Mallorca vs Real Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: 14 March 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca).
Karim Benzema proved to be Real Madrid’s hero once again on Wednesday evening when his amazing second-half hat-trick inspired the team’s huge comeback against mighty PSG in the last 16 round of the UEFA Champions League.
Los Blancos thus advanced to the quarterfinal of the elite continental competition despite losing the first leg 1-0 in Paris and despite trailing at the half-time of the reverse fixture in Madrid.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men took advantage of an outstanding chemistry in their dressing room. Everything is going superb for them right now.
Los Blancos are now eight points clear at the top of the league standings after a 4-1 comeback win over Real Sociedad last weekend.
Interestingly, Real Madrid allowed just one shot in total to Sociedad who are anything but a naïve opposition.
Ancelotti’s men will have a nice chance to maintain such a wonderful winning run on Monday night when they travel to Visit Mallorca Estadi to take on Mallorca in the last match of the 28th La Liga round.
Mallorca will enter the tie in a completely opposite mood after suffering their fourth subsequent defeat in the league last weekend at Abanca-Balaidos where they conceded four goals to Celta Vigo.
Mallorca vs Real Madrid Head-to-head
- Real Madrid have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup, winning seven of the last eight meetings with Mallorca.
- Real Madrid bagged five or more goals in three of the last five clashes against Mallorca.
- The streak includes this season’s 6-1 victory for Los Blancos at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Mallorca vs Real Madrid Prediction
Mallorca lost four consecutive La Liga outings. They are almost in the danger area and do not really have much to hope for here against the red-hot Real Madrid side. The visitors are flying high after a huge Champions League success and we expect them to back it up on Monday in Palma de Mallorca.
Karim Benzema, who completed a hat-trick in the victory over PSG on Wednesday, is 1.72 to score anytime here against the struggling defense of Mallorca’s.
