Game info  Mallorca x Atlético de Madrid 


Going through their best moment of the season, Mallorca will meet Atlético de Madrid this Wednesday, November 9, who have won four matches without a win. The match, which will take place at the Visit Mallorca stadium in Palma de Mallorca, is part of the schedule for the fourteenth round of the 2022/2023 version of the Spanish Championship. It is the last matchday of LaLiga before the obligatory stop for the holding of the Qatar World Cup. The match starts at 20:30 UTC.


How does the Spanish Championship 2022/2023 work?


LaLiga has 20 clubs. They play 38 rounds (home and away games) for the season. In the end, the one with the most points wins the title. The Spanish Championship grants six places in international competitions. The top four finishers are entitled to a place in the Champions League group stage. The fifth place goes to the Europa League, also directly to the group stadium. Whoever gets sixth place will be able to play in the European Conference League but will have to go through the qualifiers. The last three places will be sent to the Second Division.



When talking about the best moment of the season in the case of Mallorca, it is necessary to consider that this is a team whose objective is purely and simply to avoid relegation. So scoring three straight rounds is his best streak in 2022/2023. There were two wins and a draw in the period.


On Sunday, November 6, the team took advantage of the instability experienced by Villarreal, who lost their coach. Under the orders of Quique Sétien, the Yellow Submarine encountered many difficulties. Against Mallorca, he had the ball 71% of the time. However, he only got two shots during the duel. Showing much more objectivity, the team from Palma de Mallorca scored 2-0. They hit the net with Muriqi, in the 32nd minute of the opening stage, after counting on a pass from Gonzalez and Ndiaye in the 30th minute of the final stage. This time, the waiter was Miriqi.


This way, it reached 16 points (four wins, four draws, and five defeats). Jumped to twelfth position on the leaderboard when considering the tie-breaking criteria. They started the match at number 14 with a five-point lead compared to Celta de Vigo, eighteenth-placed and first team in the relegation zone. As a principal, however, the performance is much lower. It is the seventeenth place in the ranking of the LaLiga homeowners. Of the 18 points he played as column one, he won five (one win, two draws, and three defeats). He scored four goals and conceded six.


Atlético de Madrid

There has been no lack of vexations in the 2022/2023 season for Atlético de Madrid. On Sunday, November 6, in his first game after losing 2-1 to Porto, a result that left him in the last position of his group in the Champions League and even prevented him from being reassigned to the Europa League, he put yet another result that would have led to the dismissal of a coach at any other club.


Diego Simeone, however, remains untouchable. At the Civitas Metropolitano stadium, he had the chance to face a numerically disadvantaged Espanyol for most of the confrontation. The Catalan club had Cabrera sent off in the 28th minute of the opening period. In that condition, he had the defense leaked in the 17th minute of the finals by Dader. It was only to avoid defeat thanks to João Félix's goal in the 33rd minute.


The Portuguese were not even selected as a starter. He was only triggered in the 21st minute in place of Carrasco. It was Atletico Madrid's fourth consecutive game without a win (two defeats and two draws). With 24 points (seven wins, three draws, and three losses), he started the match of the fourteenth round in the third position on the LaLiga leaderboard. Ten points below Barcelona, the leader. As a visitor, he is the second-best in the tournament. Of the 21 points he played as column two, he won 16 (five wins, one draw, and one defeat). He scored 12 goals and conceded five.
