It has already been a famous week for Real Madrid, as they progressed through to the next round of the Champions League. They will be looking to extend their advantage at the top of the La Liga standings on Monday night with a win against Mallorca.
La Liga Preview
There will be newfound belief in this Real Madrid side coming into this fixture on Monday evening, as Carlo Ancelotti’s side could still do the double this season. Real Madrid are firmly leading the way in the La Liga standings, and achieved a memorable win in the round of 16 in the Champions League in mid-week.
Very few would have given the Spanish giants a chance against PSG in midweek after they fell 2-0 behind on aggregate. However, Karim Benzema produced one of the all-time performances in the Champions League by scoring a memorable 16-minute hat-trick.
They will be looking for a fifth win in all competitions on Monday as they look to open up a big advantage over second-placed Sevilla. Their latest league win was a 4-1 success against Real Sociedad.
Mallorca are the hosts on Monday evening, as they look to ease their relegation worries. They come into this fixture sitting 16th, and are just two points clear of the drop zone. That does mean that they could come into this game on Monday in the bottom three depending on results from elsewhere around Spain over the weekend.
Their form is certainly very disappointing at present too, as Mallorca have lost their last four in La Liga. They were involved in a classic last weekend against Celta Vigo, but ultimately ended up losing as Celta scored the match-winning goal in the 97th minute. Giovanni Gonzalez and Salva Sevilla were among the scorers in the defeat for Mallorca.
Mallorca vs Real Madrid Head to Head
Real Madrid have won their last two against Mallorca. However, they were beaten on their last trip to the stadium in October 2019. Real Madrid’s last win away from home against Mallorca came back in October 2012, as they won 5-0.
Mallorca vs Real Madrid Prediction
Mallorca’s recent form is a huge issue for them coming into a pivotal stage of the season. Madrid look more than capable of continuing their woes, and we would struggle to see past the travelling side given the confidence that they will be in after beating PSG.
