Real Madrid vs Mallorca team news
Injuries and squad rotation mean there are likely to be plenty of changes in the hosts’ starting XI.
Dani Carvajal limped off in the weekend win over Valencia and is likely to join Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, Ferland Mendy and Marcelo in the treatment room.
Ancelotti may take the chance to rest Casemiro and give a first start to teenage summer signing Eduardo Camavinga.
Mallorca meanwhile also have serious injury problems in defence where they are missing three centre-backs Franco Russo, Aleksandar Sedlar and Antonio Raillo, while right-back Pablo Maffeo is also sidelined.
Real Madrid vs Mallorca preview
The first round of midweek fixtures of the Liga season should see lots of teams using their full squads to rotate players and fortunately for Real Madrid they have plenty of strength in depth.
Mallorca have less quality in their ranks than the 13-time European champions and with a number of key footballers missing, the visitors are likely to be in for a difficult evening.
Los Blancos are the top scorers in the division and boast the two most prolific players in La Liga, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
Between them the pair have netted 11 times, a tally which is higher than the total goals scored this season of every other team in the Spanish top flight, and even when Madrid have not played well this season they have found a way to score.
