On Saturday night, Atletico Madrid and Real Mallorca clash at the Estadio Civitas Metropolitano in La Liga as the Islanders attempt to shock the capital outfit.Atletico Madrid form guide
Los Colchoneros recorded a 3-1 home win over Villarreal before the international break. The victory was Diego Simeone’s team's seventh in their last eight outings in La Liga.
Their recent decent form has kept Atletico in the league’s top-four, but they are also only four points clear of fifth-place Athletic Club.
Atletico have also been relatively prolific of late in the Spanish top-flight, having scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight matches in La Liga.
The men from Madrid have been formidable at the Metropolitano in La Liga, as they are unbeaten in 17 home league games, having won their last 16 matches. Atletico have been prolific in front of goal on home soil, having scored at least two goals in ten of their last 11 home matches in La Liga.Real Mallorca form guide
The Islanders are currently in 17th place in the table, only two points clear of the relegation zone. Javier Aguirre’s team has been in poor league form of late, failing to win in their previous seven league games.
Mallorca have been goal-shy of late, failing to score in their last three league games, contributing to under 2.5 goals being scored in their previous four matches in La Liga.
The visitors have not found winning on their travels easy, with just one solitary win in their previous 11 away games in the Spanish top-flight. They have also failed to win in four matches away from home, having suffered three defeats and picked up just one draw.What am I backing?
Atletico are excellent on home soil, while Mallorca doesn’t travel well. The bet I am backing is a comfortable home win.
