    Atletico have defended fairly well against the attacks of Mallorca, but as of yet they have not had any clear cut opportunities to contend with.

    Atletico have been architects of their own downfall at points this season by not holding on to leads. They must capitalise on the amount of men Mallorca are committing forward.
  • 57'
    Webo is currently playing on the shoulder of the Atletico defence. As of yet he has not been able to cause any problems , but Atletico must be weary not to let their offside trap be broken as Mallorca are pouring men forward.
  • 55'
    Atletico are enjoying their first period of sustained possession in the second half. Intelligent play from their midfield , trying to slow down the tempo of the game , and so the momentum of Mallorca.

    Mallorca have been the better team this half , and indeed for most of the first half . A goal at this point will definetly change the game.

    Atletico are looking to see the end of the half out with their two nil lead. They are not committing much men forward and are letting Mallorca try to find a goal before the interval.
  • 41'
    Atletico will be fairly happy with their first half display. This will certainly ease the pressure on Flores for his half time team talk.
  • 39'
    Mallorca are showing good character, they do not look beaten by any means. If they can snatch a goal before half time , the dynamic of the game will be very different.
