Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde scored an extra-time winner to settle El Clasico in the Spanish Super Cup

Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde scored an extra-time winner to settle El Clasico in the Spanish Super Cup

Scoring an extra-time winner in El Clasico wasn’t enough for Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde – he had to make sure he mocked the Barcelona fans too.

The midfielder scored the winning goal for Real against their arch-rivals on Wednesday night and copied the celebration that his fellow South American, Lionel Messi, did in 2017.

Valverde did his best to copy the iconic Messi celebration

That game ended 3-2 too, with Barca taking all three points at the Bernabeu that day, five years ago.

And, after Messi scored a 92nd-minute winner, he ran over to the fans, removed his shirt, and showed them his name and number.

After scoring a late goal himself, Valverde did the same (albeit less gracefully), appearing to poke fun at the Barca fans, after Messi left the club for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Real took the lead three times in the match, with Barca coming back twice before they eventually made it 3-2 after 90 minutes.

Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema both had goals cancelled out by Luuk de Jong and Ansu Fati, before Valverde’s extra-time winner.

There was also a full Barcelona debut for former Manchester City forward Ferran Torres.

Last season’s La Liga champions Atletico Madrid take on Athletic Bilbao on Thursday in the other semi-final, with the winner facing Real Madrid in Sunday’s final in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
