Manchester United were outclassed at times as Real Madrid won the UEFA Super Cup, giving Jose Mourinho food for thought at the start of his second season in the hot seat.

Sweltering Skopje bore witness to an entertaining meeting of these European giants in the annual clash of the Champions League and Europa League winners.

Casemiro and Isco put Real Madrid on course for back-to-back Super Cup triumphs, running out 2-1 victors despite Romelu Lukaku's first competitive goal for United bringing the Macedonia encounter to a tense finale.

STAR MAN

Isco: Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea challenged his compatriot for the man-of-the-match prize, pulling off a string of fine saves in the Macedonian capital. But it was Isco that made the most telling impact, scoring a superb goal to cap an outstanding overall performance.
