What a result for Real Mallorca! Junior's goal gives them a famous victory. The islanders will still be in the mix down near the bottom of La Liga this season, but they should enjoy this night. They were good value for their win. Real Madrid just weren't at the races this evening. Really poor from the capital side.

- End of 2nd Half
FULL TIME: Real Mallorca 1-0 Real Madrid
Militao heads a James freekick into the arms of Reina and that might be that. It's been a tough night for Zidane and his Real Madrid players. They look resigned to a defeat here.
Kubo hasn't really made much of an impact since coming off the bench for the home team. He quite clearly wants to make an impression against his parent club, but he's been hit or miss.
There's still time for Real Madrid to snatch something from this match, but it doesn't look all that likely. They seem to be tiring and their system since the sending off has been a mess.
There will be four minutes of stoppage time played at the end of the match.
Who knows what system Real Madrid are playing... it seems that Rodrygo might be playing as a right wing back. And that Brahim is playing as a centre forward with Ramos.
That's the danger for Real Madrid. They are sending so many players forward that there is so much space in behind for Real Mallorca on the counter. Courtois has to come off his line to clear.
The home supporters are starting to crank up the atmosphere. They are starting to believe that their team will pull off the unlikeliest of results. Real Mallorca are just four minutes, plus stoppage time, from victory.

Zidane's last throw of the dice is to introduce Brahim for the last five minutes or so.

Indeed, the goalscorer Junior limps off. He can be very proud with how he played this evening.
It looks like Junior might have to be taken off here. It's unclear whether the goalscorer has a hamstring strain or just cramp, but it doesn't matter much because he is coming off.
A number of Real Mallorca players have been excellent this evening. Baba, Gamez, Junior... they have all been standout performers for the home side. They deserve to be ahead.
What a block! Marcelo looked to have got in behind the Real Mallorca defence, but Gamez came across to make the block. What a game he has had. Man of the match? Possibly.
Zidane has a real headache now. Real Madrid are a goal down and a man down. And time is running out for them to salvage something from this match. Just over 10 minutes left to play...
- Red cardÁlvaro OdriozolaReal Madrid
SENT OFF! A huge blow to Real Madrid! Odriozola has been shown a second yellow card for a really foolish slide tackle on Junior and the away side have been reduced to 10 men!
Real Madrid have threatened for the majority of the match, but they have struggled to create clear scoring opportunities. Benzema has hit the woodwork but that's about it.
Real Mallorca are working so hard at the back to keep Real Madrid at arm's length. However, you'd have to assume that they will tire at some point. Can they last the distance?
PICTURE: Junior's goal is still the difference between the two teams.
Almost an immediate impact! Rodrygo got into a dangerous position down the right channel, but his pass into the middle was cut out and Reina dives on top of the ball to claim it.
Surely Zidane could have made those changes at the half time interval? Why did he wait so long when it was clear much earlier that Real Madrid needed something different?

- OnFederico ValverdeReal Madrid
... and the second change from Zidane sees Valverde come on for the final 20 minutes.
- OffIscoReal Madrid
- OnRodrygoReal Madrid
At long last, here comes some changes from Zidane. First, it's Rodrygo on for Jovic...
Well over the top! That was a waste from the Real Madrid captain. His team won a freekick in a dangerous position, but Ramos scoops a poor effort over the crossbar. Not even close.
It does seem that Real Mallorca are still somewhere between the urge to hit out on the counter attack at pace and the urge to sit deep and absorb the Real Madrid pressure.
Hard landing! This could be a concern for Real Madrid. Militao landed awkwardly on the ground after a massive leap to win a ball in the air! The defender looks fine to continue, though.
PICTURE: It's still not happening for Real Madrid.
- OffAleix FebasRCD Mallorca
- OnTakefusa KuboRCD Mallorca
This is interesting. Kubo has come on for Real Mallorca against his parent club.
Header wide! Close to a second goal for Real Mallorca! Budimir got on the end of a cross into the box, there wasn't much pace on the delivery and he directed his header wide. That wasn't far away at all.
The game is starting to open up a little bit. This is the risk that Real Madrid now have to take - they want to open up space, but that could also leave them exposed at the back.
It looked like the pressure from Real Madrid might be getting too much for the home side, but Real Mallorca have done a good job of getting out from underneath their own in the last five minutes or so.
What has Jovic offered Real Madrid this evening? The Serbian striker has really struggled to get himself involved in the match. Have we even mentioned his name up to this point?
Kubo is out warming up for Real Mallorca down the touchline. He could come on against his parent club. That would certainly shake things up. On the other side, Valverde is coming on soon.
Benzema strike on goal! Vinicius played the pass into the Frenchman and then made the run in behind. That allowed Benzema to cut inside, but his right-footed shot is saved by Reina.
It looks like Valverde might be about to come on for Real Madrid. It's somewhat surprising that Zidane didn't make that change at the break. His side quite clearly needs some structure.
The second half has started as the first ended. Real Madrid are well on top as Real Mallorca sit deep. It's going to be a very, very long half if the hosts can't get out from their own box.
PICTURE: It's been a frustrating night for Real Madrid so far.
Much better will be expected of Real Madrid in this second half. This would be a shock result if Real Mallorca can hold out for three points. Zidane needs to come up with something.
Strike by the sub! That would have been quite the introduction for Agbenyenu! He's not long been on the pitch after coming off the bench at the break, but his powerful strike flashes over.
- OffJoan SastreRCD Mallorca
- OnLumor AgbenyenuRCD Mallorca
Agbenyenu comes on for Real Mallorca. Real Madrid, however, are unchanged at least in terms of personnel.

- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Real Mallorca 1-0 Real Madrid. It's a surprising scoreline at the break. Real Madrid started well, they have had chances and have hit the bar, but Junior's goal is the difference.
There is a battle developing between Ramos and Budimir. Both players are fighters and aren't willing to back down. Can we keep a camera on those two? One to keep an eye on.
Dangerous freekick! James plays a deep ball to the backpost where Casemiro was attempting to get on the end of it. The Real Mallorca did just enough. Casemiro was offside anyway.
Isco is dropping very deep to pick up the ball and drive it forward. That probably tells you how little structure there is to this Real Madrid midfield. That shouldn't really be his job.
You get the feeling that Real Madrid are cranking up the pressure as we get closer to the half time interval. Real Mallorca are sinking deeper and deeper. They're holding out for the break.
Marcelo gets the shot away! The Real Madrid left back unleashes a strike, there was power behind it, but Reina does well to make the save and also hold on to it under pressure from Jovic.
PICTURE: Real Madrid need their experienced players to take a grip.
One suspects that we might see Zidane try to instil some sense of structure for the start of the second half. This has been a bit manic, a bit too fluid, from Real Madrid up to this point.
Real Madrid have looked threatening at times this evening, but with the exception of the Benzema strike off the crossbar you couldn't really say that they have created a lot of chances.
- Yellow cardJoan SastreRCD Mallorca
There's a first Real Mallorca yellow card of the night. Sastre is shown it for a shirt tug.
James' cross was aimed for Ramos at the far post, but Reina claims it. The Real Mallorca goalkeeper has done a good job of keeping his Real Mallorca side ahead in this first half.
This first half performance has demonstrated all that is bad about Zidane's Real Madrid. Yes, they have had chances to score, but they have come as the result of moments of individuality.
PICTURE: Look who is back on the island of Mallorca...
Replays show that Reina might just have got a touch on Benzema's strike on goal. That would have been an outrageous goal from the Real Madrid man. The away side need a spark of magic from somewhere.
Off the crossbar! Inches away from being an equaliser for Real Madrid. James' pass released Benzema, but the French striker could only hit the woodwork with his effort on goal. Very, very close to level terms.
Real Madrid came into this match second top of La Liga. A win here will put them top again, but that doesn't quite tell the full story of their season so far. There has been a lot of dips.
There is no doubting the potential Vinicius has, but he has a lot of work to do to refine his game in front of goal. He gets into very dangerous positions, but his final ball isn't up to much.
Shot by Vinicius! The Brazilian teenager cuts inside and gets the shot away on goal in a similar manner to how Junior did for the goal, but his effort curls well wide of the target. Poor.
This is an opportunity for Vinicius to stake a claim for a more regular place in the Real Madrid team, but the teenager has been very wasteful with the ball so far. He has to do better.
- Yellow cardÁlvaro OdriozolaReal Madrid
There's the first booking of the night and Odriozola is shown a yellow for a rash challenge on Junior.
Does Zidane need to make changes to his team? Real Madrid's midfield is too top heavy. Real Mallorca are finding acres to stride into every time they come forward with the ball.
It's all Real Mallorca now. They are taking the game to Real Madrid. They have been energised by the opener which admittedly came against the run of play. Excellent game so far.
Across the face of goal! Junior gets played in at the byline and fizzed a pass across the face of goal, but nobody in a red and black shirt could stretch far enough to get on the end of it!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... NO! Real Mallorca believe that they have scored a second goal, with Junior charging down a Ramos pass. Budimir then found the back of the net, but the flag was up for offside. Correct call.
Such is the intensity of Real Mallorca's pressing game that Real Madrid are now struggling to get out from the back. This is not the match the majority were expecting.
It sounds like an excellent atmosphere now. The home fans have been energised by that opening goal from Junior. Real Mallorca have a drive that was missing in the first few minutes.
Real Madrid look a bit shocked by what has happened in the opening 10 minutes here. They have been well on top, they have created the majority of chances, but they find themselves behind.
Odriozola is excellent going forward, but he is suspect when heading towards his own goal. He should have shown Junior wide. Instead, the Mallorca player was allowed to cut inside.
The problem for Real Madrid with this midfield is that Casemiro is the only player in the centre with a defensive mind. That was exposed by Junior there. He made them pay.
- GoalLago JúniorRCD Mallorca
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Real Mallorca 1 (7 mins - Lago Junior) Real Madrid 0. Completely against the run of play, Real Mallorca have taken an early lead! Junior cut inside and curled a shot into the far corner of the Real Madrid net! What a moment! The promoted side have taken the lead against the capital giants! Sensational!
Chance for Real Madrid! The ball was whipped in from James, Ramos and Militao were underneath it, but the cross was deflected behind for a corner kick. The away side are gathering momentum.
As expected, Real Madrid have taken an early grip of this game. They are seeing the majority of the ball. They are the ones pressing for the opening goal. Well on top at this point.
Real Mallorca enjoyed a sensational season last term, winning promotion to La Liga through the play-offs. They have struggled in the top flight, but they certainly have belief.
An early shot on goal! Odriozola surges down the right side and plays the pass into Isco. The Real Madrid playmaker gets the shot away, but it's straight at Reina who makes the stop.

Okay, here we go. We're about to get started. Kick off is just moments away.
Kubo is on loan at Real Mallorca from Real Madrid, but he has to make do with a place on the bench for the home side this evening.
Not long until kick off on the island of Mallorca. The two sets of players are in the tunnel ready to walk out.
Zidane clearly has one eye on next week's Champions League group game against Galatasaray. Real Madrid need a win in that match and so he has rested some of his key figures.
Barcelona's win over Eibar earlier today puts some pressure on Real Madrid to claim the three points they need to return to the top of La Liga with a victory of their own this evening.

Bare bones! Injuries have forced Zidane's hand with his team selection for this match. Bale, Modric and Hazard, among others, are missing from the Real Madrid squad for this one.
