Atletico Madrid vs Mallorca Full Match Reports
Atlético Madrid maintained their flawless home record in La Liga, securing a 1-0 triumph over RCD Mallorca at the Cívitas Metropolitano.
Entering the match with a formidable 17-game home winning streak, Atleti unsurprisingly asserted dominance from the onset. Despite Mallorca’s resilient defense, the first half concluded without a shot on target. Samuel Lino showcased skill and speed down the left, taking on two defenders before delivering the ball to Ángel Correa. However, the Argentine winger’s powerful attempt sailed just above the crossbar. Álvaro Morata also neared success with two shots narrowly over the bar, though his offside calls marred these efforts.
Mallorca struggled to generate opportunities from open play, with their closest chance arising when Dani Rodríguez found Matija Nastasić with a driven free-kick. The Serbian’s header narrowly missed the far post. After halftime, Atleti intensified their attacking efforts. Lino continued his disruptive play down the left, setting up Morata, who narrowly missed the near post with his stab.
The breakthrough arrived just past the hour mark, orchestrated by Atlético’s talisman, Antoine Griezmann. Mario Hermoso’s precise cross found Griezmann, whose powerful header into the top corner ignited jubilation among the home fans. Despite Mallorca introducing Cyle Larin in a bid to stage a comeback, their misfortune was evident as Larin’s goal-bound effort struck his own teammate before safely bouncing away. A clear-cut chance materialized when Amath Ndiaye found himself in front of goal, but he lost composure, dragging his effort wide.
Atlético now ascends to third place with 31 points, level with Barcelona but holding a game in hand, trailing leaders Girona by three points. Meanwhile, Mallorca, with only a one-point buffer from the relegation zone, endures an eight-match winless streak in La Liga.
