RCD Mallorca captain Antonio Jose Raillo tells Vinicius Jr to kiss team's badge in Real Madrid win
| Last updated
RCD Mallorca captain Antonio Jose Raillo told Vinicius Jr to kiss his team's badge in the huge 1-0 win over Real Madrid.
Los Blancos tasted defeat for a third time this season after a Nacho Fernandez own goal in the first half was enough for Mallorca to claim a surprise win.
It means that Barcelona have the chance to move eight points clear at the top of the table.
And Raillo rubbed salt in the wounds by trolling Real winger Vinicius, who he has had run-ins with before. At half-time, the Brazilian was seen gesturing towards the Real badge and angering Mallorca fans as he walked back down the tunnel.
But then later on, former Espanyol man Raillo responded by ordering the former Flamengo man to kiss the Mallorca crest.

Vinicius looked furious and understandably so given Raillo has taken a number of shots at the 22-year-old.
In September, after a 4-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu he accused Vinicius of disrespecting his opponents through his dancing and using the race card when criticised.
"Vinicius should dance, but he shouldn't be foul, he shouldn't insult or belittle his fellow professionals; then when he is branded as provocative he uses the race card," he said during an interview Diario de Mallorca, as per MARCA.
That prompted Neymar to step in and defend his compatriot by writing, "Who is Raillo?" and adding a laughing emoji.
And more recently, he's caused a stir once again by claiming he doesn't view Vinicius as an example to his children.
“I refer to what I said last time, I’m not going to say much more about it,” Raillo said on DAZN’s Twitch channel prior to the win
“If tomorrow I have to set an example for my children, maybe I would put Modric or Benzema, but I could never use Vinicius.”
Real Madrid are next in action on Wednesday when they take on Al Ahly in the Club World Cup semi-final over in Morocco.
