Carvajal stunner gives Real Madrid Super Cup trophy

Dani Carvajal dramatically helped Real Madrid to their first trophy of 2016-17 as he netted in the 119th minute to settle Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup in Trondheim and send 10-man Sevilla slumping to a 3-2 defeat.

The right-back robbed Yevhen Konoplyanka of the ball before going on a solo run that ended with a superb shot into the top corner.

Sergio Ramos had sensationally kept Madrid’s chances alive by netting to make it 2-2 deep into second-half stoppage time to send the game into extra time.

Goals from Franco Vazquez and Yehven Konoplyanka – who netted from the spot after Ramos conceded a penalty – saw the Santiago Bernabeu side trailing 2-1 heading into the dying minutes of regular time after Marco Asensio had opened the scoring.

But Madrid refused to give up and Ramos hauled the sides level in the 93rd minute against his former club, heading home from close range after a superb cross from Lucas Vazquez.

 That meant an additional 30 minutes were required and Sevilla were reduced to 10 men early in extra time when Timothee Kolodziejczak received his second booking following a foul on Lucas Vazquez.

Lucas Vazquez should have scored after a great ball from James Rodriguez, but Rico did just enough to allow Vitolo to clear the winger’s attempt off the goalline.

But it was all for nothing in the end as Carvajal delivered Madrid the trophy with a stunning goal, dancing past a number of opponents before beating Rico with the outside of his right boot.
