Champions League winners Real Madrid outclassed Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 on Wednesday to clinch the UEFA Super Cup for a record-equalling fifth time and kick off their season with a trophy.

A first half goal from David Alaba and another from Karim Benzema in the 65th that lifted him to second in Real's all-time scoring list with 324 goals, wrapped up the title for the Spaniards.

Europa League winners Eintracht had offered some resistance in the first half and had chances to score but were eventually overrun by the Spaniards.

The win also means Real's Carlo Ancelotti becomes the first coach to lift the trophy four times.

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

"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 win brought Real level with AC Milan and Barcelona who have also five Super Cup wins.
