Diego Simeone's men are win-less in their last three fixtures in all competitions, losing 2-0 away to Real Sociedad, followed by two consecutive stalemates at home to Juventus in the Champions League and Celta Vigo in the league.

Diego Simeone has a few injury concerns ahead of the fixture, with Thomas Lemar (hamstring) and Sime Vrsaljko (knee) being the two players on the treatment table.
Striker Alvaro Morata is back to full fitness and made an appearance from the bench in the game against Celta Vigo, and he could be deployed from the start in Mallorca.
Atletico Madrid and RCD Mallorca have clashed a total of 28 times, with their most recent fixture against one another coming back in the 2012/2013 season, which was the hosts' last season in the top flight.
Both sides played out two draws in the league, with a goalless draw at the Vicente Calderon, and a 1-1 stalemate in the reverse fixture.
Total matches played - 28
RCD Mallorca wins - 9

Atletico Madrid wins - 10
Atletico Madrid were one of the biggest spenders during the off-season, and given that they have ambitions of winning the league title, Los Rojiblancos would be desperate to get back to winning ways in order to not lose touch with those at the summit of the table.
Real Mallorca are win-less in their last four LaLiga games, and should ostensibly not pose much of a threat to the capital club.
Furthermore, Vicente Moreno's men have scored just four goals from their five LaLiga fixtures till date, and it is highly likely that they will not breach a resolute Atletico Madrid defense.
Match prediction: Real Mallorca 0-2 Atletico Madrid
Real Mallorca win: 6.25
Atletico Madrid win: 1.63
