Mallorca vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Son Moix (Palma de Mallorca).
The newly-promoted side are without a win in their previous four games, the last of which was a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Getafe on the road. Mallorca’s only win so far came in their opener against Eibar at home, and apart from sharing the spoils on one occasion, the hosts have since gone on to admit defeat thrice.
Atletico Madrid failed to bounce back to winning ways the other week after Celta Vigo managed to hold them to a stalemate at the last blast of the whistle, that too at home. Nevertheless, the squad are still just one point shy of reaching the helm and will be fancying their chances of piling on the pressure at the top by coming away with all three points this week.

Mallorca vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
The home team have been struggling to register a win, and there can be no surprises there considering that they have been away from top-flight football for quite some time now. Vicente Moreno’s men have just one win under their belt at the moment on home soil, while their other two fixtures ended in a draw and a loss respectively.
Additionally, it goes without saying that the visitors are a much more competitive side in comparison. Although they did stumble in their last outing in the league, Diego Simeone’s men are unlikely to let this game slip from their grasp and are expected to settle for nothing less than the win.
Furthermore, the hosts have been miserable in the final third, and have not found the back of the net in their last two games in a running here. Given that Atletico did open the scoring in one of their two away games so far, count on the visitors to be the ones to break the deadlock by all means.
