With barely any time to enjoy the fine victory recorded at Mestalla, tonight sees Real Madrid once again in LaLiga action as the Whites welcome Mallorca to the Santiago Bernabéu for the Matchday 6 bout (10pm CET). This encounter will be the first of three home games on the bounce, with the visit of Villarreal in LaLiga to come, before the Champions League clash against Sheriff Tiraspol.
Following Atlético’s win, victory for Madrid would see the Whites return to top spot and make it 16 points from a possible 18. In the quest to secure the spoils, the hosts will need Karim Benzema and Vini Jr. to continue their stunning run of form. The pair lead the way in the division’s scoring charts on six and five strikes respectively and the two of them have hit a total of 11 goals, which is more than the tallies of all of the other LaLiga teams across the opening five matchdays.
