Real Madrid struck a fifth Clasico victory in a row on Wednesday to advance to the Spanish Super Cup final but Barcelona’s young guns showed why there is belief the club’s recovery has begun. 


At the end of a pulsating contest in Saudi Arabia, Madrid scraped through 3-2 after extra-time and will now face either Atletico Madrid or Athletic Bilbao, who play on Thursday, in Sunday’s final. 

That Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema, Madrid’s deadly attacking duo, both scored again.  Luuk de Jong, though, equalised for Barcelona and after Fati cancelled out Benzema’s strike, it needed Fede Valverde to score the winner in extra-time.
