Ancelotti and Real Madrid make Super Cup history

Carlo Ancelotti has made history again, becoming the first coach to win the UEFA Super Cup four times after Real Madrid beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0.

The match between the Champions League and Europa League holders was held in Helsinki this evening.

A desperate Tuta goal-line clearance rescued the Germans early on, but David Alaba broke the deadlock before half-time when following up a set-piece from close range.

Only the crossbar kept out a ferocious Casemiro strike and Karim Benzema’s finish squirmed through Kevin Trapp for 2-0.

Eintracht Frankfurt did not have Filip Kostic in the squad, as he is expected to fly in for his Juventus medical tomorrow morning.

This means Ancelotti has won all four of his UEFA Super Cup Finals, two with Milan in 2003-04 and 2007-08, then Real Madrid in 2014-15 and 2022-23.

Nobody else has achieved that before, as Pep Guardiola remains on four.

It is the 24th trophy in Ancelotti’s management career, the ninth UEFA title, leaving behind Sir Alex Ferguson and Giovanni Trapattoni on seven.

Real Madrid win their fifth Super Cup, joining Milan and Barcelona on that top spot.

    So… nobody except for Pep who achieved it first? Am I missing something or is there an error in that statement?
