Man United player ratings v Real Madrid: 24-year-old star has a 4/10 stinker
COMMENT By Harry Sykes
Jose Mourinho couldn’t add a trophy to his United cabinet in the Super Cup on Tuesday night.
Despite Romelu Lukaku scoring his first competitive goal for Man United, Mourinho’s men were outclassed at the Philip II Arena in Skopje.
In the end a 2-1 victory failed to do justice to the Real Madrid side who dominated for large swathes of this tie.
However, there were some small victories to take from the game and Mourinho won’t be too upset at getting a run-out against such high-class opposition on the eve of the Premier League opening this weekend.
Casemiro scored the first goal of the match for Real Madrid in the 24th minute but the highlight of the evening was Isco’s stunning second in the 52nd minute.

He slipped the ball to Gareth Bale who returned the favour in a move that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the training ground.

Football Insider rates the Man United starting eleven after their defeat to the best team in Europe.
