Mallorca vs Real Madrid: Preview and Prediction

Mallorca will be looking to bounce back from their heartbreaking defeat in the Copa del Rey final when they host Real Madrid in La Liga action this weekend.

The Pirates will be hoping to draw inspiration from their home fans at Son Moix, where they have won three of their last four league matches by a single goal. They will be confident in their ability to challenge the leaders, having already drawn with Barcelona and beaten Girona at home this season.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, will be looking to regain their focus after their thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday. They are still eight points clear of their rivals Barcelona in the La Liga title race, but they will need to be at their best to overcome a resilient Mallorca side.

Key Points:

  • Mallorca will be looking to avenge their defeat in the Copa del Rey final.
  • Real Madrid are still eight points clear at the top of La Liga.
  • Both teams have been in good form in recent weeks.
  • The match could be decided by which team can make the most of their early chances.

Players to Watch:

Dani Rodríguez (Mallorca): The midfielder is in good form and has a knack of scoring in big games.

Federico Valverde (Real Madrid): The midfielder has been providing plenty of creativity for Real Madrid in recent weeks.

Hot Stat:

The home team has kept a clean sheet in the second half in seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams.

Prediction:

This is a tough game to call, but I think Real Madrid’s experience will see them edge this one. They have the quality to score goals from all over the pitch, and I think they will be too strong for Majorque in the end.

Score Prediction: Mallorca 1-2 Real Madrid
