But after goals from Casemiro and Isco, United fought back in the final 20 minutes and might have snatched an equaliser through substitute Marcus Rashford.

It gave Matic encouragement the gap between the two teams is not that big.

Manchester United had lost the Super Cup to Real Madrid on Tuesday but despite the loss, summer transfer Namanja Matic believes that Manchester United don't have a big gap behind Real Madrid.

Manchester United went in for the equalizer after the Isco goal and it was evident, the amount of quality the Old Trafford outfits had. Almost equalizing with Rashford's One on One.
He added: "I think we played everything so we don't lose this game. We played against a very good side. Very experienced.

"They know how to play these games. We are not happy that we lost but did everything. We had an opportunity to equalise, Marcus had a good chance and didn't score, unluckily for us, but this is football."
