Real Madrid leapfrog Barcelona for La Liga lead after win over Mallorca

Baku, June 25, AZERTAC

Real Madrid eased to a 2-0 home victory over Mallorca on Wednesday thanks to goals in each half from Vinicius Junior and Sergio Ramos to stay in charge of the La Liga title race ahead of Barcelona, according to ESPN.

Brazilian youngster Vinicius opened the scoring with a cool finish in the 19th minute after missing an earlier chance and he hit the crossbar later in the first half.

Captain Ramos doubled Madrid's lead with a superb free kick, curling the ball over the wall and into the top corner to score his eighth goal of the league season and his 10th in all competitions.

Real's fourth win in a row since the season returned took them back to the top of the table on 68 points after 31 games, level with Barcelona but ahead of the Catalans due to their superior head-to-head record.
