Looking at the pre-match facts, Atlético Madrid:
- have not been beaten in the league by RCD Mallorca in their last 3 games.

In that game, Mallorca managed 39% possession and 9 shots on goal with 7 of them on target.

The stats don’t lie, and Mallorca have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 12 goals in total. At the back, Los Bermellones have clearly had some problems. While that may be of interest, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend shall persist in this upcoming game or not.

- have left without a victory over Atlético de Madrid in games played away from home for the previous 7 matches in the league. They really have not been travelling well at all.

Team News: Atlético Madrid
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Atlético Madrid gaffer Diego Simeone to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Sime Vrsaljko (Knee Injury) is sidelined. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Stefan Savic and Koke.
It’s our opinion that Atleti look set to use a 4-2-3-1 system for the game, utilising Jan Oblak, Renan Lodi, Stefan Savic, José Giménez, Santiago Arias, Saúl Ñíguez, Thomas Partey, Koke, Marcos Llorente, João Félix and Diego Costa.
Team News: Mallorca
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Mallorca gaffer Vicente Moreno to be concerned with. Fabri (Foot Injury) won’t be in action. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Martin Valjent and Ante Budimir.
It’s our belief that Los Bermellones appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup, choosing Manolo Reina, Alejandro Pozo, Aleksandar Sedlar, Antonio Raíllo, Fran Gámez, Dani Rodriguez, Salva Sevilla, Iddrisu Baba, Takefusa Kubo, Lago Júnior and Cucho.
If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Mallorca won’t be heavily backed to make much of an impression against a Atlético Madrid team who should win very well indeed here.
We predict a resounding 4-0 victory (at least) for Atlético Madrid by the conclusion of the match.
