Asensio: we played the better football

Real Madrid striker Marco Asensio says his side were well worth their 5-1 aggregate victory over Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup.

The 21-year-old Spaniard scored a great goal late on in last Sunday’s 3-1 win at Camp Nou, and produced an even more spectacular strike to open the scoring as Madrid won the second leg 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"My two goals in the Spanish Super Cup were great and I will look back on them fondly," the former Mallorca forward said.

"The fans show us incredible support and so naturally we want to reward them with titles. 

"We were playing at home and had to really turn it on, and we created opportunities, we played the better football over the tie."

Madrid kick off their La Liga campaign this coming Sunday away to Deportivo La Coruna.
