Team News: Mallorca
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Mallorca manager Luis García to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Enzo Lombardo (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t play.
Team News: Málaga
Thanks to a completely injury-free group to choose from, Málaga boss Sergio Pellicer does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
In our opinion, Málaga will need to apply a lot of pressure to be putting a goal past this Mallorca outfit who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore fancy a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning margin for Mallorca when the full-time whistle blows.
There should be little in it.
