In the 31st round of La Liga, the current leader of the standings, Real Madrid comes to the island of Mallorca after the quarter finals of the Champions League. Real enjoys a comfortable 8-point advantage over Barcelona, having 75 points after 30 rounds. Mallorca, placed 15th, has 31 points and has a 6 points gap from the relegation zone, which allows them to approach the upcoming match with a certain amount of confidence. Moreover, the latest visits of Real to Mallorca were not easy, as the team lost twice in the last three matches at Estadi Mallorca Son Moix. The first-round match was also not an easy road for the current leaders, with Toni Ruediger securing the only goal in the 78th minute.

Mallorca vs Real Madrid Preview 

Mallorca Preview

Mallorca, despite the relatively safe position in the standings, has shown a pretty decent display recently. In the last 7 matches, the Islanders lost only twice, to Barcelona (1-0) and in a penalty shootout of the recent finale of Copa del Rey against Athletic Bilbao. Mallorca understands that its main goals is not to drop to the relegation zone in the remaining 8 matches and aside from matches with Real and Atletico, the schedule allows the team some room for manoeuvre.

Real Madrid Preview 

Real returns to La Liga matches after a fabulous clash with Manchester City in the midweek, where the teams showed one of the most spectacular games of the season with a final score 3-3. The team enters the decisive part of the season, where it has to play against Barcelona, Manchester City and Real Soceidad in 2 weeks. With the injury epidemic seems to be over, Carlo Ancelotti finally enjoys a relative squad depth and can rotate the squad in certain matches, allowing such wonderkids as Arda Guler and Brahim Diaz to show themselves. It is likely that the match against Mallorca will feature players that spent most of their season on the bench, which will give the team so-needed freshness, but at the same time will give opportunities to Mallorca, as the connection between such players is not that developed.
