Barcelona trounced archrivals, Real Madrid 3-1 in the El Clasico Supercopa de Espana final, at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday.

Gavi opened the scoring for the Catalans in the 33rd minute, before Robert Lewandowski doubled the advantage 12 minutes later.

Pedri extended Barca’s lead in the 69th minute after scoring a brilliant goal.

The current La Liga leaders thought they were running away with a clean sheet when Karim Benzema scored an extra-time consolation goal for Los Blancos.

Madrid earlier defeated Barcelona in an El Clasico in the league this season.

The trophy is Xavi’s first piece of silverware as Barcelona manager.
