After a week when Tyson Fury allegedly made so much money from his fight with Deontay Wilder that he’s upgraded his home – installing a third Calor gas bottle outside his back door! – Real Mallorca (sixth) play “millionaires” Malaga (fifth – two points ahead of us) in the Son Moix, kick off 6 pm. I use the word “millionaires” because Malaga were relegated from La Liga last season, their first demotion in top flight Spanish football for 10 years. Going down meant they were handed a substantial sum from parachute payments and their pre-season budget was 25 million euros to our six million. Real Mallorca should be almost at full strength for this “six-pointer,” the only absentee Aridai Cabrera. However his place could be taken by the star turn in last week’s 0-2 win in Reus, Pablo Valcarce. Skipper Xisco Campos is suspended so either Franco Russo or the Slovakian international Martin Valjent could deputise.
