Mallorca vs Real Madrid betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

Real Madrid actually lost when they last visited Son Moix in 2019. However, aside from that, los Blancos have won their last seven meetings with Mallorca, scoring 25 goals in these matches, including a 6-1 win in September.

Real Madrid to win and both teams to score NO is 13/8.

Karim Benzema is 11/4 to break the deadlock and 8/11 to net anytime.

Match preview

Yet another famous Champions League night at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

Last Wednesday, Real Madrid welcomed Paris Saint-Germain to the Spanish capital for the second leg of their round of 16 clash.

It was all set to be PSG's night when, having already won the first leg at home, Kylian Mbappé opened the scoring at Madrid.

But, what nobody but also somehow everybody saw coming simultaneously was a classic PSG collapse.

First, Karim Benzema halved the aggregate deficit, disposing the goalkeeper before turning home Vinícius Júnior's pull-back.

Benzema then equalised in the 76th minute, set up by Luka Modrić, before completing his hat-trick just 11 seconds after PSG's own kick off.

This saw the 13-times champions go through 3-2 over the two legs and they eagerly await Friday's quarter-final and semi-final draw.

Back in La Liga, Carlo Ancelotti's side boast a healthy eight-point lead at the start of the weekend having hammered Real Sociedad 4-1 last weekend.

Eduardo Camavinga and Modrić turning that one around with a pair of rockets before that man Benzema and Marco Asensio secured the win.

With El Clásico coming up on Sunday night, will Real Madrid maintain their 15-point lead over their biggest rivals in Palma?

RCD Mallorca meanwhile desperately need points if they want to be welcoming Real Madrid, Barça and the rest to the Balearic Islands next season.

Luis García Plaza's side scored three times last weekend but still contrived to lose, going down 4-3 to Celta de Vigo at Balaídos.

Salva Sevilla appeared to snatch a point with an 87th minute spot-kick, only for Celta to win it with a 97th minute penalty of their own.

This means Mallorca have now lost four successive league games after their mini-revival in which they beat Cádiz and then Athletic back-to-back.

Los Bermellones start the weekend 16th, two clear of danger, but could kick off in the drop zone as this is the Monday night fixture.

Will Real Madrid leave Son Moix with all three points?

Mallorca team news

Manolo Reina won't be involved here as, despite being an unused substitute at Balaídos, he was sent off last weekend.

This matters little as Sergio Rico is the number one goalkeeper.

Takefusa Kubo scored Mallorca's last winning goal exactly four weeks ago but can't feature against his parent club here.

So, Vedat Muriqi's strike partner is likely to be Ángel Rodríguez with Fer Niño, Matthew Hoppe and Kang-in Lee seemingly out of favour.

Real Madrid team news

Firstly, Casemiro and Ferland Mendy, who missed last Tuesday's tie suspended, will both come straight back in here.

Nacho will therefore lose his place at left-back; he and David Alaba actually switched positions in the second half against PSG, something one doesn't see too often.

In midfield, Eduardo Camavinga goal against Real Sociedad and cameo in the Champions League could earn him a very rare start in La Liga.

Toni Kroos, who isn't 100% fit, could be rested for the weekend's match with Fede Valverde also missing out.

Marco Asensio will continue on the right-wing, chosen over Rodrygo, Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard or Isco.
