A sold-out Iberostar Stadium will play host to Atlético when they face off against relegation-threatened local side Mallorca on Saturday evening in la Liga’s final match day. The clash, which will mark the end the Quique Sanchez Flores era at Atleti, will have implications for both clubs, but los Mallorquinos should feel the greater amount of pressure as they seek to avoid the drop.
Atlético welcome Mallorca to the Vicente Calderón in what is to be los Rojiblancos’ last Monday game of the season and the final game of the first half of the 2010-11 campaign. The big news coming into the encounter is the injury of Sergio Agüero, who will be sidelined for two weeks with a hamstring injury.
Week defending from set pieces cost Atlético the win today as we competed for the Trofeo Ciudad de Palma. Real Mallorca beat us 3-2. Atlético started off strongly, but Mallorca took the lead through two corners. Atlético did manage to score twice after Pierre Webo had already increased Mallorca’s lead, but our comeback came too late.
On Saturday Atlético and Real Mallorca face off in the 35th edition of the Trofeo Ciudad de Palma. Diego Godín is ready to make his debut, but he won’t be able to do so alongside Álvaro Domínguez, as the centre back is injured. Our star striker Diego Forlán returned to training this week but will miss the match through injury as well. There were four surprises in Quique’s match selection as several players were left out.
