Real Madrid come from goal down twice to beat Mallorca 5-2
MADRID (AFP) - Real Madrid assistant manager Aitor Karanka said they must stop conceding poor goals from set-pieces as the Spanish champions twice had to come from a goal down to beat Mallorca 5-2 at the Bernabeu on Saturday.
The visitors went into half-time 2-1 ahead as Emilio Nsue and Alejandro Alfaro scored free headers either side of Gonzalo Higuain's reply for Madrid, and Mallorca could easily have gone 3-1 up before the break when Alan Hutton headed just wide from a corner.
"Set-pieces have caused us problems since the start of the season," Karanka told a press conference.
"It is due to a lack of concentration and communication and obviously it is something we have to keep improving on for the final part of the season."
