Barcelona vs Mallorca

Barcelona vs Mallorca Game RecapAccording to sports news reports, Mallorca’s five-man defense mostly contained the offensive threat from Barça. Thus, other opportunities were few. Mallorca had opportunities via Manuel Morlanes and Cyle Larin, and the home supporters blew a few whistles, but Joao Felix’s effort went just wide. After taking a hit to the ankle that resulted in the penalty, Raphinha never fully recovered, and Fermin Lopez came in for him after 37 minutes.

There was no improvement in the second half, and the referees’ whistles did not stop despite Joao Felix’s best efforts to sneak a shot in at the near post following the restart. The 38,225 spectators were the sixth-worst number all season.

Even though he was in the stands, Xavi was still out of his seat when Lamine Yamal curled a shot onto the bar shortly before the hour, shielding him from the jeers. That signal was to substitute Lewandowski, 35 years old, for Marc Guiu, 18 years old. In addition to Joao Felix, Vitor Roque was substituted. Roque’s upbeat show energized the audience. In the end, though, Yamal’s quality sealed the deal. With Sunday’s game in the bag, Real Madrid leads Barcelona by five points.
