Real Madrid vs. Mallorca: Preview and TV schedule

David Ramos

Mallorca face the tough task for trying to get points at the Bernabéu as they trying to claw their way out of a relegation place.

Real Madrid are on a roll having won six straight matches in all competitions and having not lost as home in 36 matches. Not too shabby.

Despite that, they're still well behind Barcelona for the league title despite having finally caught and passed rivals Atletico Madrid for second place last week. Now that Los Merengues know their Champions League opponent for the quarterfinals, they can temporarily turn their attention to staying in form and healthy, since that competition is their stated priority.

Mallorca are still in the drop zone but two straight victories have moved them within striking distance of Real Zaragoza in 17th. Getting a result against Madrid will be extremely difficult but if Los Bermellones can pull off a draw, or even a win, it would be a huge boost towards their hope of surviving to play in La Liga again next season. Michael Pereira returns after serving a one-match ban.

Real Madrid injuries and suspensions

Out: Angel Di Maria (hamstring), Iker Casillas (hand). In doubt: Sergio Ramos (shoulder).

Mallorca injuries and suspensions

Out: Jose Luis Marti (suspended), Javi Marquez (suspended). In Doubt: Pedro Geromel (hamstring).

Sergio Ramos is expected to start after recovering from a shoulder injury but anything is possible, so we'll list him as doubtful just to be safe. The same applies for Mallorca's Pedro Geromel.

Match Date/Time: 8 p.m. local, 3 p.m. ET

Venue: Estadio Bernabéu, Madrid, Spain

TV: beIN Sport USA (U.S.), Sky Sports 1 (U.K.), GOL T, Canal+ (Spain)
