La Liga leaders Real Madrid extend unbeaten run – read the report

leaders Real Madrid gained a hard-fought win over Mallorca thanks to Antonio Rudiger’s late header.

Mallorca hit the woodwork twice as Antonio Sanchez’s header bounced off the underside of the crossbar and down on to the goalline, with Samu Costa also hitting the post for the visitors.

Those misses proved costly as Rudiger headed in from Luka Modric’s fine left-wing corner in the 78th minute.

Real, now unbeaten in 18 games in all competitions, are three points clear.

However, second-placed Girona will return level on points with Carlo Ancelotti’s side if they beat third-placed Atletico Madrid in the late game on Wednesday.
