MADRID -- Three quick thoughts from the Santiago Bernabeu as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-0 for a 5-1 aggregate victory in the Spanish Super Cup.

1. Asensio stars as Madrid stroll to another trophy

Real Madrid strolled to the 2017 Super Cup with a 2-0 victory over Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Wednesday, sealing a thumping 5-1 aggregate win over their rivals to start the Spanish season in the best possible way.

Suspended Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was barely missed as a Marco Asensio screamer...

Cristiano Ronaldo's ban should not concern Real Madrid in Super Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo will not play in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo's absence should present no problem for Real Madrid in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona on Wednesday.

Ronaldo had his five-game ban, resulting from his actions in the first leg, upheld by an appeals committee earlier in the day.

He received a one-game ban when he was booked for removing his shirt while celebrating a goal and then shown a second yellow minutes later for diving.

His response to the second booking -- pushing referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea...

Why Wednesday's Super Cup second leg is a must-win for Real Madrid

Fernando Palomo and Herculez Gomez have no problems with Ronaldo's 5-game ban and assess how Real will fare without him.
Zinedine Zidane admits he will have to rotate his side in the coming weeks, but Bale and Asensio will play a key part.

At the moment, things are going so well with Real Madrid that their average fan suspects all this can't last.

The team, inspiring at times and resilient others, steps it up whenever required and keeps winning trophies, no matter how transcendent or unimportant they are. The squad have assimilated Zinedine Zidane's simple but effective philosophy and Antonio Pintus' fitness principles and always show a competitive face, no matter who plays.

The midfield generates envy among supporters of any team...
