Real Madrid will welcome Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Wednesday night as they look to build on their strong start to this La Liga campaign. Los Blancos managed to secure an impressive 2-1 victory over Valencia earlier this month, so they will be in high spirits ahead of this league game in midweek.
Carlo Ancelotti will probably choose to go with the 4-3-3 formation and could name the same starting XI that started against Valencia. Eden Hazard could keep his place in the side as he looks to support Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema in the attacking third of the pitch.
4-3-3 Real Madrid Predicted Lineup To Face Mallorca
Thibaut Courtois will feature in goal for Los Blancos after conceding one goal in his last league outing. David Alaba will resume his partnership with Eder Militao at the heart of Ancelotti’s defence as they try to keep a clean sheet in front of their home supporters.
Dani Carvajal will operate at right-back while Nacho fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will have to be more adventurous than usual in the opposition half if the Madrid giants are to come away with a victory from this midweek game.
Miguel Gutiérrez will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the left-back position.
Ancelotti’s midfield will once again be comprised of Luka Modric, Casemiro and Federico Valverde as they focus on dominating the battle at the centre of the park and creating some clear-cut chances for the front players to score.
Isco and Marco Asensio will have to settle for a place on Ancelotti’s bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress as a substitute in the second half if needed.
Vinicius Junior will get the nod to produce another productive showing down the left flank while Eden Hazard hopes to cause a few problems for the Mallorca defenders from the right. Karim Benzema will spearhead the Madrid attack down the middle. The French marksman scored a late match-winner against Valencia and will be eager to put in another goal-scoring performance this Wednesday night.
Luka Jovic and Rodrygo will be named on the bench but could come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if Ancelotti opts to call upon their services.
