Two teams headed in opposite directions will take the pitch on Wednesday in Madrid. Real Madrid has moved into a tie atop the La Liga standings with Barcelona, as each team now has 65 points. Real Madrid grabbed three points in a win over Real Sociedad, while Barcelona settled for a scoreless draw against Sevilla. Next up for Real Madrid is a visit from Mallorca, a team that almost certainly seems set for relegation, with just 26 points and in 18th place in the table. They are three points back of Eibar — and from safety from relegation. On Wednesday you will have two teams fighting with maximum motivation, as Real Madrid wants to keep the pressure on Barcelona, while Mallorca wants to avoid dipping into Spain’s second division. Take a look at the sports betting odds on the match as well as our thoughts about the outcome. Let’s see how the La Liga Odds will be for the Real Madrid vs Mallorca.

Why should you put your money on Mallorca?
Mallorca hosted Leganes — the 19th place team in La Liga — on Friday and could not deliver three points, instead settling for a 1-1 draw in a match that could have pulled them closer to Eibar. Mallorca opened the scoring in the ninth minute, with a goal from Salva Sevilla. It looked like Mallorca would be able to cling to that 1-0 result until the 87th minute, when Oscar Rodriguez Arnaiz delivered the equalizer for Leganes, as the visitors played the spoiler and kept Mallorca from moving further toward safety.
Leganes possessed for 62 percent of the match, as Mallorca withdrew into an all-defense approach after that early goal. Leganes outshout Mallorca 7-6 (4-3 on target). The game was definitely spirited in terms of physicality, as the teams combined for 26 fouls and nine yellow cards (six to Leganes). Leganes also forced seven corners to just three for Mallorca, as they brought the pressure after going down very early in the match. If you like Mallorca to have any chance against Real Madrid, you see Real coming out and taking Mallorca for granted — and surrendering an early tally, and you see Mallorca’s defense standing much taller in the aftermath than they did against Leganes.
Why should you bet on Real Madrid?
Real Madrid traveled to Basque country on Sunday and came back with a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad. The game went into halftime as a scoreless draw, but then Sergio Ramos converted from the penalty spot just five minutes into the second half. Twenty minutes later, Karim Benzema added an insurance goal for Real Madrid. Mikel Merino made things interesting in the 83rd minute, when he scored for the hosts, but that was all the scoring.
Possession was virtually even for the match. Real Sociedad led in shots, 11-9, but Real Madrid put six on frame while the hosts did it just twice. The teams combined for 30 fouls and six yellow cards (four for Real Sociedad), showing a level of physical commitment to the outcome. The offensive pressure did not mount significantly for either side, and the fact that Real Madrid came out of that stadium winning such a grind says a lot about their durability.
Real Madrid vs Mallorca Final Score Prediction
Real Madrid has been chasing down Barcelona all season, and Barcelona’s inconsistency has allowed Real to catch up. I don’t see Los Blancos falling off now, especially with two matches against teams in the relegation zone coming up this week. I see Real Madrid taking the action to Mallorca and delivering a resounding win. My final score prediction is Real Madrid 4, Mallorca 0.
