Real Mallorca were involved in a seven-goal thriller last time out but unfortunately came out at the wrong end going down 4-3 to Celta Vigo. It was a fourth consecutive defeat for the Catalan outfit. They sat 16th going into the weekend just two points and two places above the drop zone. A lack of goalscorers has been an issue this campaign with Salva Sevilla topscorer but he has only four goals.
At home, Los Piratas have lost their last two matches but prior to that had won three in a row. This marks the start of a difficult back-to-back home stand with Atletico Madrid after Real. A lack of home goals is an issue with five of their last eight in front of their own fans seeing them blank. They also are struggling for clean sheets here with each of their last six seeing their opponents net at least once.
Real Madrid will be full of confidence following their 3-1 success over PSG in the Champions League in midweek. In the league, they are unbeaten in their last seven matches winning five of these. They were eight points ahead of Sevilla in second going into the weekend and seem hard to stop in the title race. Karim Benzema does not get the praise he should as he has 20 goals and ten assists in the league this campaign.
Away from home, Los Blancos have won just one of their last three but have only been defeated twice in La Liga all season. The last three Madrid away games have seen a total of just two goals. Benzema has found the net on three occasions from his last four away matches. Three of their last five away games have been goalless at half-time.
