Marco Asensio says Real Madrid were the better team and deserved to win the Spanish Super Cup.
The Spanish sensation scored twice against Barcelona as Madrid won 5-1 on aggregate to claim the trophy.
Asensio scored from long range in the first leg, with Madrid claiming a 3-1 win. He put the Los Blancos in the lead with a superb strike in the second leg.
“That is the team’s work. It is a difficult moment because in big teams this happens when you do not win.”
“My two goals in the Spanish Super Cup were great and I will look back on them fondly,” the 21-year-old star said.
“The fans show us incredible support and so naturally we want to reward them with titles.
“We were playing at home and had to really turn it on, and we created opportunities. We played the better football over the tie.”
