81 minSAVE! Rashford breaks into the Real Madrid box, but Navas makes the save! What a chance! Brilliant football involving Fellaini and Mkhitaryan, but Navas makes the stop.
80 minFellaini is on his feet, and Ronaldo is about to enter the field for Real Madrid.
74 minREAL MADRID SUBS! Lucas and Asensio replace Bale and Isco.
73 minWater break time! Cue the picture…
72 minGood pressure from Man United as they force the issue with a couple of crosses into the Real Madrid box, but Ramos is on hand to clear the danger. Ronaldo might well be coming on here.
65 minMan United have been second best for pretty much all of this match, but there is no question that Mourinho’s side are in the match approaching the final 25 minutes. Be sure to stay tuned here.
61 minCROSSBAR! Bale smashes the crossbar with an effort from inside the box!
52 minOne-way traffic at the moment as Real Madrid continue to force the issue in the final third of the field. Marcelo swings a dangerous cross towards Benzema, but Darmian clears the danger.
50 minRashford is causing problems in the final third, but Man United need to be careful down the other end. You have to think that a second goal for Real Madrid ends this Super Cup as a contest.
49 minCHANCE! Smalling manages to block Marcelo’s effort wide of the post as Real Madrid come close once again. Man United are absolutely all over the place here.
48 minSAVE! Super save from De Gea to keep out a bending effort from Kroos.
48 minMan United need to keep the ball better in this second period, and need to start feeding Lukaku in dangerous positions. Real Madrid are such an incredible team, however, and they have already threatened since the restart, with Bale threatening to meet a low cross from Marcelo.
46 min… MAN UNITED SUB! Rashford has replaced Lingard at the interval.
45 minSAVE! Navas has to keep out a header from Lukaku after the striker had met a cross from Pogba. Better from Man United, who had enjoyed a long spell of possession in the Real Madrid half.
41 minLittle under five minutes of the first period remaining, and Real Madrid deservedly lead at this stage of the contest. Importantly for Man United, the score is only 1-0. I would be surprised if we had seen the last of the goals tonight, especially with the talent on both benches here.
36minHerrera takes the ball away from Kroos in a dangerous position, but Lukaku decides to make a movement towards it, and the flag is raised. Lukaku should have left that for Herrera!
34 minHerrera floats a free kick towards Matic, but the pass just has too much weight. Good idea from the Spaniard, but it was just too long. Still 1-0 Real Madrid with 34 minutes on the clock here.
33 min… Man United have a free kick in a decent area as Modric brings down Pogba.
32 minWe are back underway here…
30 minDrinks break! We have entered the first hydration break of the match. The players need it. Man United need it. The Red Devils are being utterly dominated at the moment. Time to regroup here!
29 minAnywhere will do for Man United as Pogba is forced to clear into touch.
28 minMan United just cannot get the ball at the moment as Real Madrid dominate the possession. Los Blancos have been pretty underwhelming in pre-season, but they have really turned up tonight.
24 minGOOOOOOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 Man United (Casemiro)
23minAll Real Madrid at the moment as the Champions League holders boss the possession. It seems only a matter of time before the Spanish champions make the breakthrough in this match.
22 minIsco misses the crossbar from distance after a spell of possession from Real Madrid.
21 minReal Madrid are having plenty of joy when they manage to feed Bale in one-on-one situations, with Lindelof struggling to deal with the Welshman’s pace and power. The better chances have fallen to Los Blancos tonight, but Man United are still carrying a big threat down the other end of the field.
Still goalless with 11 minutes on the clock, but it has been a very positive start to this match. Real Madrid were on the front foot in the early moments, but Man United have been better in the last few minutes. You do get the feeling that the first goal tonight – if there indeed is one – could be vital.
9 minMkhitaryan goes down just outside the Real Madrid box under pressure from Ramos, but the referee is not interested. Moments before, there was a nice link-up between Pogba and Lukaku.
7 minPogba shows wonderful feet in an advanced area before feeding Lingard, but the England international is squeezed out at the final moment. Real Madrid then break down the other end with Bale as this match continues to excite in the early moments. It has been an excellent start here.
4 minGood pressure from Real Madrid in these early moments, with Bale causing some problems.
United-linked Gareth Bale wins the first corner of the evening, as Nemanja Matic comes across to block the cross.
From the set-piece, Marcelo’s ball into the box loops high into the Skopje sky and it drops to the Welshman around seven yards out.
Bale, unmarked, sticks a right foot out at it and it goes sailing wide of goal.
He should have done better.
