An unusual victory.. Real Madrid “untied two knots” by defeating Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid’s victory over Atletico Madrid in the 2024 Spanish Super Cup semi-finals untied a knot that had haunted Los Blancos for many years.

The Royal Club succeeded in defeating its neighbor in a derby held in Riyadh with a score of 5-3, to reserve a seat in the Spanish Super Cup final against the winner of Barcelona and Osasuna.

This is the first time in history that Real Madrid has achieved victory over Atletico Madrid when facing them in the Spanish Super Cup.

The two teams previously met in 3 matches, 2 of which ended in a draw, and another was lost by Real Madrid.

In order for Real Madrid to pass Atletico in the Super Cup, it needed to win on penalties in the 2020 edition after the end of regular and extra time in a goalless draw (a victory does not count).

But this time, Real Madrid finally succeeded in untying the knot and achieving the first victory, even if the match extended to extra time after the end of normal time 3-3.

At the same time, the victory achieved by Carlo Ancelotti’s squad was historic from another perspective.

This is the first time that Real Madrid has achieved victory over Atletico Madrid after conceding 3 goals against the Rojiblancos since 1963.

It is noteworthy that the two teams will meet again next Thursday, but this time at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the round of 16 of the Spanish King’s Cup.
