Benzema meets in Mallorca double and hobbles from the field
Carlo Ancelotti took four changes compared to the 3-1 win over PSG in the Champions League: Vazquez, Mendy, Casemiro and Rodrygo were all new in the starting and replaced Eder Militao (flu), Carvajal, Modric and Asensio (all bank ).
The leader took the game from the kick-off way into the hand and acted ball-proof, but still little purposeful. Benzema tested Sergio Rico for a first time after five minutes, a short time later, Mendy shot next to it (7.). The needlesticks of the hosts mostly defused in the opposing half, so a long ball was responsible for the first (12th) and a standard (18th) for the second chance of Mallorca, but they both did not find their way to the gate.
RCD, who annoyed the royal with many nickers and (fast) fouls, worked better in the game and after 35 minutes had the best opportunity until then: VFB loaner Maffeo failed on the outer post. Before the break, the Madrilenen again made more steam, Kroos (41.) and Alaba (45th) came against late, but aggressively continuous hosts only to chances of distance.
Real turns after the break
Meanwhile, Mallorca came to the train after the second change, because Blancos aggressively went to the counterpressing and built himself arranged. Vinicius Junior rewarded the efforts of Madrilenen and tunneled Sergio Rico to 1: 0 leadership goal (55th).
As a result, the royal a little pace took out, but defended further concentrated and prevented real chances of chances of the households. Their hard gait already fell over the entire game. Overall, RCD only saw three yellow cards, which for Captain Raillo after 68 minutes was still too bright: the center defender met with a grassy Rodrygo violently on the ankle, the attacker had to hobble away from the square and was then injured by the career even in Worn cabin (71.).
Real in the short-term short-mentioned
Mallorca’s defender Brian Olivan was the next player who went awkward into the duel and executed Vinicius Junior in his own penalty area. Benzema sinked the due penalty sovereign (77.). Thus, the tension in the game was almost there and Benzema was allowed to get up to the header at the header and mark his second hit – 3: 0 (82.). In the event of the captain, but unfortunately, the foot represented the foot and left the field for the last few minutes. Because Ancelotti had already changed five times, Real completed the end in mind, with the in section two toothless offensive of the insulaner but no problems.
Next, both teams are required on the next Sunday: Mallorca is at 2 pm guest at Espanyol Barcelona, Real gets at 9 pm visit from the other club from Barcelona, which shows mightily shaped form. – The Clasico is imminent.
