Federico Valverde has stolen the spotlight this afternoon by scoring a stunning goal in the added time of the first half against RCD Mallorca.

The Real Madrid midfielder drifted past multiple defenders effortlessly, before unleashing a curving left-footed drive that completely bamboozled Predrag Rajkovic in goal.

Valverde’s goal helped Real Madrid cancel out Vedat Muriqi’s opener in the 35th minute as the two teams approach the half-time mark.

Los Blancos have their work cut out in the second half as they look to improve on their indifferent start to the proceedings. With 15 attempts on goal, there has been no shortage of effort from the home team, but they need that final end product in front of the goal.

Playing without their star man Karim Benzema, it will be interesting to see how the likes of Eden Hazard and Vinicius Junior plug the massive gap in the goalscoring department, as we look forward to the second half.

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
