How can Real Madrid lineup against Mallorca? | La Liga 2021/22


The current La Liga table-toppers will be facing Mallorca in match week six at the iconic Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Los Blancos are thriving in all competitions this season and are still unbeaten. The host will be going into the game with brimming confidence after a stunning 2-1 victory against sturdy Valencia away from home.

Mallorca has also made a brilliant start to the season, having lost just once in the opening five games and are sitting in the top half of the points table. Luis Garcia’s men will be fearless at Bernabeu after an impressive draw against the Europa League champions Villarreal.

Dani Carvajal picked up a muscle injury at Mestalla and will be out for four weeks. The Spaniard’s injury is an unpleasant issue for Ancelloti, as there is no other natural right-back in the squad. We can Nacho on the right side of the defense with Miguel coming in on the left.

Carlo Ancelloti will want his team to play with greater intensity from the beginning of the game and secure a comfortable win against the Pirates to continue their undefeated streak.

Here is our predicted Real Madrid XI against Mallorca:-

Goalkeeper:- Thibaut Courtois

Courtois is at his best and made some sublime saves in the recent games. The Belgian will be hoping to get his first clean sheet at the refurbished Bernabeu.

Defenders:- Miguel Gutierrez, David Alaba, Eder Militao, Nacho

Gutierrez has given spectacular performances whenever called into action by the manager. Miguel was not included in a previous couple of games but is likely to start against Mallorca.

David Alaba has quickly adapted at Madrid and helped the Italian Boss to solve his defensive issues to some extent. The club’s management is also happy with their summer signing because of the character and leadership he shows on the pitch.

Militao has been solid at the back for Blancos and can pair up Alaba at the center. The Brazilian will have a grueling task against Nino and Rodrigues.

Nacho, who played as the left-back in the previous two games, is now expected to play at the right-back position after an unfortunate injury to Carvajal. The Spaniard is a versatile defender and can put on a good show on the right.

Midfielders:- Eduardo Camavinga, Casemiro, Federico Valverde

Camavinga has made a magnificent start to his career at Real Madrid, already scoring a goal and assisting one in his three substitute appearances. The new signing can get his first start at the Bernabeu against Mallorca.

The Brazilian will be hoping to put on a good show in front of the home fans after poor performances in recent games.

Valverde will partner Camavinga and Casemiro in the middle of the park. The Uruguayan is giving a tireless performance in each game.

Forwards:- Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior

Hazard needs to impress Ancelloti to keep his place in the starting lineup. The Belgian is looking fitter and more determined than ever.

The Frenchman is absolute class and is constantly providing goals for the club. Benzema has already netted the ball six times and assisted five in all competitions this season.
