Real Madrid 4 Mallorca 1: Rudiger scores first goal since Chelsea exit after Valverde, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo strikes | The Sun

ANTONIO RUDIGER'S first Real Madrid goal sealed a 4-1 comeback win over Mallorca.

The champions have made the perfect start to their title defence, winning all five games.

Los Blancos maintain their two-point lead over rivals Barcelona but left it late to beat Mallorca.

The visitors took the lead in the 35th minute through Vedat Muriqi, who headed in from a free-kick at the back post.

But Carlo Ancelotti's side reacted ten minutes later in emphatic fashion.

Picking up the ball inside his own half, Fede Valverde embarked on a sublime, slaloming run – leaving a string of Mallorca players trailing in his wake.

As he reached the penalty area he manoeuvred onto his left foot and readied a shot at goal.

His strike left goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic with no chance, arrowing into the top corner.

Mallorca continued to frustrate Real after the break until Vinicius Jr struck following good work from Rodrygo.

The provider then turned goalscorer after brilliantly rounding two Mallorca defenders with clever skill and close control before firing into the bottom corner.
