In a crucial La Liga clash this Sunday, Mallorca hosts Almeria with both teams having significantly different stakes.

Mallorca aims to secure their top-flight status, while Almeria, already relegated, hopes to end their season on a positive note.

Team Form and Recent Performances

Mallorca

Mallorca, sitting 17th in the table with 32 points, are four points clear of the relegation zone.

Their recent form has been mixed, with a crucial 1-1 draw against Osasuna following a narrow 1-0 win over Las Palmas.

Mallorca’s resilience was evident in their recent matches, particularly in a hard-fought 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.

With only two games left, Mallorca needs a win to ensure their La Liga survival for another season.

Almeria

Almeria, on the other hand, has struggled throughout the season and sits at the bottom of the table with only 17 points.

Despite a brief resurgence under new manager Pepe Mel, which saw them win two games against Las Palmas and Rayo Vallecano, their form has not been enough to avoid relegation.

They come into this match on the back of consecutive losses to Real Betis and Barcelona.

Team News and Lineups

Mallorca

Mallorca is expected to make few changes from their recent draw against Osasuna. Key players Martin Valjent and Vedat Muriqi are likely to return after missing the last game due to suspensions.

Muriqi will lead the attack, supported by Sergi Darder, who scored in their last outing. The defensive setup will include Giovanni Gonzalez, Antonio Raillo, and Matija Nastasic, with Omar Mascarell and Manu Morlanes anchoring the midfield.

Almeria will miss key defender Edgar Gonzalez due to injury and will also be without Iddrisu Baba and Largie Ramazani.

Anthony Lozano will spearhead the attack, with support from Adrian Embarba, Jonathan Viera, and Leo Baptistao. The defensive lineup will likely feature Cesar Montes and Chumi.

Prediction

Considering the stakes and recent form, Mallorca is favoured to win this encounter.

Playing at home with their La Liga survival on the line, Mallorca’s determination and better form could see them secure a vital victory.

Meanwhile, Almeria, despite their recent efforts, may struggle to compete against a highly motivated Mallorca side.
