Real Madrid defeated Mallorca 2-0 in La Liga’s 31st round and began the enormous battle for the title with Barcelona. The Blancos are playing their home games at Alfredo di Stefano ‘s replacement stadium as there’s a ton of work going on at the Santiago Bernabeu yet that doesn’t affect their football quality.
Mallorca, with whom the Croatian striker Ante Budimir started from the main moment, began transparently and threatened in the ninth and eleventh minutes separately, through Babe and Lago Junior, so the host had to be saved by the goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Be that as it may, in the nineteenth moment Real scored after Luka Modric pleasantly assisted the playful Vinicius Junior on the edge of the penalty zone.
The youthful Brazilian had gone out on Manola Reina alone and scored for the lead. The situation at the start of the action is problematic, in any case, as Dani Carvajal won the ball with an unpleasant start, which at that point reached Modrić.
Five minutes later, after a pleasant pass from Karim Benzema, Vinicius attempts to throw Reina however the ball winds up at the crossbar.
Danger from the opposite side in the 29th moment Lago tossed in from the left side, Budimir in the leap, only a couple of centimeters away from having a hazard in the leap before Courtois. Captain Sergio Ramos affirms Real’s victory. He took a free-kick from 18 meters in the 56th moment and struck Manolo Reine ‘s right fork impeccably. It was amazing accuracy, the shot flew in an ideal trajectory over the wall, not even the meeting goalkeeper moved.
For Ramos, that was the tenth goal of this present season’s 38th game.
Brahim Diaz, who blocked Reina into a corner, threatened Real Madrid with a shot, until the end.
