Atleti host Mallorca on Friday with a clear goal in mind: earning three key points in the race for Champions League football. The LaLiga matchday 34 fixture is to be played at 10 pm CET.
Our team picked up a point at the Camp Nou earlier this week – our 14th since LaLiga resumed. Our strong performances have allowed us to climb to the third spot in the league standings in a tightly contested race for Champions League football. Simeone’s men will also look to keep the positive home streak going following last week’s 2-1 win over Alavés.
In front will be Mallorca, who this week earned their biggest win of the season as they beat Celta 5-1 in a key game for survival. Vicente Moreno’s side are now five points behind the Galician team, who are 17th in LaLiga. Not only will our opponents be confident and motivated following their massive midweek victory, they’ll also be in need of a win.
When both sides met earlier this season, Atleti won 2-1 away thanks to the goals from Diego Costa and João Félix.
