Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sunday’s football game at Visit Mallorca Estadi pits together Mallorca and Real Madrid, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2022/2023 season. Los Bermellones have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team continuing with their old habit of impressing at home, while struggling on the travels. Mallorca are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in front of home fans, but they will have a big fish to fry against the title holders. Javier Aguirre should have a full squad to choose from for Sunday’s showdown.
Los Blancos, on the other hand, aim to melt Barcelona’s advantage in the La Liga standings, and seeing that they want this victory more than los Bermellones, away win should be considered. Despite failing to find the net in a goalless draw with Real Sociedad, a man to watch in the away team will be Karim Benzema, while all Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, and Lucas Vazquez should miss out with injuries. Both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni are major doubts.

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).
