The Portugal star's 19 goals in 16 club appearances in 2013 marks his best ever start to a calendar year, bettering his previous best of 15 goals in 2012. Ronaldo will look to add to his 26 Liga goals this season as Real Madrid set about clawing back their 13-point deficit from Barcelona.
The 26-year-old winger scored both goals in the 2-1 win against former club Sevilla last Saturday to take Mallorca within two points of 17th-placed Real Zaragoza in the Liga standings. Alfaro will look to get the better of a Madrid backline that has failed to keep a clean sheet in its last five outings.
With no midweek fixture to distract them, Madrid will go all out to record a big win and put some pressure on Barcelona, who play on Sunday. Mallorca travel to the Bernabeu after back-to-back wins over Granada and Sevilla, but they will have to work very hard to subdue the home side's attacking threat.
