Watch: Kroos catches Valencia keeper off his line and scores from corner


Toni Kroos helped Real Madrid cruise into the final of the Spanish Super Cup with a brilliant goal as Los Blancos beat Valencia 3-1 in Saudi Arabia.

The tournament has changed format this season; rather than the winners of La Liga and Copa del Rey facing each other in the final, it is now a four-team competition featuring the winners and runners up in the league and cup.

Real Madrid will face the winner between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid on Sunday after a comfortable victory over Copa del Rey holders Valencia.

Kroos opened the scoring with a cheeky effort direct from a corner after spotting goalkeeper Jaume Domenech remonstrating with his defenders, and Isco and Luka Modric added further goals before Dani Parejo scored a late consolation from the penalty spot.

The Germany international’s effort was definitely the pick of the night, although Domenech is unlikely to want to watch it back.
