Who will climb away from the relegation places with victory in Palma?
Mallorca kick off one point and one place above their hosts, despite being beaten 4-1 at the Bernabéu last weekend.
Vedat Muriqi’s first half header gave Mallorca a shock lead against Real Madrid, but the champions roared back, scoring some outstanding goals in the process.
Before this, Javier Aguirre’s team had enjoyed back-to-back positive results, beating Rayo Vallecano at Vallecas and drawing with Girona at home.
In the latter, Antonio Raíllo gave los Bermellones the lead just two minutes from time, only for Girona to equalise with the last kick of the afternoon.
Back at Son Moix, will Mallorca get back to winning ways?
Newly-promoted Almería meantime ended August by winning against Sevilla, but have since suffered back-to-back defeats.
Los Rojiblancos were beaten 1-0 by Osasuna on Monday night, having lost to Real Valladolid by the same scoreline seven days earlier.
Rubi will be very disappointed by these results because, if Almería are going to survive, they can’t afford too many defeats against direct rivals.
Will Mallorca make home advantage count in this one?
