Real Madrid will travel to the Iberostar Stadium to clash heads with RCD Mallorca looking to stretch their two-point lead at the top of the La Liga standings. The Galacticos will come into this contest on the back of 4-2 victory over Granada before the international break.
Zidane Zidane will be confident about his team’s chances of securing a positive result, but he has to overcome a lot of injury concerns in order to the needful. The manager will have quite a few of his first-team starters missing in action for this clash at Mallorca.
Los Blancos will likely opt for a 4-3-3 formation with James Rodriguez, Marcelo, Isco and Thibaut Courtois all set to make their returns this weekend.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face RCD Mallorca
Thibaut Courtois will return in between the sticks for the Galacticos after missing out on his team’s 4-2 win over Granada earlier this month due to illness. The experienced centre-back duo of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane will lineup at the heart of Zidane’s backline as they look to keep things tidy at the back.
Dani Carvajal will operate in the right-back position as he tries to put in a tireless shift down the wide areas. Marcelo will slot in as the left-back in place of Álvaro Odriozola who started versus Granada before the international break. Zidane will hope that his defenders can do their job and keep the Mallorca attackers at bay this weekend.
The La Liga giants will probably set-up with a midfield three of Federico Valverde, Casemiro and Isco as they take up the responsibility of dictating play at the centre of the park. Luka Modric is sidelined and won’t play a part in this game due to injury. Toni Kroos is also a major doubt for this clash and will have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to feature versus Vicente Moreno’s men on Saturday.
Zidane could opt to go with the talented front three of Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez up top. All three forwards will have a point to prove when they face off against the Mallorca defenders this weekend.
Both Lucas Vasquez and Gareth Bale are significant concerns for this encounter at the Iberostar Stadium and are likely not going be risked.
