Mallorca will host Real Madrid in matchday 28 of the ongoing La Liga 2021/22 season on Monday night.
However, there are positive feelings around the camp of the Los Blancos as they won Real Sociedad last week in the league and later eliminated Paris Saint-German in the Champions League earlier this week.
They showed their class once again during the Champions League night in such a difficult situation, following the Suspension of Ferland Mendy and Carlos Casemiro.
With 11 games still to come, Real Madrid are confident of beating off competition from their competitors to win another league title at the end of the campaign.
Mallorca, on the other hand, are placed 16th on the league log and are looking forward to moving up high the table with their 11 games remaining.
Mallorca has lost nine of their last 11 meetings with Real Madrid in La Liga since October 2019. They’ve won once and drawn once in the other encounters.
They lost to Celta Vigo last weekend and would need to focus to return to winning ways at home on Monday, March 14, 2022, at exactly 8 pm.
Mallorca will be without goalkeeper Manuel Reina in the post as he saw a red card in their match against Celta Vigo last week.
All other players from the two teams are fit enough to be included in the matchday squad to battle each other on Monday.
Salva is a veteran footballer who has much experience. The 37-year-old has been Mallorca’s top scorer this season and has contributed to 6 goals this season. He has scored 4 and has assisted 2 times despite playing as a central midfielder. Age may not be on his side but his presence may provide some sort of boost for his team to at least secure against the league leaders.
Karim Benzema is in pole contention to clinch the Pichichi trophy at the end of the season.
The France international became the topic of town after scoring a hat-trick that led to the elimination of PSG in the champions league within the week.
Once again, his presence would be a major boost to Real Madrid to edge past their opponents. Benzema has 20 goals and 10 assists to his name in La Liga this season.
RCD Mallorca: Sergio Rico, J. Costa, A. Raillo, M. Valjent, P. Maffeo, G. Gonzalez, D. Rodriguez, I. Baba, A. Sanchez, V. Muriqi, T. Kubo.
Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
Mallorca 0-3 Real Madrid
