In their last league match, the Spanish giants took care of Real Betis at Santiago Bernabeu in an exciting 2-1 victory.
Elsewhere, Mallorca got 5 points from their four games so far in La Liga – two draws, a defeat, and a victory. They beat Rayo Vallecano 0-2 before sharing a point with Girona last week.

Both Karim Benzema and Eder Militao got a knock and were taken off from their 0-3 victory over Celtic. However, “It seems not so important,” Carlo Ancelotti said post-match. They would sit out for this one though.
Eden Hazard, who scored a goal against Celtic, is expected to start the match.

Real Madrid vs Mallorca Prediction:
The La Liga and European Champions Real Madrid are off to a good start of the season. They have won all their matches so far.
They took the UEFA Super Cup with a 2-0 goals victory over the Europa League champions Frankfurt. Carlo Ancelotti’s men took all 12 points from their four league matches and started the Champions League with a 0-3 goals victory.
However, they are yet to keep a clean sheet in La Liga conceding 4 goals and scoring 11 goals.
Mallorca would find it difficult in the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday afternoon. They have won only a game out of their four, coming off a 1-1 home draw with Girona.
We predict Real Madrid will get their first clean sheet with a victory.
Prediction: Real Madrid 2-0 Mallorca
