Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Monday’s game between Mallorca and Real Madrid will bring down the curtain on day 28 of the current La Liga campaign. Los Bermellones experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Celta Vigo, with the team extending their losing run to four games. Since Mallorca are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Real Madrid, home win should not be considered. Salva Sevilla is pushing for a start, while goalkeeper Manolo Reina is banned for the match following his sending off in the Estadio de Balaidos clash.
Los Blancos, on the other hand, came from behind to crush Real Sociedad 4-1 in their last league fixture. Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are eager to cement top position, and they should take advantage of Mallorca’s shaky defence. Both Casemiro and Mendy are back from the Champions League ban, while Kroos should miss out with injury.
Highlighted Player (Joan Sastre):
Joan Sastre, who started his youth career at Mallorca back in 2009, has been playing for los Bermellones ever since. Sastre made his senior debut with Mallorca in a 1-0 win over Peralada on August 20, 2017 and he scored his first ever goal for the islanders in a 1-1 draw with Badalona on December 10, 2017.
The pacey right back was born in Porreres, Spain on April 30, 1997 and it has to be noted that he has two caps with la Roja U19 team. Joan Sastre has established himself as a first-team regular at Mallorca, with the defender making 29 appearances in the Segunda Division last term.
The Spaniard was deployed in the starting line-up for the decider against Deportivo La Coruna where Mallorca emerged triumphant (3-0) and secured promotion to La Liga. Joan Sastre’s contract with los Bermellones should expire on June 30, 2023. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 13 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world.
Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
