Reason For Mallorca vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

After 5 games, Mallorca sit just outside of La Liga’s relegation zone. Their next fixture sees them welcoming potential title challengers, Atletico Madrid, to the Iberostar Stadium.

Mallorca will hope that their decent home form stands to them, in what will likely be their toughest test of the season so far. All 4 of Mallorca’s points this season have come in home fixtures.

Mallorca have failed to win a game since their opening fixture of the season, when they managed to beat Eibar. In the 4 games since then, Mallorca have recorded 3 losses and 1 draw.

They have inevitably not found their return to La Liga easy thus far, but their home form has been commendable. Mallorca have already claimed some unexpected points at home this season. On top of their opening day victory vs Eibar, they secured a point at home vs league leaders, Athletic Club.

Atletico Madrid are currently without a win in 3 games in all competitions. They have secured just 1 point from 6 in their last 2 La Liga fixtures. Last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Celta Vigo followed a 2-0 loss vs Real Sociedad the weekend prior.

Atletico are currently experiencing a tough run of games. Wednesday’s fixture will not be a walkover for the would-be title challengers.

There has been under 2.5 goals scored in 4 of Atletico’s 5 La Liga games this season. Atletico have had issues with finishing their chances this season. Despite signing Joao Felix, Simeone’s team are finding it difficult to replace the goals of the departed Antoine Griezmann.

Neither of these two teams are big goal scorers. We believe that this game will likely see under 2.5 goals scored.

In the absence of Griezmann, Atletico will be relying on their experienced forwards, Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa for goals. This duo scored just 8 goals between them for Atletico last season.

Griezmann’s long term replacement, big money signing Joao Felix, is still just 19 years old. While he may well turn out world class, a title challenging team can’t rely on a teenager for goals.

Atletico have been creating chances this season. Joao Felix, Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa should all have about an extra goal each according to their xG stats. This shows that they have been poor in the finishing department, despite the team creating good scoring chances for them.

Morata is likely to return to Atletico’s lineup following an injury which ruled him out for the entirety of September. This will be a boost to Atletico’s attack.

Despite their poor form of late, Atletico are just one point off the top. Morata’s return should bolster Atletico’s attack. We believe that Atletico will have enough quality to create good scoring chances vs the newly promoted Mallorca. We feel that a 1-0 victory for Atletico is a likely result for this fixture.
