THE PREDICTION

Mallorca pulled off a stunning 5-1 win over Celta last time out to give them a ray of hope in their fight against relegation but bizarrely that result flattered them significantly. They make the trip to face Atletico who have been in fine form themselves as they charge towards Champions League qualification. They come off a good draw with Barcelona and while Diego Simeone will make several changes to keep the squad fresh, they simply have too much quality for Mallorca. While the visitors are fighting for their lives, they are missing some key players here and the hosts should run out comfortable winners.
