Real Madrid – Mallorca Predictions and Match Preview
- A welcome second clean sheet of the season accompanied Real Madrid’s midweek UEFA Champions League 3-0 win over Celtic, an impressive effort considering defensive lynchpin Éder Militão was withdrawn at half-time through injury. With Karim Benzema also limping off, manager Carlo Ancelotti faces an early test of his squad’s depth if he’s to maintain his side’s perfect La Liga (LL) start (W4).
- If there are any concerns about Madrid’s backline, they’ve reassuringly only conceded once in their last five LL home fixtures (W4, D1) and with Eden Hazard impressing after replacing Benzema in Glasgow, they’ve got ample attacking options to ensure a repeat of last season’s 6-1 win over Mallorca in this fixture remains a possibility.
- Although Mallorca have only won one of the last 12 H2Hs (D1, L10), they might see Benzema’s absence as something of a relief considering he’s scored seven times against them. However, Mallorca can still expect a difficult time given the slow start to their LL campaign (W1, D2, L1), disappointingly conceding a late penalty to draw 1-1 at home to newly-promoted Girona last time out.
- Many Mallorca fans had already left the stadium, unable to cope with the hot weather and displeased about games being scheduled in the mid-afternoon heat, with some calling for LL president Javier Tebas’ resignation as a result. It’s another 2pm local time kick-off here, but in slightly cooler conditions, as Mallorca travel on the back of their longest unbeaten LL away run since January 2012 (W2, D2).
- Players to watch: Not since February 2018 has Madrid’s Hazard been on the losing side in a club goalscoring appearance (W22, D3) while Mallorca’s Vedat Muriqi netted their first goal in two of their last three matches.
- Hot stat: After matchday four, Mallorca had collected a league-high average of five yellow cards per LL game and Madrid a league-low 0.75 per game on average.
