Real Madrid unfolds against Mallorca, Eden Hazard plays an hour without being decisive

Real Madrid continues to chain. For its 7th official match this season, the Merengues have scored a seventh success. Mallorca will have deceived a half. Eden Hazard started and played an hour of play.

It’s a first this season and only the second time in 2022: Eden Hazard starts in a La Liga game for Real. An event in itself, possible following the injury of Karim Benzema occurred Tuesday at Glasgow in Champions League. The opportunity for Hazard to show that he is much better, as he did during his hour of play against Celtic with a goal and an assist.

In front of Majorcathe first Belgian to show himself is not Eden but Thibaut Courtois, holder of the Madrid cages. After a few seconds of play, the goalkeeper must relax to repel the sending of Muriqi.

At the other end of the field, we do not see much Eden Hazard. The Belgian, lined up in place of Benzema at the forefront of the Madrid attack, holds his position and serves as a fixing point for Real to push back the Mallorca defense. A role that allows above all Rodrygo especially to flourish.

But it is Mallorca who will create the surprise. On a stopped phase, Muriqi opened the scoring with an overpowered header at the far post, unstoppable on Thibault Courtois.

Real reacts in stoppage time in the first period. Short raise from Courtois for Ceballos who gives the ball to Fede Valverde. The Uruguayan then launches into a raid of more than 50m concluded by a sublime strike from the left in the skylight of Rajkovic.
