Madrid Crushes Mallorca To Return To La Liga Summit

Two goals in both halves half from Vinicius Junior and Sergio Ramos secured a  much needed home win  for Real Madrid against struggling Real Mallorca in the Spanish top flight on Wednesday.

 

 

The victory brings  Los Merengues back above El Clasico rivals Barcelona to the top of the La Liga table, on head to head record.

 

Brazilian striker Vinicius put the home side ahead on 20 minutes, after Mallorca keeper Manolo Reina  had denied Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale in the early stages.

 

The visitors had chances to equalise before the break, with Los Blancos loanee Takefusa Kubo and Ante Budimir causing problems for the hosts but the hosts looked to step on the gas after the break, with Ramos bulleting home a 25 yard free kick on 56 minutes.

 

Mallorca almost produced an instant reaction, with Thibaut Courtois called into action to deny the lively Budimir.

 

 

Zidane opted to rotate his options in the closing stages, with Bale, Eden Hazard and Luka Modric all subbed off towards the end of the encounter.
