Mallorca vs. Real Madrid: Zinedine Zidane to ease the pressure mounting on him once more?



Despite an unbeaten start to the new season, the pressure continues to mount on Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

The club sit top of the league after five victories and three draws from their opening eight games. But the French manager has come under increasing fire for his side’s performances.

Mallorca meanwhile find themselves in the relegation zone with just two victories to their name. They are therefore 6/1 to cause a huge upset and pick up a third for the campaign.

Real are 8/15 to extend their lead at the top with a win on Saturday evening. A draw is currently available at 3/1. 

With 13 corners in their previous two league games, Real will once again look to dominate their opponent. Captain Sergio Ramos will undoubtedly their biggest threat in the air. The defender is available at 12/1 to be the game’s first goal scorer, but will face stern competition from Karim Benzema.

The French striker is top scorer in Liga Primera this season with six. He’s 7/2 to open the scoring. His fellow attacker Eden Hazard scored his first goal for the club in the latest 4-2 win over Granada, and the Belgian is 9/2 to break the deadlock.

Gareth Bale can be backed at 5/1 to score the first goal of the game. And fellow forward Vinicius Junior currently at 11/2 to find the net first.

Home side Mallorca are 15/4 to score two goals against the league leaders. But with just six goals from their eight Liga Primera matches, they are among the lowest goal scorers in the league. The hosts are 6/5 to fail to find the net against Zidane’s outfit.

28-year-old forward Ante Budimir has 50% of those six league goals, and will therefore provide the greatest threat to an experienced Madrid backline. It’s 11/5 for the home side to get off to a good start and take an early lead, with odds of 9/1 for their top scorer to find the first goal of the game, and 13/5 for him to score anytime.

Madrid will have to put their Champions League form aside, with a loss at PSG and a home draw with Club Brugge condemning Los Blancos to the bottom of the group. 

Their total of 16 league goals is, however, behind only Barcelona and Villarreal. And their attacking prowess has been combined with several resolute displays at the back, thus guiding them to a two point advantage over the Catalan club.
