Sometimes everything is right, you make the perfect pass, go on the perfect run, and lob it in just right for the winger coming along the opposite side.

And how bad do the defense at Mallorca look? This is the newly wealthy side that’s supposed to challenge Barca and Real Madrid for supremacy? I’m going to say a mid-table finish for them this season, they’ve got a long way to go…
