Real Madrid catastrophic loss in Mallorca – Los Blancos lost match
Zinedine Zidane was furious after the match against Mallorca. A club that is fighting in the relegation zone, just won against Real Madrid.
Real Madrid players came back from the international break with injuries. Modric and Bale got injured in the same match. At the same time, Carvajal and Vazquez could not help Los Blancos because of injuries in the leg. Hazard became the father of the fourth child, and Zidane gave him a rest day.
1st half of the match
Zidane started with a weak midfield. Kross and Modric could not help, so there was only Casemiro from the main lineup. Keep in mind that Casemiro came back to Spain on Friday, so it was tough for Brazilian midfielder to play 90 minutes on Saturday. At the same time, Zidane gave a chance to Isco and James due. Unfortunately to Real Madrid fans, midfield zone without Kroos or Modric, could not handle the pressure.
1st half was very intense. Real Madrid was playing sharply in attack but could not convert shots into goals.
On the other hand, Mallorca attacked once, and they scored a beautiful goal. On the 7th minute, Lago Junior dribbled through two defenders on the left-wing and scored beauty. Courtois could save the team and got another ball in the net. An interesting fact is that Mallorca shot only once on target, and they scored – 100% result.
2nd half of the match
Zidane changed the plan in the second half. Valverde and Rodrygo joined the players on the field from 66th minute but could not make an impact. Real Madrid could shot on target a few times in the second half but without success. It was a terrible match for Jovic, as striker could not even register a shot.
Odriozola got a red card on 74th minute and left the team in a terrible situation. After the red card, Los Blancos was controlling the ball but could not create chances for a goal. The absence of Hazard, Bale, Modric, and Kroos was visible.
