Atletico Madrid was passive in the first half and the defense was weak

In the first half, the visiting team Atletico Madrid started at a disadvantage. They were passively covered by the home team entering the penalty area many times, and they did not create any chance to attack.

In the 16th minute, the home team Mallorca scored a 4-man pass. The visiting team’s 29-year-old goalkeeper Jan Oblak and the defender were both defeated, and the home team’s 28-year-old striker Vedat Murić made a close shot in front of the goal. This is his 8th goal in La Liga this season!

The visiting team tried to turn the tide in the 22nd minute, which was Atletico’s only offensive breakthrough in the game. The then 30-year-old Alvaro Morata received a long pass from the right side of the penalty area and slanted the ball with his right foot into the far left corner of the goal to equalize the score! However, he was ruled offside by the VAR referee and the goal was disallowed.

Afterwards, Atletico Madrid struggled to create attacking opportunities. They had a free kick and an equalizer in stoppage time, but they were both saved by Mallorca’s 27-year-old goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic and could not score. In the end, the score continued 1-0. Unbeatable record.
