Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid Tips, Preview and Predictions

Real Mallorca vs. Real Madrid, LaLiga

Atlético Madrid will be hoping to keep up a very impressive run of recent form to pick up three more points at the Visit Mallorca Estadi on the way to consolidating a Champions League spot this weekend. Mallorca will be more concerned with working out how to stay up in the top flight.

Where and when: Visit Mallorca Estadi – 9 April, kick-off 15:15

Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid Predictions and Preview

Diego Simeone will probably be very happy with the way his team defended at the Etihad on Tuesday, conceding just once against Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter final tie. He will also be expecting an easier ride on Saturday as he takes his players to Mallorca.

Atlético have won six in a row in the league to steady what had been some stuttering form at the beginning of this year. With Sevilla’s defeat to Barcelona, there might be a chance to climb the table – but the title looks beyond them.

Mallorca finally parted ways with Luis Garcia after the loss to Espanyol saw the club drop into the bottom three for the first time this season. New boss Javier Aguirre will inspire a fighting attitude at least – but Mallorca have now lost seven straight.

Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid full time result odds

Now is the time for Mallorca to turn around the woeful run of results they have been experiencing since the beginning of the year. The players may feel that a new head coach was needed and play like a different side – and they will need to. Atlético Madrid will fancy their chances here and won’t want to lose ground on Sevilla and Barcelona who both have easy-looking games. The away win is available at 10/11.

Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid both teams to score odds

Mallorca have had a lot of trouble scoring this season, with only Cadiz managing fewer in the league. Central midfielder and captain Salva Sevilla is the top goalscorer with four – and that probably tells you everything you need to know about the home team’s forward line. Atlético Madrid have been a little more open this season but there could be goals from only one side on Saturday, so a bet against both teams to score at 8/11 seems better value.

Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid correct score odds

After the test of a gruelling midweek clash with Manchester City, Simeone will be pleased to get back from the Balearics on Saturday with a win of any description. Don’t expect Atlético to go for goals, as it is just the three points that matter. They might have managed four against Alavés last time out, but a 2-0 win at odds of 7/1 seems more likely here.

Mallorca vs. Atlético Madrid first goalscorer odds

João Felix has found the net in the last few La Liga games for Atlético and he might be the one to go for to score first against Mallorca on Saturday. But if Luis Suárez gets the chance he would dearly love to remind Simeone of his ability ahead of a crucial second leg against the English champions at the Wanda Metropolitano next week.
