Cristiano Ronaldo came in as a substitute in the second half, scored for Madrid, then got sent off after a second yellow card for allegedly diving.

Despite being one-man down, the visitors scored a third goal through Marco Asensio to take a 3-1 lead in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

The second leg comes up on Wednesday at the Santiago Berna.
