Real Madrid is no longer the leader of the Primera División. In the newly promoted RCD Mallorca coach Zinédine Zidane's side lost 1-0, with Lago Júnior scoring the only goal of the match (7th minute). For Real, it's the first defeat of the season.
With a win, Madrid could have passed the archrival FC Barcelona again. So the Royal (18 points) has one point less than Barça (19 points), which in the afternoon after goals by Antoine Griezmann (13), Lionel Messi (58) and Luis Suárez (66) 3: 0 (1: 0) had won at SD Eibar. Mallorca is ranked 14th with ten points.
Early on, the clear favorite in Mallorca was in arrears. On the left wing, Júnior picked up pace and put a hook in the center for Real right-back Álvaro Odriozola to twist the ball flat into the far corner. For Mallorca it was the only shot on goal throughout the match.
Madrid dominated the game as the match continued, with Vinicius Jr. in particular attacking on the left side repeatedly. To scoring it was not enough. The pressure on the hosts diminished, as the already warned Odriozola in a counterattack Mallorquín Júnior reorganized and quite rightly flew with yellow-red from the square (74.).
