Real Madrid pays for saving millions by conceding early in Super Cup semifinal against Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid looking shaky at the back after conceding in the first 10 minutes in the Spanish Super Cup

Real Madrid defense look shaky without the likes of Alaba and Militao but have a goalscoring centerback in Rudiger.

Real Madrid go 1-0 down in under 10 minutes against Atletico Madrid. Mario Hermoso wins a superb header from a corner kick to score past Kepa. The game started brightly for Atletico as they have defended better than their Madrid rivals.

Atletico Madrid looks to avenge their recent loss to Girona in La Liga last week with a win in the Madrid Derby in Saudi Arabia. Atletico Madrid looks dangerous when attacking Madrid's defense.

Atletico had a long shot saved by Samuel Lino, which was saved by Kepa, which led to the corner they would concede. The pressure from the Colchoneros has troubled the Madrid team.

Ferland Mendy looks to struggle due to his inactivity as of late, and the pair of Nacho and Rudiger have gotten the center part of their defensive line in check.

Luckily for Real Madrid, they drew the game thirteen minutes later due to a Rudiger header from a corner kick. Ferland Mendy would give Real Madrid the 2-1 lead in the 30th minute when he toe-poked the ball past Oblak in the box.

Griezmann scored the 2-2 equalizer seven minutes after the Mendy goal. A few minutes before, the French striker had a free header in the box. Kepa was able to catch the ball but couldn't stop the low shot from Atletico's goalscorer. The game is back and forth in Saudi Arabia and could go either way.
