Our Prediction:

Atletico Madrid will win

Mallorca – Atletico Madrid Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 13:00

They are better placed to face their competitors, and that informs our decision to place our money on them in this match. Alaves will return to the field this weekend to tussle it out against Espanyol. Their overall current form is generally reduced compared to that of their competitors. Alaves have lost three of their last five matches with only one draw and one win to show for their effort. On the other hand, Espanyol has won three of their last five matches, emerging with only two draws and lost none.

We are confident enough that Real Madrid will once again excite their fans as they play at home. Despite a second-half red card to Attacking midfielder Modric, the visitors still managed to score two additional goals and silence the home team. The Zinadine Zidane men started in a bang as they beat Celta Vigo 1-3 playing away. Real Madrid is all excited and invigorated as they host Valladolid this weekend.

Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals against Celta Vigo and, as a result, they shared the spoils with the Galician outfit in Madrid. Joao Felix failed to impress in the goalless draw with Celta, but the opposition defenders should have the big-money signing at bay. Atletico Madrid are determined to stay in the race for the trophy and we predict that they will go for a victory in the midweek clash.

Atleti have seen a 2-0 loss at Real Sociedad and seemingly struggled to bounce back, sharing the spoils in a thriller 2-2 draw against Juventus and finally looking better at the back in a goalless draw against Celta Vigo on Saturday. However, theyll need more in the final third and Diego Simeone has to look for a cure for their mini goalscoring drought in Spain.

League Table

They were held to a goalless draw by Celta Vigo at the Wanda Metropolitano at the weekend and head into the midweek action in 6th place whereas they would have topped the standings had they found a winner in that game. As for Atletico Madrid, Diego Simeone will be content with the way his side has performed so far this season but results have deserted them since the international break.

They have sufficient depth in their squad to rotate without significantly weakening the team and some fresh legs could just be decisive here. Mallorca have shown enough to suggest they will be competitive this season but they may just be overpowered by Atleti here and the visitors ought to leave with all the points. Atletico Madrid will be hungry to get back to winning ways to give themselves a lift heading into the derby on Saturday.

Their best move this offseason was finishing a transfer of Joao Felix from Benfica. He is playing fantastically and he can really make a difference in a few minutes. So if we look at the way he is playing now, that 126 million Euros transfer fee could look like a good investment. As it was already said, they are in a great form, looking to continue their run and battle for the trophy as always.

Atletico Madrid are determined to stay in the race for the trophy and we predict that they will go for a victory in the midweek clash. Joao Felix failed to impress in the goalless draw with Celta, but the opposition defenders should have the big-money signing at bay. Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals against Celta Vigo and, as a result, they shared the spoils with the Galician outfit in Madrid.

A couple of goals for striker Ante Budimir will at least do his confidence the world of good moving forward and they will need the Croatian to continue on the goal trail in this one. Having failed to score in three straight matches, they did find the net twice at Getafe at the weekend but it was their defence that let them down as the Balearic islanders sank to a 4-2 defeat. Mallorca have played quite well in the majority of their games but finishing has been a problem for them.

Trends/Tips

Based on their historical head-to-head encounter and the current form, we are tempted to place our money for a draw but goals to be scored by each side. The two teams kicked off on a wrong note, but the biggest losers were Levante who lost 1-0 against Alaves. The Estadi Ciutat will be the ground where the match between Levante and Villarreal will go down.

Atletico Bilbao is currently sitting at position 5 of the table while their opponents Getafe are sitting at position 16. Both teams were locked to matches last weekend that saw the visitors narrowly edge out defending champions Barcelona ending 1-0. In this weeks encounter, we predict that both teams will score, but the visitors will carry the day. On the other hand, Getafe was no match to Atletico Madrid, in a game that saw the home team win 1-0.
