Ramos: Real Madrid will win again

Football: Atletico punish tired Real in extra-time to lift Super Cup Real Madrid 'must improve in all areas,' says Julen Lopetegui - so how is life post-Cristiano Ronaldo?

It was Real's first defeat in an global final since 2000, with Julen Lopetegui's stint getting off to a bad start.

Real, who beat Atletico in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals and knocked them out of the competition in 2015 and 2017, levelled when Karim Benzema leapt at the far post to nod in a cross from Gareth Bale in the 27th minute.

But they could not hold on.

A name linked with a host of top European clubs throughout the summer, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was not signed by any English clubs last week, so it's now Real Madrid's job to try and get the signature of the world class global, as the 23-year-old would surely relish a move to the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid players have all come out and played down his departure, including Sergio Ramos, who claimed just days ago that Real Madrid would keep winning after his departure.

Both sides had numerous players involved in the World Cup and it looked as though Atletico were the fitter in the final half an hour.

"Of course we missed Cristiano [Ronaldo], but that's in the past. We have full confidence in our coach", Casemiro said.

"Losing Cristiano was obviously not a good thing for us but this club always moves on and will continue to win trophies and titles, the drive and motivation will never stop".

Casemiro, however, said the loss to Atlético did not mean his side had to go out and make urgent signings.

Goals from Diego Costa, Saul Niguez and Koke saw new Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui taste defeat in his first competitive match in charge.

"One result doesn't mean we have a better or worse squad".

Real Madrid will be looking to put the defeat behind them when they kick off their La Liga campaign against Getafe on Sunday.
