Mallorca arrives demotivated to this match, after a 1-0 defeat as a visitor, in the visit to Espanyol. The local club usually plays in a 4-3-3, favoring a faster style of play, with constant transitions. In this tactical drawing, the three men responsible for launching the panic in the opponent’s defense are Dani Rodríguez, Budimir and Lago. In any case, Mallorca manages to practice a soccer ball possession, progressing on the court through short passes. The local coach must have all the players available for this match.
The visiting team is currently in 14th position, with 27 points won, after 7 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses. In the penultimate match, he drew away against Sevilla by (1‑1).

The Alavés enters this motivated performance, after a 2-1 victory at home, against Eibar: Lucas Pérez and Burke scored the goals of the win. The greatest strength of visitors is their ability to attack through rapid transitions. It should be noted that from the defensive point of view, the difficulties increase when the opposing team attacks on the flanks. The Spanish Lucas Pérez is the player responsible for creating problems for the rival defense and his greatest quality is the ability to take advantage of spaces. Apparently, the visiting coach will not be able to count on Pina, delivered to the medical department.
