Romelu Lukaku’s first competitive goal for Manchester United proved in vain as Real Madrid lifted the UEFA Super Cup thanks to strikes from Casemeiro and Isco.

Jose Mourinho could not inspire the Red Devils to victory against his former club, who won the trophy for the second consecutive year and were dominant for large periods.

The opening goal came from an unlikely source, with defensive midfielder Casemeiro finding himself on the shoulder of the last defender to finish neatly from Dani Carvajal’s cross.

Gareth Bale almost made it 3-0, only to see his effort cannon back off the crossbar, but there were some positives for United.

New signing Nemanja Matic impressed in midfield, and Lukaku opened his account for the club when pouncing on a rebound.
