With a record of eight wins, 19 losses and nine draws after 36 games, Mallorca enter into this match looking at the real threat of being relegated. The team has had 14 losses in the latest nineteen matches, bagging a total of 32 goals so far while conceding 62. This has mainly been thanks, in many ways, to the efforts from Vedat Muriqi, who has four goals, and Salva Sevilla who has four. In their last game they dropped points against Sevilla 0-0.
Rayo Vallecano have a tally of 42 points so far this season and will continue to give it their all. They drew with Getafe 0-0 last Sunday. The squad has had 10 losses in the most recent nineteen matches and to date, they’ve recorded 11 wins, 15 losses and nine draws. When they have done well, it’s generally been thanks to the capabilities of Sergi Guardiola and Falcao. Can the pair guide los Franjirrojos to victory here?
The latest squad news is that Mallorca will be missing Inigo Ruiz de Galarreta, Dominik Greif, Aleksandar Sedlar and Amath Ndiaye. Rayo Vallecano will be without Martin Merquelanz.
