Has Real Madrid ever won Super Cup?
Spanish Super Cup, also known as Supercopa de España is a competition, the winners and runners-up of LaLiga play against the winners and runners-up of Copa del Rey. It was founded in 1982, with the winners of La Liga fighting against the Copa champions in a two-legged affair, with the aggregate winner taking home the trophy. Since the 2019-20 season, the tournament is contested by four teams, with two semi-finals and a final, all of which are single-leg games.
Real Madrid has lifted Spanish Super Cup 11 times, taking par in 16 editions. Their archrivals Barcelona are the most successful team in this competition with a total of 13 trophies. They have been paired together in the Super Cup in seven occasions, with Madrid coming out on top five times.
