Danilo stunner sees Real beat Bayern in Ancelotti reunion

Real Madrid defeated Bayern Munich 1-0 in an International Champions Cup clash that saw Carlo Ancelotti face the LaLiga giants for the first time since being sacked as their coach in 2015.

Danilo the difference

The Bayern boss wasn't able to get one over on his former employers as substitute Danilo scored in the 79th minute with a fantastic piece of individual play to hand Real victory in New Jersey.

Danilo charged down the flank then cut sharply to his left and split the Bayern defence before blasting a left-footed shot through the hands of goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

Danilo (centre) scores past Bayern Munich's Nicolas Feldhahn.

Although Bayern controlled most of the play in the first half, they were unable to capitalise on their scoring chances.

Super Cup up next for Los Blancos

Madrid now get ready for the UEFA Super Cup on August 9 against Sevilla.
