Isco stars as Real Madrid advance into Spanish Super Cup final

Real Madrid defeated Valencia 3-1 on Jan. 8 in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup.

Goals by Toni Kroos, Isco and Luka Modric powered the Madrid club to an emphatic victory over Valencia to move to the Spanish Super Cup final at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Toni Kroos opened the scoring for Zinedine Zidane’s side with a brilliant finish, catching Valencia’s defence off-guard directly from a corner.
Isco then nipped in to double the lead after latching onto the loose ball in the penalty area before Luka Modric curled a spectacular long-range shot into the top corner to complete the victory midway through the second half.
There was a consolation for Valencia as Dani Parejo scored from the spot in injury time, however, it’s Madrid who will now face the winner of tomorrow’s tie between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the final on Sunday.

The final match will take place in the same stadium on Jan. 12.
