Spanish Supercup, second leg

Real Madrid (1) 3 - Zaragoza (1) 0

A late Raúl hat trick gave Real Madrid their first trophy of the season at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. The Spanish international striker opened the scoring twenty minutes from time getting the lightest of touches to deflect Hierro's header past Láinez. Then five minutes later he turned Figo's cross past the keeper, and in the last minute he sealed victory, following up after Savio's shot had been saved. The result is a breath of fresh air for Madrid, who have struggled to show form in their preseason matches. The league champions open the new season on Saturday, playing away at Valencia. (22.08.01)
