Head-to-Head

Most Real Madrid vs Mallorca match predictions had visitors Real defeating Mallorca back in February. However, Mallorca grabbed all three points, with a 1-0 victory, which snapped Real’s four-game winning streak in this fixture. In the reverse fixture last La Liga season, Los Blancos defeated Mallorca 4-1. Real Madrid are on a seven-game home winning streak vs Mallorca and haven’t lost in this fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu since 2009.

Real Madrid Short on Defenders

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid are in pole position in La Liga heading into 2024. The La Liga odds currently price Los Blancos at -400 odds to win the league for the second time in the last three seasons.

Jude Bellingham has been a revelation since joining from Borussia Dortmund in a high profile move. The English sensation has scored a La Liga-leading 13 goals through 18 games.

In their last match of 2023, an unlikely culprit got on the scoresheet to hand Real Madrid a win. Real went down to ten men at Alaves early in the second half as Nacho Fernandez put in a bad challenge.

Still Toni Kroos found Lucas Vazquez on a stoppage time corner for the game’s only goal. With Girona’s draw vs Real Betis, Real went back on top of the La Liga table.

Real continue to be one of the best soccer picks today and that’s certainly been the case in the UEFA Champions League. Los Blancos won all six of their group stage matches in the Champions League and are considered one of the main contenders for the competition.

Unfortunately, David Alaba recently tore his ACL and Eder Militao and Thibaut Cortois are still out with the injury. Defenders Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy are also doubtful for Wednesday’s match as Nacho is suspended.

Nacho’s suspension could force Aurelien Tchouameni or Eduardo Camavinga to drop into the center of defense. Still, Vinicius Junior could return for Wednesday’s match, which would be a massive boost for Real.

Mallorca Close Out 2023 With a Win

Mallorca fell behind seven minutes into their match vs Osasuna just before La Liga’s Christmas break. Over the next hour, Mallorca scored three times, through Matija Nastasic, Dani Rodriguez and Antonio Raillo to take a comfortable lead.

Raul Garcia got a late consolation goal for Osasuna but Mallorca finished the match with a 3-2 victory. It was Mallorca’s second win in their last three matches.

Heading into 2024, Mallorca are unbeaten in their last five La Liga matches. Mallorca were hovering around the relegation zone but they now find themselves five points ahead of the drop. The La Liga stats show that Mallorca have drawn nine of their 18 matches up to this point and only Real Betis have drawn more matches so far.

Vedat Muriqi missed Mallorca’s last match of 2023 but the Kosovar striker’s 15 goals were a huge reason they finished in ninth place in 2022-23. This season, he’s scored four times in 12 matches while Abdon Prats leads the team with five goals. Muriqi is questionable for this one and Jaume Costa is out suspended. Omar Mascarell, Martin Valjent and Toni Lato are also nursing injuries.

Match Analysis & Odds

Bettors should not discount all of Real Madrid’s defensive absences heading into this match. With Nacho out, Carlo Ancelotti is likely going to have to drop a midfield player into the center of defense with Antonio Rudiger.

That could lead to some organizational problems and provide an opportunity for Mallorca to get on the scoresheet. The first of our Real Madrid vs Mallorca match predictions is that both La Liga teams will find the net in this match.

Both teams to score comes in at +135 odds here, which provides solid value. Plus, both teams to score and Real Madrid to win displays +225 odds and is another solid bet. Real come in as -420 favorites for Wednesday’s match, while a draw sits at +525 odds and Mallorca are +1100 underdogs.

Real Madrid are comfortable favorites for this game. Bettors can take Real -1.5, 2 at -110 and Mallorca +1.5, 2 at the same odds. Over 2.5, 3 goals are priced at -120 odds in what could be a high-scoring match. Keep an eye out for status updates on Vini Jr. as he’’d make Mallorca’s job a lot more difficult on Wednesday.
