BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off after helping Real Madrid secure a 3-1 win at Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday.

Madrid went ahead in the 50th from an own-goal by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.
Lionel Messi equalized for Barcelona in the 77th when he converted a penalty after Luis Suarez was fouled by goalkeeper Keylor Navas.
