"We did enough to win, we created lots of chances. They did too in the second half, but we deserved to win on the whole today," Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said after their clash with Sociedad.
"It's disappointing, but Real are a good side and can cause you problems. It's a draw that's a bit disappointing. The goalkeepers usually have great games here. 
}Remiro is a top keeper and he produced some great saves, especially the one from Vini when he tried to dink it over him. He's had a great game and it's a shame we couldn't get a goal."
The last meeting between Mallorca and Madrid in a league match was on 11 September 2022.
Madrid proved too strong for Mallorca as they emerged as 4-1 winners in a match that was played at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu - the second largest stadium in Spain.
