Atletico Madrid vs Mallorca
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 4 December 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano.

Atleti are facing a tough challenge from arch-rivals Real Madrid for the title. Currently Diego Simeone’s men are placed second below toppers Real, trailing by four points.

However, the Los Blancos have two tough back-to-back games coming up, and this is the time to strike for the defending champions.

They are at home this weekend, and are pitted against one of the weakest in the league – Mallorca. Not only are Mallorca on a long winless streak, but they also have been one of the worst squads on the road in the entire competition.

Judging these factors, as well as past h2h stats, expect a win for Atletico Madrid this Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano.
