MADRID: French striker Karim Benzema believes Real Madrid can still win the Spanish Supercup despite a home draw with Barcelona in the first clasico of the season. “Two great teams faced each other, but honestly, Madrid deserved the win,” Benzema told the sports daily AS. “We did much more than Barca, but, hey, we know we have the chance to win in Barcelona and lift the Supercup.” The second-leg of the Supercup – between league champions Barcelona and King’s Cup winners Real – takes place at the Camp Nou today, with Barcelona the clear favorites.
