Real Madrid will entertain Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium this Sunday as they look to secure all three points at home in La Liga. Los Blancos managed to earn an impressive 3-0 win away at Celtic earlier this month. Hence, we can expect them to fancy their chances of securing maximum points this weekend.
Real Madrid vs Mallorca: Talking Tactics
Carlo Ancelotti will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and will be forced to make some changes to his first XI. The Italian tactician could instruct his men to dominate the ball and create enough clear-cut chances to win this game.
Javier Aguirre will opt for a 5-3-2 formation and is expected to ask his players to defend in numbers and try to stay in the contest for as long as possible.
Karim Benzema, Alvaro Odriozola and Eder Militao will definitely miss this game due to injuries. Otherwise, Ancelotti has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this weekend.
Real Madrid Predicted XI
Courtois; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Tchouameni, Camavinga; Rodrygo, Hazard, Vinicius Jr.
Dominik Greif, Iddrisu Baba, Amath Ndiaye and Angel Rodriguez will be sidelined for this clash because of injuries. Mallorca are expected to line up with a defensive mindset in this game.
Mallorca Predicted XI
Rajkovic; Copete, Raillo, Valjent; Maffeo, Battaglia, Sanchez, Rodriguez, Costa; Muriqi, Kang-in
Eden Hazard will be given the responsibility to lead the charge for Los Blancos in the final third. The Belgian international has to figure out a way to put in a productive display by linking up with Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo well this weekend.
Both Eduardo Camavinga and Toni Kroos need to carry most of the creative burden for the Madrid giants in the opponent’s half.
Jose Compete, Antonio Raíllo and Martin Valjent all need to be at the top of their game if Mallorca are to have any chance of securing something from this away clash. The visitors will look to use the guile of Vedat Muriqi and Lee Kang-in on the counter this Sunday afternoon.
