against the Europa League victors – seemingly headed for penalties, Carvajal produced a fine solo goal to deliver yet another trophy to Madrid.
And Ronaldo took to social media shortly after the final whistle, posting a picture of his Madrid team-mates holding the Super Cup trophy, accompanied with the caption: “Champions”.
Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, Pepe and Keylor Navas also sat out the fixture at Lerkendal Stadion.
Madrid will now turn their attention to a friendly against Reims on August 16, before the open their LaLiga campaign at Real Sociedad five days later.
