Atletico will face RCD Mallorca in week 31 of the 2022/2023 Spanish League which can be watched via live streaming on ESPN+ on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, ET.
Atletico Madrid will host Mallorca at the Estádio Cívitas Metropolitano in week 31 of LaLiga 2022-2023, Wednesday afternoon ET. The hosts are ambitious to win in order to maintain their position in third place in the standings and secure a ticket to the Champions League next season.
Atletico Madrid currently has 60 points from 30 matches, 16 points behind Barcelona who lead the standings. They are also only four points ahead of fourth-placed Real Sociedad, the first club outside the Champions League zone. Therefore, Atletico must not be complacent and must aim for the full three points in this match.
However, Atletico will not have an easy task against Mallorca who are in good form. Mallorca are in 10th place with 40 points, only seven points behind sixth-placed Villarreal for a place in Conference League Qualification. Mallorca is also unbeaten in their last four matches, with two wins and two draws.
Mallorca even has a positive record against Atletico in the last few meetings. Mallorca won 1-0 at home in the first leg of the season, thanks to Vedat Muriqi’s only goal in the 16th minute. Mallorca also won in three straight matches against Atletico, by an aggregate score of 4-1.
Atletico Madrid must be wary of the threat from Mallorca’s attack led by Muriqi, who has scored 12 goals this season and is joint-fourth in LaLiga’s goalscoring list. Mallorca also has other quality players such as Lee Kang-In, Pablo Maffeo and Giovanni González.
However, Atletico Madrid is also not lacking in stars. Antoine Griezmann is their best player this season with 11 goals and eight assists. Álvaro Morata is also sharp with 10 goals. Atletico also have a solid back line.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone will be looking to break his poor record against Mallorca coach Javier Aguirre. Simeone has won only two of the eight meetings against Mallorca since 2012. Simeone has also won only two of the six meetings against Aguirre.
The match will be officiated by referee Juan Pulido Santana, who has only taken charge of Atletico Madrid’s previous game. Santana handed Atletico a 1-1 draw against Espanyol in November 2022. Santana has also picked up nine yellow cards for Mallorca in the nine matches he has been in charge of.
This match is predicted to be fierce and exciting. Both teams have high motivation to win in order to maintain their hopes in the competition. However, Atletico Madrid are slightly more favored because they are playing at home and have a more quality squad.
