Atletico Madrid will be looking to end the season on a high. The Spanish giants could yet finish the campaign in second spot in the standings, but they will need to bounce back from a recent defeat when they host Mallorca on Wednesday.
La Liga Preview
It has been a fine second half to the season for Atletico Madrid, and they could yet have their sights set on finishing second in the standings. They hold a six point advantage over Real Sociedad in the race for third, and they come into this match after winning four of their last five. However, their recent form was halted slightly in their previous match, as they fell to a defeat against Barcelona.
Atletico shaped up to play extremely defensive in that match up at the Nou Camp, but they did have three shots on target against the champions in waiting. They weren’t as clinical as they needed to be in the final third of the field, and many will be expecting an instant return to form when they host Mallorca on Wednesday.
Mallorca aren’t likely to make things easy for Atletico this week, as they have been hard to beat in recent months. The away side comes into this fixture having gone four without defeat, while they have picked up victories in each of their previous two. They could move up to eighth in the standings this week if they pick up maximum points on the road.
Mallorca was excellent in their previous La Liga match, as they landed a 3-1 home success against Getafe. Lee Kang-in scored twice in that success, with his second effort coming in the 95th minute.
Atletico Madrid vs Mallorca Head to Head
Mallorca has an excellent recent record in this fixture, as they have picked up wins in each of their last three against Atletico. Their most recent was a 1-0 success back in November. Meanwhile, they were 2-1 winners in their previous trip to the Spanish capital in December 2021.
Atletico Madrid vs Mallorca Prediction
Atletico has a poor record in this fixture, as they have won just twice in the previous nine against Mallorca. That could be a trend to follow for this Wednesday showdown between the sides, and a chance could be taken on Mallorca or draw in the double chance market.
