Real Madrid host Mallorca in the first game of the calendar year, and this should be a manageable game for Los Blancos. Key players like Carvajal and Vinicius are back with the team and Arda Güler seems to be ready to make his debut as well. Furthermore, Camavinga and Mendy will rejoin the squad really soon, increasing Real Madrid’s depth very significantly.
Real Madrid should try to build a decent lead in order to increase momentum and gain some confidence for the second half of the season. Mallorca will give them a good opportunity to do so, although Ancelotti’s men should not take them lightly.
