Real Mallorca flew to Spaghetti Western country in Andalusia today where they’ll play fellow strugglers Almeria at their Los Juegos Mediterraneos tomorrow at 5pm. This is a massive game as Almeria are three points behind us and our stats are pretty equal. We’ve scored 26 to their 27 and conceded 34 to Almeria’s 36. They were relegated from La Liga last season and, like Real Mallorca found, life in La Segunda is not as easy as initially thought and is totally unpredictable. According to this weekend’s sports pages, it looks like Almeria’s coach Nestor Garosito will pick a side with five defenders as they face a Mallorca who will have all their attackers fit. Not that that will put any fear into a decent defence as we’ve really not scored enough goals this campaign. In the words of the recently-departed legend Johan Cruyff, “you can’t score if you don’t shoot”. Two of our most influential players, Lago Junior and Brandon Thomas, have suffered setbacks in form recently and if Mallorca want to get back up the table these two must hit the ground running asap.
Season defining game on Sunday?
