Atlético Madrid’s underwhelming form continues.
On Sunday, despite being up against ten-men for well over an hour, Atleti were held to a 1-1 draw by Espanyol at Cívitas Metropolitano.

This though means Diego Simeone’s side have only won one of their last four La Liga matches, finishing bottom of their Champions League group in this period.

Given that, Real Mallorca will fancy their chances of an upset.
Los Bermellones have already beaten one of the big boys this week, overcoming Villarreal 2-0 at the weekend.

So, will Mallorca compound Atleti’s misery at Son Moix?
