- Atletico have won ten of their 16 home games.

Atletico are unbeaten in their last 11 league games
Atletico dented Barcelona’s title challenge on Tuesday night as they secured a 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou thanks to a brace of penalties from Saul. Mallorca ended their winless run in a crucial relegation six-pointer at home to a Celta Vigo side that sit one place above them in the La Liga table. Budimir netted a brace as Mallorca claimed a 5-1 win to move to within 5pts of Celta Vigo in the race against relegation but still remain in the bottom three with five games left to play.
Atletico won 2-0 in their reverse league fixture against Mallorca back in September courtesy of a Costa strike in the first half and another from Felix in the second. Friday’s hosts have only lost one of their last seven matches against Mallorca and head into their latest encounter as the clear form favourites with four wins and two draws from their last six league games.
Mallorca have to build upon their midweek victory
Mallorca have lost four of their last six La Liga games but that 5-1 win against Celta Vigo has given the relation battlers a platform to build from. Our prediction for Friday’s match is a home win with over 2.5 goals being scored and there are plenty of stats to back it up. The hosts have won three of their last seven matches against Mallorca, only losing once, and over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of those encounters.
Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in three of Atletico’s last five outings as well as in three of Mallorca’s last six league games. At least three goals have been scored in 56% of Mallorca’s away games this season and the visitors lost their last away game 3-1 against Athletic Bilbao. In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 3-1 win for Atletico as both teams have scored in three of Atletico’s last six matches as well as in three of Mallorca’s last four games. Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings between these two clubs and Mallorca have only failed to score in one of their last four outings.
The hosts are so strong in their own backyard
Mallorca will give everything they can on Friday but they aren’t the only side with plenty of motivation for the points, as Atletico look to strengthen their grip on third spot as Sevilla sit 2pts behind them heading into the final five games of the season. The shots only concede an average of 063 goals per home game while Mallorca concede an average of 2.25 goals per away game and face an Atletico side with the third-best goal difference in the league.
