Before they head off for the Club World Cup, Real Madrid will be in LaLiga Santander action this weekend as they visit Real Mallorca on Sunday.
It’s a big game for Carlo Ancelotti’s side as they look to keep the pressure on Barcelona, but it won’t be easy as Real Mallorca are strong defensively.
There is now a five-point gap on the Catalan side at the top of the table, but that could – at least temporarily – be reduced to two if Real Madrid win this early kick-off.
Mallorca vs Real Madrid predicted line-ups
It’ll also be difficult for Real Madrid since they’re without Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Lucas Vazquez and Ferland Mendy, all of whom are injured. That means Rodrygo should lead the line as the No.9.
Mallorca, meanwhile, have no injuries, although they are without the suspended Jose Manuel Copete for this one.
Mallorca’s predicted predicted line-up (5-3-2): Predrag Rajkovic; Pablo Maffeo, Martin Valjent, Antonio Raillo, Matija Nastasic, Jaume Costa; Dani Rodriguez, Iddrisu Baba, Inigo Ruiz de Galarreta, Kang-in Lee; Vedat Muriqi.
Real Madrid’s predicted line-up (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Daniel Carvajal, Antonio Rudiger, Nacho, Eduardo Camavinga; Luka Modric, Aurelien Tchouameni, Dani Ceballos; Fede Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius.
