Mallorca 0-1 Real Madrid: Real Madrid Edges Mallorca with Tchouameni's Strike Ahead of Key Fixtures

Real Madrid secured a crucial victory over Mallorca in La Liga with Aurelien Tchouameni’s impressive long-range goal setting them up for a pivotal week in their season. The match, played between the league leaders and 15th-placed Mallorca, saw Tchouameni’s strike early in the second half prove decisive.

With a focus on their upcoming Champions League clash against Manchester City, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti opted to rest key players like Dani Carvajal, Eduardo Camavinga, Toni Kroos, and Vinicius Junior. This led to a scrappy performance against a resilient Mallorca side, fresh from their Copa del Rey final defeat.

The breakthrough came when Tchouameni’s strike from 35 yards out took a deflection off Manu Morlanes, leaving Mallorca goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic with no chance. Despite some late nerves, Real Madrid managed to hold on to secure the win.

Real Madrid currently sits comfortably atop the La Liga table, 11 points ahead of second-placed Barcelona, who face Cadiz next. This victory keeps Los Blancos on course for Liga glory as they head into a crucial period with the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City and the upcoming El Clasico against Barcelona.
