How Asensio prove that he's a first-team player by scoring hat-trick against Mallorca

Ancelottis Real Madrid have started the season like a well-oiled machine, scoring 16 points out of 18 possible and scoring 21 goals in six games, but in his most recent victory over Real Mallorca, it was Marco Asensio who made his case to Sea a more regular entree.

A hat-trick against his former club was the culmination of a fun night at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, nights that have been rare in recent years, and not just due to construction work and the pitch being closed by COVID -19. A lack of offensive flair at Real Madrid had forced Florentino Perez to the breaking point, whereby he made a €200million offer for Kylian Mbappe, yet Ancelotti has steadily improved many of those issues so far.

In addition to the magic of Asensios, the 6-1 win over Real Mallorca also showed fans what the teams' midfielder will look like in the future, without any of Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric first time in 1015 days that Casemiro, Kroos and Modric have all missed a game together. The Real Madrids midfield was put in the hands of Fede Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga and Asensio, all three showing that the task was comfortable for them.
