    Real Madrid stats

    As mentioned earlier, Real Madrid are undefeated in LaLiga as they have won all of four of their first matches.

    Real have yet to lose a single game across all competitions as they also beat Celtic 3-0 away in their Champions League opener last week and defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the Super Cup.

    Los Blancos have scored a whopping 11 goals already in the league, but have conceded four.

    In fact, the Spanish champions have yet to pick up a clean sheet in the top flight

    Real Madrid and Mallorca's first ever encounter took place way back in1960 during a 1-1 draw in Palma.

    Since then, the two sides have faced off a total of 68 times with Real winning a majority of 41 matches, compared to the Pirates' 15 victories.

    Mallorca haven't beaten Los Blancos since 2019 when they snatched a 1-0 victory at the Visit Mallorca Estadi – Carlo Ancelotti's men have won all of their last three meetings.

    The visitors also haven't won at the Santiago Bernabeu since 2009 when they picked up a 3-1 win

    Good morning from Madrid

    Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the LaLiga clash between Real Madrid and Mallorca at the Santiago Bernabeu.

    Real will be looking to extend their stunning winning streak in the league in their bid to defend their crown in Spain.

    But manager Carlo Ancelotti will be without key man Eder Militao and star scorer Karim Benzema as they both got injured during the Champions League clash against Celtic last Tuesday.

    Militao picked up a light muscle knock whereas Benzema sustained a quad injury during last week’s 3-0 win at Celtic Park.

    Benzema could be out for a month, which works as a major blow for Ancelotti as he will need to find a way to cope without his best player.

    Therefore, ex-Chelsea star Eden Hazard could start as a false nine and another former Blues ace Antonio Rudiger may line up alongside David Alaba at centre-back.

    Jesus Vallejo has returned to full training, but Alvaro Odriozola is again sidelined with a muscle injury.

    Luka Modric could be rested ahead of Wednesday’s clash with RB Leipzig and that could allow Eduardo Camavinga to start.

    Mallorca boss Javier Aguirre, on the other hand, will be missing Dominik Greif, who is out with a hip problem.

    Iddrisu Baba, Amath Ndiaye and Angel Rodriguez are also nursing an injury of their own and are likely to be absent
