The visitors will be looking to close the five-point gap at the top of the table, with league leaders Barcelona set to play later in the day. Meanwhile, the home team would love to go strengthen their position as they look to finish mid-table in the ongoing season.
Mallorca will be heading into this encounter on the back of a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Cadiz. Things did not go to plan for them against a struggling Cadiz side. But, they will be hoping to put on a better show for their fans against Los Blancos.
The Balearic Islands-based club returned to the Spanish top flight last season. And, they managed to survive after finishing 16th in La Liga. In the ongoing season, they have done much better and are currently tenth on the points table.
Mallorca have not survived for two seasons in a row in La Liga since 2013. But this time, they do have a better chance to change that stat. The Pirates have done a great job so far, picking up 25 points in 19 matches.
They might be tenth on the points table, but Javier Aguirre’s side cannot relax because they are just six points off the drop zone. While defeats can bring them closer to the relegation zone, a few wins can close the gap between them and seventh-placed Rayo Vallecano, who have a four-point cushion.
Aguirre’s major concern heading into the Real Madrid fixture will be the lack of goals. Mallorca have only managed 15 goals in their 19 matches. But, they will be confident because of a rock-solid defense that have only conceded 18 goals.
Of late, Mallorca have been disappointing with three losses in the last four matches in all competitions. Their home record is decent with 14 points out of nine games. But, what will worry them is that they have lost their last four games against the visitors.
On the other hand, Real Madrid will be heading into this contest on the back of a clinical 2-0 win over Valencia on Thursday. Second-half goals by Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior guided them to the win.
Los Blancos now have 45 points in their 19 matches but are five points behind league leaders Barcelona. With half the season still left, they do have a chance to close the gap. But, they will have to be consistent and cannot afford to drop any more points. Carlo Ancelotti’s men have the second-best away form in the league. They have 24 points out of a possible 30 while on the road. But, the interesting fact is both their defeats in the season have come away from home.
Real Madrid will leave for the Club World Cup after their match against RCD Mallorca. And, they will not feature in the league until February 18. At the same time, they also have their Champions League Round of 16 fixture against Liverpool.
It looks like a straightforward fixture for the defending champions. But it won’t be that easy despite the poor form of Mallorca because even Real Madrid have been inconsistent. The Hard Tackle takes a look at how the teams could line up and what tactics they might use.
Javier Aguirre has nothing to worry about as far as injuries go. But, he will be without the services of Jose Copete, who is suspended for the fixture.
The entire squad is available at his disposal, and he is likely to stick with his go-to 3-4-3 formation. While it is a back three on paper, the players that he uses suggest it is more of a subjective formation that changes according to the situation and the opposition. Expect it to be more of a 5-4-1 against Real Madrid, with the visitors set to have the majority of the ball. Aguirre is expected to make a few changes after their disappointing loss last time around.
Matija Nastasic is likely to start ahead of Copete, who is suspended. Antonio Sanchez might return to the XI after starting on the bench in the last outing. Dani Rodriguez might be left out for Tino Kadewere, who came off the bench in their 2-0 defeat.
Predrag Rajkovic will start between the sticks, Nastasic, Antonio Raillo, and Martin Valjent will be the three defenders. The midfield four will be made up of Pablo Maffeo, Inigo Galarreta, Antonio Sanchez, and Jaume Costa. Maffeo and Costa will play out wide as the wing-backs. Finally, Kadewere will team up with Vedat Muriqi and Lee Kang-in as their front three. Mallorca are currently in 10th place in the La Liga standings and have been inconsistent so far this season. The home side slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of Cadiz last week and will need to work hard to bounce back in this fixture.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, are in second place in the league table at the moment and have not been at their best this season. Los Blancos defeated Valencia by a fairly comfortable 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend. Mallorca vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head and Key Numbers
