    Time:90'
    • RCD Mallorca
    • Real Madrid
    • 90+1' GOAL!!! Ozil is supplied by Morata and the German's cross-shot is turned across the line by Callejon from two yards out.
    • 89' Mallorca want a penalty as a late corner srtikes Morata's hand in the box, the referee apparently unsighted awards nothing.
    • 88' Youngster Morata is in the box looking for another goal for Madrid but a free kick goes Mallorca's way.
    • 87' Ronaldo the takes the corner and Ximo clears easily with his head.
    • 86' A good run from Ronaldo wins a corner for the visitors.
    • 85' Madrid are controlling all the possession in the closing minutes, Mallorca have given up the fight.
    • 84' The stadium is almost empty now as the disappointed home fans trudge home on a cold night.
    • 83' Essien is floored by NSue this time. The on loan Chelsea man is using his power and stamina to drive forward constantly down the Madrid left.
    • 82' So Ronaldo will chase yet another Madrid hat-trick in these final minutes, he wants his 19th goal in 14 games this season.
    • 81' This is perhaps Modric's best performance for Madrid since his summer move from Spurs, the midfielder is playing excellently and still looks hungry for the ball with ten minutes to go.
    • 80' This win will take Madrid back to within 8 points of Barcelona at the top.
    • 79' The final substitution of the night is made as Xabi Alonso heads for the bench and Raul Albiol comes on.
    • 77' Youngster Morata comes on to replace Higuain who does not look happy to be going off as he's on a hat-trick.
    • 76' The last change for Mallorca as Marc Fernandez replaces Victor Casadesus.
    • 75' Di Maria's last contribution was that good pass in the build up to the fourth goal. He is replaced by Callejon.
    • 74' Another brilliant goal from the Real Madrid boys, Di Maria supplying Higuain who turned and quickly played through to Ronaldo. Then it was all pace from the former United man as he beat the defence to score his 18th goal of the season.
    • 73' GOAL!!! Anything Higuain can do Ronaldo can match. A brilliant ball from Higuain through to Ronaldo who slips it into the net for 4-0 as Aouate streams out of his six yard area.
    • 71' That was a class team goal from Real Madrid, with Ronaldo involved in attack towards the end of a great move, the Portuguese forward supplying Higuain with a well timed through ball which the goal scorer took on with his right foot and buried into the bottom right hand corner.
    • 70' GOAL!!! This game is over as a contest as Higuain slips into the box and doubles his tally for the night to make it 3-0.
    • 68' NSue is the best of a bad bunch for Mallorca, the only bright spark down the right wing, though even he is not looking likely to cause a comeback.
    • 67' No way through for Mallorca as Madrid clear their lines and surge forward. Then Xavi Alonso is booked for one of those silly gestures where he picks up the ball for a free kick when the referee feels the foul was in favour of the home side.
    • 66' Victor Casadesus wins a corner with a good cross which Pepe is forced to stab clear.
    • 64' NSue is giving Essien a few worries down the Madrid left, this time the ball just overuns the winger.
    • 63' Higuain caught offside this time from another long ball forward by Madrid.
    • 62' The game is flat at the moment with Madrid preventing Mallorca from retaining the ball for any spell of time.
    • 61' Mallorca look short of ideas and quality here, this really is not a good performance from the hosts. They had a chance to go level with Madrid with a win tonight but it does not look like that will happen.
    • 60' Caparros makes his second change to try and alter the balance of this game, Dos Santos departing for Arizmendi to join the action.
    • 58' In fact Anderson Conceição was booked for that foul on Ronaldo as the Madrid man was impeded on a goalbound run.
    • 57' Ronaldo gives Anderson Conceição the run around and wins a free kick close to the half way line.
    • 56' Alonso looks for Ramos from the resulting free kick, the central defender unable to direct his compatriot's cross towards goal.
    • 55' Yellow card for Bigas for a late tackle on Di Maria, who is unhurt.
    • 54' Essien gets away with a foul on NSue as he body checks the Mallorca forward.
    • 53' But Madrid are straight back up the other end and there is panic as Anderson Conceição nearly gives it away in the Mallorca defence, before he just makes up for his error and recovers the ball.
    • 52' Modric gives it away in midfield and Mallorca have a chance to break forward.
    • 51' Ronaldo knocks the ball long on a left wing raid towards the byline and tries to claim a corner. That was slightly pathetic, Ximo was nowhere near the ball.
    • 50' Mallorca have started the half brightly and look more animated than in the first period.
    • 49' Mourinho is grimacing at something on the touchline despite the scoreline. The Madrid boss is wrapped up warm in a big coat, as he was so often back in his Stamford Bridge days.
    • 48' Ronaldo is caught offside trying to run back into an onside position as the ball comes forward for Madrid.
    • 47' There has been one change at half time for Mallorca as Pina comes on for Fontas, who struggled with Madrid's quality in the first half.
    • 46' We're back underway at the windy and chilly Iberostar Estadi in Mallorca. Madrid will be looking to add more goals this half for sure.
    • 45+1' The referee blows the half time whistle and the players depart for the break, Higuain and Ronaldo's goals separating the teams by a 2-0 margin.
    • 44' A heavy foul on Ronaldo by Ximo goes unpunished. Ronaldo rightly goes down and wants a free kick but just gets jeers from the home crowd.
    • 43' Ozil and Ronaldo combine nicely on the left, before Ronaldo goes on a tricky run and is eventually robbed by Ximo.
    • 42' Mallorca already look to be waiting for the half time whistle and will be happy to get off without going further behind.
    • 41' Caparros takes a break from screaming at his own players to berate Higuain for a preceived dive.
    • 40' Mallorca boss Joaquin Caparros is an animated figure on the touchline, he looks stressed and is trying to influence this game in vain.
    • 39' Di Maria gets the ball 30 yards out from the resulting corner and tries to pick out Pepe at the far post, the cross just too long for the defender to reach.
    • 38' Then Modric tries a long distance effort from distance and the shot is deflected out for another Madrid corner.
    • 37' Mallorca hitman Hemed tries his luck from way out, a half volley dipping but still to high to test Casillas.
    • 35' It's a cold, cold night in the holiday destination of Mallorca and many of the home supporters have decided to watch this on television tonight as there are empty seats around the ground.
    • 34' A great first touch by Ozil to bring the ball down in midfield, before his heavy pass to Di Maria runs out on the right.
    • 33' Ronaldo involved again, fed by Ozil in the box with a good chance to hit the target. This time Ronaldo fires wide. He can sense more goals tonight.
    • 31' Ronaldo wants another corner, after Madrid get three in two minutes, with the former Manchester United man outjumped by Anderson Conceição who heads clear and chuckles as the referee awards a goal kick.
    • 30' Another corner for Madrid this time on the left and Pepe is adjudged to have fouled Mallorca 'keeper Aouate.
    • 29' Higuain wins a corner, taken by Di Maria and cleared by the Mallorcans.
    • 28' Madrid getting plenty of joy through the middle as Modric, Alonso and Ozil dominate the midfield.
    • 27' Ronaldo is caught just offside as the ball is pumped forward from the Madrid defence by Pepe.
    • 26' Real Madrid have not been travelling too well this season having won just two of their five away fixtures thus far in Spain this term, so this is good news for Mourinho so far tonight.
    • 25' Head tennis in midfield before Mallorca burst forward and Dos Santos blasts over.
    • 24' So with 17 goals in 14 games in all competitions so far this season Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in any of Europe's big five domestic leagues at present.
    • 23' That was a typically classy simple finish from the World Player of The Year candidate as he took one touch to beat his marker and drilled home. He is now on an eight match scoring run.
    • 22' GOAL!!! Ronaldo makes in 2-0 as Di Maria and Higuain combine to find the majestic Portuguese just inside the box and he fires a right foot shot low across the goal into the bottom left corner.
    • 20' NSue and Dos Santos are trying their best to forge a way back into the game, before Dos Santos gives the ball away cheaply on the right.
    • 19' Mallorca are yet to win this season having been behind in a match. They have also not been able to secure a home win over Real Madrid in the league in any of their last six tries. The corresponding fixture last term resulted in a 2-1 win for the men from Madrid.
    • 18' A good save from Casillas who plucks a miss-hit goalbound cross from NSue out of the air with a spectacular dive.
    • 17' Two corners in quick succession are dealt with by the Madrid defence, although they are trying to play the offside trap and have been caught out a couple of times already.
    • 16' Essien concedes a corner as NSue rushes forward and pressures him.
    • 15' Madrid are getting loads of room down their right with Ramos raiding forwards and Di Maria seeing plenty of the ball.
    • 14' The men from the Balearic Islands may not be on a great run overall in the Spanish league but they have good form at home, having won six of their last seven matches at their Iberostar Stadium, so they will still be hopeful of getting something here.
    • 13' Ozil almost slips in chasing a long ball forward, though Aoute is quickly out to the edge of the area to collect.
    • 12' Hosts Mallorca are on a losing streak of three consecutive defeats and have won just one of their last five matches in La Liga.
    • 11' Ronaldo then tries another long distance effort and it goes wide and high over the target.
    • 9' So Higuain nets his sixth goal of the season, although it's only his second in eight games. Real Madrid almost double their lead immediately as Ronaldo tests Aoute from distance.
    • 8' GOAL!!! A goal from nothing after an even start, with Higuain picking up a loose ball on the edge of the Mallorca box and smashing it into the net.
    • 6' Some good defending from Ramos on the edge of his own box, as Giovani Dos Santos tries to nutmeg him, only for the experienced centre half to come away elegantly with the ball.
    • 5' Madrid are of course looking for a positive result as they aim to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat to German champions Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
    • 4' From the resulting corner and the scrambled action which follows in the Real Madrid box Anderson has a chance to shoot at Casillas goal but scuffs his shot.
    • 3' Alonso takes the free kick and Mallorca clear the ball easily. Then the home side mount an attack down the right and Pepe concedes a corner.
    • 2' Ronaldo is fouled on the left end Madrid have an early free kick in a good position.
    • 1' Xavi Alonso crashes to the deck from an aerial challenge in the opening moments, but the Spanish midfielder is soon back on his feet. That looked nasty but he's ok.
    • 0' The game gets underway with Mallorca in red and Real Madrid in their traditional white kit. The stadium is not full but the home crowd are making plenty of noise.
    • 20.27 So Real are missing Sami Khedira (muscle problem) and full-backs Alvaro Arbeloa (hamstring) and Fabio Coentrao (groin), whilst their hosts face tonight's match without Antonio Lopez, Nunes and Joao Victor who are all nursing knee injuries.
    • 20.25 This should be an open and entertaining match given Mallorca's strengths on home turf and Real Madrid's weak away form and defensive injury problems. Of course Real are always formidable in attack and will be as desperate as ever to take maximum points.
    • 20.23 Here is our match report from last night's Barça match for those of you who missed it. Messi tops 300 as Barcelona hammer Rayo
    • 20.22 Barcelona’s 5-0 trouncing of Rayo Vallecano in Madrid last night means that Real Madrid travel to Mallorca 11 points behind their great rivals and with nothing less than a win required from Jose Mourinho’s men if they want to stay in the La Liga title race.
