Real Madrid have claimed the 2012 Supercopa after a gripping 2-1 second-leg victory over Barcelona in their Santiago Bernabeu clash on Wednesday.Los Blancos triumphed 4-4 on away goals, but it should have been a lot more after a shambolic defensive start from Tito Vilanova?s men.

A missed clearance from Javier Mascherano saw Gonzalo Higuain gifted the opener, and an outrageous move from Cristiano Ronaldo on Gerard Pique put him in position to make it 2-0 after 19 minutes.

Adriano?s red card just before half an hour seemed to signal the the end of Barca?s hopes, but Lionel Messi dragged them back to their feet with a fantastic free-kick on the stroke of half-time.
