Real Madrid needed extra time to book their place in the Spanish Super Cup final on Wednesday evening, edging FC Barcelona 3-2 after extra time in an action-filled meeting in Saudi Arabia.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side led twice on the night only to be pegged back by their Clasico rivals, before Fede Valverde gave them a third advantage that proved to be a bridge too far for FC Barcelona . Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema’s earlier goals had been levelled by Luuk de Jong and Ansu Fati respectively.

Despite their attempts at piling pressure on Ancelotti’s Los Blancos late on, Xavi’s side were unable to level the scores for the third time.

Real Madrid will now face either Atletico Madrid or Athletic Club in the final on Sunday.
