Real Madrid faces balancing act as they tackle Real Mallorca amid Champions League pressure

Posted : 12 April 2024

Real Madrid faces a challenging task as they juggle their LaLiga campaign with their intense Champions League clash against Manchester City, with the crucial second leg looming next Wednesday after a thrilling 3-3 draw in the first leg. Carlo Ancelotti's side, currently eight points clear at the LaLiga summit, must maintain focus domestically, especially with the highly anticipated Clasico against resurgent rivals Barcelona on April 21, as Barcelona aims to reignite their title challenge.


Copa del Rey runners-up Mallorca, despite missing out on silverware, have reason to celebrate a strong season and will provide formidable opposition for Real Madrid. However, Mallorca, currently sitting 15th in the league table, are also eyeing LaLiga survival, with only a six-point cushion above the relegation zone and eight matches left in the season.


Ancelotti faces strategic decisions regarding squad rotation to manage player fitness for the Champions League, potentially offering opportunities for the likes of Brahim Diaz, Joselu, and Luka Modric, while defender Eder Militao may make his return from injury. Ancelotti praised the effort of his forwards in the previous match against City and hinted at fielding a strong lineup against Mallorca, setting the stage for an intriguing duel between Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior and Mallorca's defense.


Mallorca, buoyed by their Copa del Rey final appearance, aims to capitalize on their recent form and capitalize on any fatigue or complacency from Real Madrid. With players like Nico Williams leading the charge, Mallorca seeks to upset the LaLiga leaders and improve their position in the table.
