Real Madrid team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Mallorca

Sports Mole rounds up Real Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Mallorca.

Real Madrid will be looking to continue their positive start to the 2019-20 La Liga season when they travel to an out-of-form Mallorca on Saturday night.

Los Blancos have won five and drawn three of their eight league matches this term to sit top of the table - two points clear of second-placed Barcelona ahead of this weekend's fixtures.

Madrid will enter the match off the back of a 4-2 win over Granada before the international break, and the clash with Mallorca comes exactly one week before the first Clasico of the campaign at Camp Nou.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Madrid's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's clash.


Marco Asensio
