Diego Costa's first-minute strike fastest ever in UEFA Super Cup

Diego Costa scored two goals in Atletico Madrid's 4-2 win over Real Madrid on Wednesday in the UEFA Super Cup, including a first-minute strike that was the fastest ever in the competition.

The Spanish international gave the defending Europa League titleholders the lead just 49 seconds into the match at A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn, Estonia. 

Costa wrestled past Real defenders Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane and powered a high-angle shot past goalkeeper Keylor Navas to hit the top of the net.

Real's replies both came in the first half with a Karim Benzema header and a Ramos penalty. Costa answered with another goal in the 79th minute to level the match. 

Two scores in added extra time by Saúl Ñíguez (98') and Koke (104') gave Los Colchoneros the win and their third UEFA Super Cup trophy. 

Real had previously beat Atletico in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finals and knocked them out of the competition in 2015 and 2017.

The fastest goal in a Champions League final was scored by AC Milan's Paolo Maldini in 2005 with 53 seconds in that match. Michael Rummenigge netted the fastest goal in a Europa League (then UEFA Cup) final for Borussia Dortmund at the two-minute mark in 1993.
