Spanish Super Cup: Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid on penalties

Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa

Felix appeared to lose his temper earlier in the clash when Jordi Alba touched his face, prompting the Atletico ace to slap the Barca left-back's finger away. There have been several transfers between the two clubs and inevitably, the player switching to the other club has been given a very nasty reception upon his return to his former home.

"In the end, we're all together and we prepared the matches well", he said afterwards.

The 20-year-old Portuguese wonderkid, who was snapped up from Benfica last summer, squared up with Barcelona captain Messi before half-time with the score 0-0.

However, their lead would not last all that long: in a few insane minutes in the final stretch, Atletico managed to turn the result around with two goals.

Amazon was just as vague about a similar breach of email addresses previous year , in which Amazon declined to comment further. If reading that gives you some serious déjà vu, it's probably because the same damn thing happened less than six months ago.

Real were much brighter at the start of the second period, with Serbia striker Luka Jovic driving just wide after he had wriggled past two Atletico defenders on the edge of the area. Diego Simeone's men would finally get the victor through Angel Correa.

The result of the game has now put more pressure on Ernesto Valverde whose position is threatened after previous fall to Espanyol in La Liga.

"It is a shame, we played a great game, after so long we felt good again, we were in control, dominated and attacked all the time", Messi told reporters in quotes reported by Goal.

"We let it slip through certain mistakes when [Atletico] were already nearly dead".

"It hurts because it is a title and we wanted to be in the final and win it".
