The 20th round match of La Liga between Mallorca and Real Madrid will take place on February 5 at the Son Mois Stadium.
The capital club defeated Valencia 2-0 in their last match of the championship. This was the third match in La Liga, in which the team did not concede. In this series, the Madrid side won twice and broke up with Real Sociedad. Carlo Ancelotti’s charges remain in the second position and are 5 points behind leading Barcelona. In La Liga, Real Madrid have gone 10 games in a row without a draw (8 wins and 2 defeats).
Javier Aguirre’s side spent the last round away, where they lost 0:2 to Cadiz. In the previous 7 matches of the championship Mallorca managed without a draw, winning 4 victories and 3 defeats, and in all these matches one of the teams did not score. On the home field the islanders do not concede in 4 consecutive matches of La Liga, in the last 3 meetings the team won with the same score of 1:0. “Mallorca” is in the middle of the standings and is equidistant from the Eurocup zone and from the three outsiders.
Madrid team has lost only 3 times on the road since last February in the Primera, and in all cases the opponents were contenders to get into the European Cup zone. “Mallorca are not bad at home and it is not easy to score at their stadium. At the same time, the capital city has good statistics in head-to-head encounters – in the previous 10 meetings in La Liga the Madrid side scored 9 wins with only 1 defeat. Our prediction is a confident victory for the Royal Club with a high probability with two points.
