Sixth consecutive Super Cup for Real Madrid

Sixth consecutive Super Cup for Real Madrid
The Super Cup is the first trophy in dispute every season, and Real Madrid has been very devoted to it: with yesterday's win the Whites get their sixth consecutive title and their 10th overall.

The semi finals brought the first Clasico of the season, and Real Madrid proved to be in better shape than a renewed FC Barcelona. Mateo's men played a good second half and the duo Musa (Real's best scorer) - Tavares (Real's top PIR) proved to be too much for Barça.

Real advanced to the final with a 40-48 run in the second half and a final score of 80-90, pulling the first Clasico of the season.

The Whites faced in the final their past season's King's Cup executioner: Unicaja Málaga, who had beated the locals in the other semi final. Unicaja was pretty short handed at the Center position (Sima, Lima and Kravish did not play the game), but Campazzo was to be the best player of the game.

The point guard scored was the game's high scorer (19 points) and best passer (5 assists) and was awarded the Super Cup MVP at the end of the final game.

Despite a good start from Málaga (11-7), Real finished the first 10 minutes ahead at the scoreboard (17-21) and increased it advantage by halftime, 31-44.

Resuming the game after halftime Málaga stood strong and improved in offense: two free throws from Ejim were overturning the score (56-54, on a 25-10 run); but Real finished the period strong and lead again (56-61, min. 30).

Unicaja was to overturn the score and lead again, but the Whites response, with great plays from Llull, Campazzo and Poirier was final, as Real secured the win and the trophy, 81-88.
