Odds, picks & predictions
Real Madrid: -400
Moneyline pick: Real Madrid -400
Madrid are off to an impressive start to the season, not only winning their first four matches, but logging a comfortable 3-0 win over Celtic in their first UEFA Champions League match on Tuesday. They’re led by Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema, who both have three goals in La Liga play so far this season. David Alaba leads in assists with two, while Benzema has notched on assist as well.
Mallorca thought they had another three points in the bag last week after Antonio Raillo scored in the 87th minute to take a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately for Mallorca, Girona pulled one back in the second minute of stoppage time when Samu Saiz converted a penalty kick to salvage a point for his side. Vedat Muriqi leads the scoring for Mallorca with two goals, while Kang-In Lee has a goal and a team-high two assists throughout the club’s first four matches of the season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side shouldn’t have much trouble in this one as Mallorca hasn’t pulled off a win against them since October 2019. It’s the only time they’ve been able to topple Real Madrid throughout the last 12 years, as Madrid has gone 8-1-1 against the Vermilions since 2010.
