It was played at the Lerkendal Stadion in Trondheim, Norway, on 9 August 2016. Real Madrid won the match 3–2 after extra time for their third UEFA Super Cup title.
The Lerkendal Stadion was announced as the venue of the Super Cup at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon, Switzerland, on 18 September 2014. It was the first UEFA final hosted in Norway.
The Lerkendal Stadion opened as a multi-purpose stadium on 10 August 1947, as the main football and athletics stadium in Trondheim. It is the home stadium of Rosenborg BK. The stadium has a capacity for 21,166 spectators, making it the second largest football stadium in Norway.
This was the third consecutive and fourth overall all-Spanish Super Cup.
Starters of the 2016 UEFA Champions League Final, Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale missed the match with injuries. In the 21st minute Marco Asensio scored the opening goal for Real Madrid with a strike from 25-yards out which flew into the top left corner of the net. Franco Vázquez got the equalizer in the 41st minute when he scored with a low left foot shot from just inside the penalty area.
Sevilla were awarded a penalty in the 72nd minute when Sergio Ramos was adjudged to have fouled Vitolo by flicking back his leg inside the penalty area. Yevhen Konoplyanka scored from the resulting penalty with a low shot to his left sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. In the 93rd minute Sergio Ramos scored with a free header from two yards out after a cross from Lucas Vázquez on the right.
Four minutes into extra-time Timothée Kolodziejczak was sent off for a second yellow card following a foul on Lucas Vázquez. Sergio Ramos then stooped low to score his second goal but the goal was ruled out for a pull on Sevilla defender Adil Rami.
In the 119th minute Dani Carvajal got into the penalty box after a long run down the right and scored when he lifted the ball with the outside of his right foot over the goalkeeper.
The Champions League winners were designated as the "home" team for administrative purposes.
