Thibaut Courtois saved Jose Gaya’s poorly struck spot kick to give Real Madrid a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Valencia after the teams finished level at 1-1 after extra time in their Spanish Super Cup semi-final in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Karim Benzema gave holders Real Madrid the lead from the spot in the first half after he was fouled inside the area by Eray Comert but Valencia got back into the game and deservedly equalized through a Samuel Lino volley from a Toni Lato cross straight after halftime.

Vinicius Jr could have won it for Real Madrid in extra time but his close range shot was saved by Giorgi Mamardashvili.

Real Madrid will face the winner of Thursday’s semi-final between Real Betis and Barcelona in Sunday’s final in Riyadh.
