Real Madrid 1-0 Mallocra

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid team took another step towards clinching the La Liga title with a hard-fought victory away at Mallorca on Saturday evening. Despite facing a tough challenge on the Mediterranean island, Real Madrid managed to secure all three points thanks to a goal from Aurelien Tchouameni. This crucial win not only maintains their lead at the top of the table but also extends it to a commanding 11 points over rivals Barcelona.

 

 

In a matchup between the league leaders and a team fighting relegation, Real Madrid narrowly defeated Mallorca, with Aurelien Tchouameni’s impressive goal early in the second half proving to be the difference.

With the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg looming, Carlo Ancelotti opted to rest several key players, indicating his priority of conserving energy and avoiding injuries. The starting lineup reflected Ancelotti’s strategy of ensuring his team secured the win without exerting unnecessary effort.

In the first half, the most notable scoring opportunity came from Jude Bellingham’s impressive long-range shot, which hit the crossbar. Despite Mallorca’s goalkeeper being beaten, the ball didn’t find the back of the net, leaving some spectators to argue that hitting the woodwork should count as a shot on target.

After the break, Mallorca continued to press forward but lacked the defensive focus they had shown earlier in the match. This lapse in concentration proved costly when, less than three minutes into the second half, Aurelien Tchouameni capitalized on a defensive mistake. With ample space near the edge of the box, Tchouameni seized the opportunity, firing a powerful shot past the goalkeeper with his right foot.

Barcelona vs Cadiz

Barcelona secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Cadiz in La Liga on Saturday night. With Xavi Hernandez observing from the stands, Barcelona fielded a mostly reserve team, keeping their focus on the upcoming Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain.

 

 

The win brought Barcelona within eight points of Real Madrid in the league standings after both teams played 31 games. Joao Felix opened the scoring for Barcelona with a clever overhead kick from a corner in the 36th minute, while Fermin Lopez came close to doubling the lead shortly after with a shot that was cleared off the line.

 

 

In the second half, Barcelona pushed hard for another goal, but Cadiz had a goal disallowed and a penalty appeal denied. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen made a crucial save to preserve the lead, denying Diadie Samassekou’s long-range effort.

Barcelona’s focus now turns to their upcoming clash against PSG on Tuesday, while Cadiz will face Girona next Saturday.
