Real warm up for Super Cup clash with win over AC Milan

Real Madrid defeated AC Milan 3-1 in a friendly yesterday morning (Singapore time), four days before their Uefa Super Cup clash with city rivals Atletico in Estonia.

French striker Benzema opened the scoring at the Bernabeu with a second-minute header before former Real star Gonzalo Higuain, signed from Juventus in the summer, pulled Milan level just two minutes later.

Bale restored Real's lead with a powerful drive in first-half stoppage time before Borja Mayoral made it 3-1 in injury-time.

Atletico, meanwhile, lost 1-0 to Inter Milan at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. - AFP
