Saul Niguez scored a sensational volley to help earn Atletico Madrid a 4-2 UEFA Super Cup triumph in extra time against city rivals Real Madrid.
Diego Costa's wonderful goal after 49 seconds, the fastest goal in Super Cup history, got Atletico off to a flyer in Tallinn on Wednesday.
But Karim Benzema headed in Gareth Bale's brilliant cross and Sergio Ramos converted a penalty awarded for a Juanfran handball to turn the tie around for Julen Lopetegui in his first game in charge of Madrid.
Despite Diego Simeone serving a touchline ban Atleti showed their fighting spirit to come from behind themselves, Costa scoring from close range before Saul's stunning strike in the 98th minute settled a gripping contest.
The brilliant Costa then combined with Vitolo to set up Koke for a drilled fourth that gave Atletico bragging rights over their rivals as well as the first European title of the season.
Atleti took the lead in the first minute of a thrilling clash, Costa rampaging away from Ramos and Raphael Varane to slam home past Keylor Navas after chasing down his own flick-on from Diego Godin's long ball.
Marco Asensio was close to equalising with a flicked finish from a Marcelo left-wing cross, but Jan Oblak made an excellent save.
Madrid equalised in the 27th minute, though, Bale delivering a wonderful deep cross from the right wing that Benzema nodded past Oblak.
With France forward Antoine Griezmann in muted form, Atletico gradually lost control of the contest and Madrid took the lead from the penalty spot after Juanfran handled in the area.
Ramos sent Oblak the wrong way from the penalty spot, scoring in the Super Cup for the second time and seemingly putting Madrid on course to win the trophy for the third year in a row.
But Marcelo's mistake on the touchline allowed Juanfran and Angel Correa to combine and set up Costa to slam home an equaliser in the 79th minute.
And when substitute Thomas Partey stood up a cross from the left, Saul was on hand to lash a vicious volley into Navas' top-left corner to regain the lead for Atletico, with Koke's fine first-time finish in the 104th minute wrapping up the scoring.

So how will the post-Cristiano Ronaldo era begin for Real Madrid go? We are moments away from Kick-off!
We are minutes away from Kick-Off. The usual pre-match ceremonies are coming to an end. Including a choir of children singing out "You've got the Love" by Florence & The Machine. Which is quite nice. Estonia seems very nice. Makes me kinda want to visit now. The teams are out!
Big night in prospect for these two, the long-term question is can they fill the boots of a Cristiano Ronaldo who has made his way to Juventus over the summer.
Now for Atletico! Fresh from his World Cup antics Antoine Griezmann starts up front with Diego Costa. Summer signing Thomas Lemar gets a competitive debut on the left wing. Fellow Summer signing Gelson Martins will start from the bench.
Team news is in! First up Real Madrid. No Thibaut Courtois, not even on the bench. Kaylor Navas gets the nod in goal. Bale, Isco and Benzema lead the line. Luca Modric gets a place on the bench, as does exciting Brazillian teenager Vinícius Júnior.
Hello! Welcome to the Live Updates of the UEFA Super Cup between Real Madrid & Atletico Madrid. Who will lift the Super Cup this evening, which is being played in Tallin, the capital of European country Estonia (give it a google). Stick around and we'll get some live updates in, including Live video of the goals going in (Ohhh). Team news to follow.
It’s a Madrid derby in Tallin as Real Madrid face off against rivals Atletico for the chance to lift the European Super Cup. As ever, you can watch all the action between the two Spanish giants via beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
Wednesday’s match in the capital of Estonia will be the first competitive game without Cristiano Ronaldo following his blockbuster move to Juventus, and the first piece of silverware up for grabs for new boss Julen Lopetegui. It will be interesting to see how Los Blancos are able to cope with life following the departure of their all-time top scorer.
In team news, Luca Modric has expected a place on the bench after playing just 15 minutes of preseason football after his World Cup heroics with Croatia. Whilst Thibaut Courtois is unlikely to start in goal, with Kaylor Navas to get the nod ahead of the recently acquired keeper. Whilst Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema should be handed starts in attack, after impressing in preseason.
Gareth Bale is expected to be the biggest winner from Ronaldo’s move to Italy. The Welsh attacker proved his class in last season coming off the bench in the Champions League final to score twice against Liverpool. Now Bale has the chance to step out of Ronaldo’s shadow and be the main man for Real Madrid, a few goals in Tallin will give the Welsh wizard plenty of confidence going into the new La Liga season.
Real Madrid Predicted Team
Navas, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Bale, Isco, Asensio, Benzema

Atletico will be targeting their piece of silverware of the new season, whilst getting one over their bitter rivals in the process. After an encouraging summer in the transfer market, Diego Simeone’s side will be confident of challenging both Real & Barca in the race for the La Liga crown.
French international winger Thomas Lemar is the standout accusation for Atleti. The 22-year old has plenty of potential, and already has a good relationship with a host of key players in the side. Lemar is likely to be handed a start in Tallin and will be relishing his chance to test the likes of Marcelo on the left wing.
The other key signing for Atletico was that of Antoine Griezmann, who penned a new deal with the club to 2023 turning down the advances of rivals Barcelona. The striker is the beating heart of this side under Simeone and had a summer to remember with France scoring a goal in the final and lifting the World Cup. The game is unlikely to be a little too early for Griezmann who only just returned to training last week, but expect the all-action striker to make the bench.
Atletico Predicted Team
Oblak, Juanfran, Godin, Savic, Luis, Koke, Saul, Rodri, Lemar, Costa, Kalinic
It certainly promises to be a fascinating encounter as old rivals Real Madrid & Atletico Madrid battle it out for the European Super Cup. You can watch all the action live & exclusive via beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
