Real Mallorca vs Real Madrid: Real Mallorca vs Real Madrid: Zidane pulls his squad together
Real Mallorca vs Real Madrid Injuries are having their impact
Of that team, only Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane will meet the Balearic Islanders again this weekend. Luka Modric could have been a third had he not fallen victim to the FIFA virus.
Since Madrid‘s win over Granada, they’ve lost Modric, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez, as well as the Croatian, and they’ll likely have one eye on their Champions League meeting with Galatasaray.
Additionally, Dani Carvajal isn’t travelling to Palma with the squad as Zinedine Zidane is opting to save him to face the Turks, plus Eden Hazard was a late dropout due to the birth of his fourth child.
With El Clasico now postponed though, Madrid‘s fixture list is a little lighter, meaning Zidane could possibly take more chances with the Spanish right-back. Nevertheless, Alvaro Odriozola is the most likely player to step in at Son Moix.
Brahim Diaz joins the squad as something of a novelty, having not appeared in the list since the trip to Celta Vigo due to a relapse with his injury and he could be given minutes due to Hazard‘s absence.
Twenty-thousand people will pack out the stands at Son Moix in a capacity attendance, hoping to achieve something they haven’t managed since February 2006 in beating Madrid.
That game proved to be decisive as Florentino Perez announced his resignation after the match.
