An entertaining El Clásico saw Barcelona seal a record-extending 14th Supercopa de España, courtesy of a thumping 3-1 victory over Real Madrid.
Barcelona, likely smelling blood, then upped the gears and took a two-goal first-half lead.
Firstly through Gavi, whose run into the area was spotted by Lewandowski just after the half-hour mark.
The youngster’s neat square ball for Lewandowski meant the striker fired in his 20th goal of the campaign without having to skip a beat.
Having conceded just six LaLiga goals this season they shepherded Real through the second half, though Courtois would have to be on hand to ensure Lewandowski didn’t double his tally as the hour mark approached.
Karim Benzema cut an isolated figure as the midfield pairing of Frenkie de Jong and Sergio Busquets – making a record-equalling 45th El Clásico appearance – hoarded the ball with gluttonous intent.
The final minutes bore witness to some exhibition football from the Barcelona midfield, in a victory that will live long in the memories of the Blaugrana faithful, though Benzema at least drew some of the pain away from a painful defeat by netting a late consolation.
