Super Cup 2022: Real Madrid 2-0 Eintrakht Frankfurt

Karim Benzema continued his Ballon d'Or pursuit with a 324th goal for European champions Real Madrid as they beat Eintracht Frankfurt to lift the UEFA Super Cup in Helsinki.

Carlo Ancelotti's side took the lead when David Alaba tapped into an empty net, with Frankfurt goalie Kevin Trapp stranded, following Casemiro's header back across goal.

 Benzema doubled the Spanish giants' lead after the break with a first-time finish from Vinicius Jr's cross to move second on Real's all-time goal-scoring list. He overtook Raul and behind only Cristiano Ronaldo who has 450 goals.

Benzema is coming off the most prolific season in his career, scoring 44 times in 46 games for Real Madrid to help his side win a Champions League and La Liga double - and he looks set to continue that form.
