Real Madrid beat Mallorca 4-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday to return to the summit of the La Liga.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has hailed Real Madrid’s first three goals scored by Federico Valverde, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo but has hailed the goal scored by Vinicius Junior as the best due to its importance.

Ancelotti said: “The first three goals are what I want to take away from this game. They were of the highest quality.

“The best in my opinion was the most important one, Rodrygo and Vini Jr’s link-up play, and from then on, things got easier.

“It was a difficult match due to many things: the heat, the fact that we conceded a goal from a set piece… We kept our cool and little by little we turned the match around and got the win.”
