(Real Madrid-Real Mallorca 6-1) Marco Asensio (25) was rumored to be moving away from Real Madrid due to lack of playing time, but he was very impressed when he got his long-awaited opportunity on Wednesday night.
Just 68 minutes – divided into five games – is what Marco Asensio has played for Real Madrid this season ahead of Wednesday’s game against Real Mallorca.
On Sunday, he remained on the bench throughout the match against Valencia, and earlier this week it was reported on a Spanish radio programme. spar Asensio was in doubt about his future at the club.
At home against Real Mallorca, Asensio made his first game of the season and the 25-year-old responded with impressive play.
Karim Benzema had already scored the first goal of the match two minutes later when Asensio managed to hit the ball from a corner in the 24th minute of the match. Lee Kang-in trimmed the advance after a minute, but the visitors’ hopes for points quickly faded.
Five minutes later, Asensio played alone with the goalkeeper and the Spaniard did nothing wrong. In the second half, Asensio topped everything when he hit the ball into the corner from 20 meters.
Thus, it became a hat-trick for Asensio, who himself is from Mallorca and played for Real Mallorca before being sold to Real Madrid at the age of 18.
20 minutes before the end of the match, Asensio was substituted, and he was able to see from the bench that Karim Benzema and Isco put the final score for Real Madrid 6-1.
Benzema’s goal is the French player’s eighth this season in La Liga and he has now scored 200 goals in La Liga. Only nine players scored 200 goals in the League before Benzema.
The victory means that the capital’s team leads the League after six rounds of the league, two points ahead of its rival, Atlético Madrid.
At the time of writing, Barcelona has fallen to eighth place, eight points behind Real Madrid, but has played two games less than the two Madridista teams.
