Real beat Bayern to lift Beckenbauer Cup

MUNICH: Real Madrid won the Franz Beckenbauer Cup on Friday, beating Bayern Munich 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out at the Allianz Arena in a testimonial for the German World Cup winning veteran.

French international Franck Ribery, besieged by problems both on and off the pitch, played 60 minutes of the game as he battles for full fitness a week ahead of the start of the new Bundesliga season.

In the eighth minute of the match, Spanish World Cup star Sergio Ramos conceded a penalty, but Holger Badstuber`s spot-kick was saved by Iker Casillas in what was the best chance of regulation time.

"The result is not important. What was important was to face a difficult opponent like Bayern and pose them a lot of problems," said Real coach Jose Mourinho.
