Atletico Madrid proved that they should still be considered as potential La Liga title contenders for this season after successfully overcoming their city rival, Real Madrid in the Spain Super Cup final.
Drawing 1-1 in the first meeting at Santiago Bernebau, Atletico were determined to attack their opponent and that poisitive approach was immediately rewarded when Mario Mandzukic puts them in front after just two minutes of play.
Real were not keen on giving up easily as they pushed forward vigorously in search for an equalizing goal, but none of their chances were converted during that first 45 minutes.
Los Blancos tried to up their attacking play in the second half, but instead of dominating proceeding, Anocelotti's men found themselves under more pressure in that second period.
Atletico managed to find some gaps left by advancing Los Blancos players, though unfortunately, Diego Simeone's men failed to add their goal tally.
Things got harder for Madrid in stoppage time when they were forced to play with only 10-men after Luca Modrid picked up his second yellow card.
