Brahim Diaz misses a header from point-blank range against Mallorca

The 24-year-old footballer Brahim Diaz wasted a golden opportunity to score against Real Mallorca. However, Real Madrid's striker failed to put the ball into the empty goal. Los Blancos faced Mallorca in Week 19 of La Liga on Wednesday. In the duel played at the Bernabeu, Madrid won with a score of 1-0 through a goal from Antonio Rudiger.

This result has a very important meaning for Real Madrid. Because, with the additional three points, Madrid maintains its position at the top of the La Liga standings. Los Blancos have 48 points from 19 matches played. Real Madrid has many opportunities to score goals in the duel against Mallorca. There was a golden opportunity for Brahim Diaz who failed to score.

In the 73rd minute against Mallorca, Real Madrid had a good chance. Rodrygo faced one one-on-one with goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic. However, Rodrygo's shot was blocked by Rajkovic. The 28-year-old goalkeeper edged the ball then found itself in Brahim Diaz's path. The Serbian is no longer in an ideal position to reach the ball again.

Brahim Diaz then dropped down to reach the ball. The former Man City player was able to reach the ball with his head. However, Diaz's header was missed. The ball hit the post and failed to enter the goal. Brahim Diaz might get more attention if Real Madrid fails to win the duel against Mallorca. However, he was lucky enough because Antonio Rudiger was able to score a goal in the 78th minute with his head.

Apart from his failure to score a goal, Brahim Diaz's action in the duel against Mallorca was considered quite good. "Brahim Diaz is in very good form at the moment. I don't know how he failed to score that goal, but headers are not his best quality," said Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.
