Yes, last year was a disgrace, we couldn't hold on to a 1-0-lead despite being two players more on the pitch, however, Mallorca will be playing with eleven men on the pitch tonight, so more of a chance now, always the opposite logic when it comes to Atlético.
A lot of stuff are happening at the moment; Tiago said goodbye to the Portuguese NT while we've signed Adrián López from Deportivo out of nowhere, just what we needed, another mediocre striker who scores in two games and then doesn't in the upcoming ten. Oh well..moving on, Mallorca is the main attraction for tonight and it'll be tough, however, they haven't won at Vicente Calderón since 2005 I believe, can't quite remember, it's been a while anyways.
Agüero's obviously injured and won't play, typically our luck.
Valera - Ujfalui - Godín - Antonio López
Assunçao - Tiago - Elías
Mérida - Forlán - Reyes
So, Elías is making his debut and Quique decides to rest Filipe as well as Juanfran for the game against Madrid later this week, meanwhile, Antonio and Valerinha get starts while Tiago is back in the starting line-up after a couple of games absence. Mérida will either play on the wing in a 4-3-3 or in a 4-4-2, we'll see, interesting line-up nontheless.
Mallorca will play; Aouate; Kevin, Rubén, Nunes, Cendrós; De Guzmán, Joao Víctor, Pereira, Nsue; Víctor and Webó.
