Match Analysis

Lago Junior scored the only goal of the match early in the 7’ minute. For the next 83 minutes, Real Madrid struggled to make a comeback but could not. They kept possession for most of the time, made 4 shots on target, but all went in vain; eventually suffered a hugely underwhelming 1-0 defeat. The early goal was Mallorca’s only shot on target over 90 minutes. Madrid had to finish the game with 10 men after Alvaro Odriozola got his second yellow card in the 74’ minute.

The loss sees Madrid slip off the top spot, now sitting second behind Barcelona. Marcelo lamented Madrid’s first defeat saying, “It hurts to lose because we played well, but we conceded early on and then looked to make our comeback but could not make that happen.” He added, “we did not have time to think, they scored a goal, and they defended and waited for the counter; that’s no excuse, though.”
