"This team is full of leaders and we're lucky to have them," said Ancelotti at the pre-match press conference. Real Madrid beat Mallorca 6-1 when the sides met earlier this season, with a hat-trick from Asensio, a brace from Benzema and goal from Isco. The Italian coach has named all three in his squad for this game. Casemiro and Mendy return to the squad after serving a suspension in the Champions League.
