Real Madrid will still be on a high after coming from behind to dump PSG out of the Champions League in midweek. But Carlo Ancelotti’s side will now have to concentrate on domestic matters as they travel to take on Mallorca on Monday.
Where and when: Visit Mallorca Stadium – 14 March, kick-off 20:00
Where you can see Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid: Eleven, La Liga TV
Last time: Mallorca were 3-1 down inside half an hour when these two met at the Bernabéu in September. It finished 6-1 and is still Mallorca’s biggest defeat of the season so far.
Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Carlo Ancelotti may have a job bringing his players down to Earth after the spectacle of beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday. An incredible Karim Benzema hat-trick in just 17 second half minutes gave Los Blancos the famous victory and kept them on course for what would be a record 14th European Cup/Champions League triumph.
Real Madrid are also on course for the La Liga title as well. Just two defeats all season have seen them lead the way for the majority of the campaign and build a healthy gap between themselves and second place Sevilla.
Mallorca have the familiar threat of relegation on the horizon. They have become something of a yo-yo club in recent seasons and four straight defeats have brought them closer to the drop zone. A thrilling game against Celta Vigo last week ended in another loss and things are starting to turn bleak for the Balearic club.
Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid full time result odds
There are no new injury worries for either side going into this one on Monday evening but Mallorca will need to be on top of their game to take anything from the fixture. A victory for the home side can be found at 24/5 but it is far more likely that Real Madrid will carry on their run of good form and take all three points. The away win is priced at 4/7.
Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid both teams to score odds
You can find both options here priced at 17/20 and which way you go really comes down to whether you think Mallorca will be able to find the net. Real Madrid should be able to get on the scoresheet but Mallorca concede far more than they score – even though they did manage three against Celta Vigo last time out. Their desperate plight might get the better of them though, leaving Real Madrid to win to nil.
Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid correct score odds
There are good odds available for any kind of home win or draw here, but a Madrid win is far more likely – and it could be comprehensive. Ancelotti’s side won 6-1 against Mallorca earlier in the season and have scored three or more in three of the last La Liga games – as well as against PSG in the week. A more straightforward victory might be on the cards though and Real Madrid winning 2-0 is priced at 7/1.
Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid first goalscorer odds
After his heroics against Paris Saint-Germain, there will be a lot of interest in backing Benzema here. He can be found at around 11/4 to score the first goal but Real Madrid have shared around the goals this season. The better value selections would be Vinícíus Jr at 9/2 or Marco Asensio at 13/2.
