At the Helsinki Olympic Stadium, the semi-automated offside system made its debut in a European match between the champions of the previous season's Champions League and Europa League.

The first half saw several occasions where Thibaut Courtois had to make a save, but Real still had the majority of the possession and took the lead eight minutes before halftime when David Alaba tapped the ball into an empty net after Casemiro had headed the ball back across goal from a precarious angle.

Man of the match: Casemiro.

After the break, Frankfurt continued to make forward but lacked direction in the final third, and the La Liga champions appeared to have the best chance of scoring the game's second goal.

On the hour mark, Casemiro's powerful left-footed shot hit the crossbar before Benzema increased Real's advantage and clinched the victory by connecting with a cross from Vinicius Junior and beating Kevin Trapp from just inside the area.

Team News

Carlo Ancelotti, the head coach of Real Madrid, started with the same lineup against Liverpool in the Champions League final in May.

Oliver Glasner, the manager of Eintracht Frankfurt, made one change from the team that defeated Rangers in the Europa League final the previous year, inserting Christopher Lenz into the starting lineup.

With his goal, Benzema surpasses Raul (323) and moves into second place all-time for Real in terms of goals scored (324), only behind Cristiano Ronaldo (450).

Real have already won the Super Cup five times (2002, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2022), joining rivals Barcelona and AC Milan, and their manager Carlo Ancelotti is the most successful manager in the competition's history with four titles (2003, 2007, 2014, 2022).

Frankfurt's season hasn't gotten off to a good start, as they were destroyed 6-1 by Bayern Munich in their opening Bundesliga game last week.

Ancelotti: Benzema is going after the Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti:

"Eintracht were very closed and we found it difficult to find our rhythm, but we did it well then.

"It's difficult at the beginning of the season to be in top form but we now have won to start the season well."

The Italian reserved special praise for captain Benzema, who was last season's top scorer in the Champions League.

"He's a very important player, a team leader," he said.

"If we're here it's largely due to his merits, he scored a lot of goals, he finished the season well, he scored a goal today and now he's going for the Ballon d'Or award."
