Mallorca: Decent Run
Having avoided relegation by a singular point last season, Mallorca’s shrewd work in the summer transfer window has had a transformative effect on the squad. Mallorca are now unbeaten in three games, while also securing victories at Valencia and Villarreal.
Experienced coach Javier Aguirre has made the island side much tougher to beat, switching to a five-man defense to help get the best out of its skilled wide players. Acquiring Kosovan striker Vedat Muriqi has been one of the signings of the season, as the former Lazio player has scored in four La Liga games.
Contributing to two-thirds of Mallorca’s goals this season, Muriqi is the player to include in your soccer picks and parlays. Confidence in their camp should be high, and they could avoid defeat Wednesday against an Atletico outfit on the brink of crisis time. Hosts have a completely healthy squad, as the impressive Kang-in Lee looks to continue with in-form Muriqi.
Atletico Madrid: Out of form
It’s now four games without a win for Atletico Madrid, managing just a 1-1 draw against Espanyol, despite playing over an hour of the match against 10 men. Atletico still finds themselves third in LaLiga, level on points with Real Betis.
Atletico Madrid have totally crashed out of Europe, at bottom of their Champions League group with a defeat in Porto. Atletico, as usual, has been the best team in the Spanish top flight, after the two titans.
The capital side probably would not have picked a trip to Mallorca as the ideal fixture to get back in LaLiga. However, they are one of the best road teams, with five wins in seven away games. It’s the first time in quite a while Atletico Madrid are without any injuries. The likes of Yannick Carrasco and Marcos Llorente have fully overcome recent setbacks to return. They will be without crucial center-back Jose Maria Gimenez and Joao Felix (accumulation of yellow cards), so it’s dangerous to back them if you’re betting online.
Mallorca vs Atletico Madrid Head-to-Head
Javier Aguirre’s side is struggling to maintain clean sheets, managing just one in their last seven fixtures. They have also been poor on home soil, earning just one win in six games at the Iberostar Stadium (both teams have scored in half of those outings). Atletico Madrid’s away form is a particular concern, having lost recent games to Porto and Cadiz (both teams have netted in the last three). Mallorca did beat Atletico in their previous two encounters.
