  • Date – Saturday, May 04
  • Kick-off Time – 8:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Estadi Mallorca Son Moix

Mallorca will host Atletico Madrid in a crucial weekend clash in La Liga on Saturday, May 04. Both sides are pole part in the league standings and Atletico Madrid are aiming to make it successive victories against the struggling hosts.

Mallorca have won five, drawn seven, and lost four times in their last 16 home games this season. Despite languishing just above the relegation zone this season, Mallorca ended up in the Copa del Rey final which they eventually lost to Athletic Bilbao on penalties after the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Atletico Madrid are sitting comfortably at the top-four of the table but will need to ensure at least two wins in their last five games to secure a Champions League qualification for next season. They have collected 64 points from their 33 league encounters and the visitors boast one of the best defence and attack in the entire league. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in Atletico Madrid’s favour with a narrow 1-0 victory. But they have won only once in their last five games away from home.

Mallorca succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the reverse fixture who have lost the Copa del Rey final to 24-time champions Athletic Bilbao earlier this month. The hosts have endured a dreadful season but will probably manage to avoid the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid have won the most recent game between both clubs. Diego Simeone’s men will be hoping to strengthen their position in the top four of the league table in the final weeks of the campaign. They would need to secure a minimum of five wins from their remaining five fixtures to secure a Champions League spot for next season.
