- +

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. 

Real Madrid's midfielder Luka Modric celebrates after scoring during their Spanish League football match against Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid on March 16, 2013. Three goals in six second-half minutes propelled Real Madrid to a seventh consecutive victory as they twice came from behind to beat Mallorca 5-2.

The visitors went into half-time 2-1 ahead as Emilio Nsue and Alejandro Alfaro scored from free headers either side of Gonzalo Higuain's reply for Madrid, and Mallorca could easily have gone 3-1 up when Alan Hutton headed just wide.
