The La Liga has resumed on the 11th of June, 2020 with two matches used for the re-opening of the race to win the 2019/2020 league.
Barcelona is among the matches to be played on Saturday with Real and Athletico Madrid coming up next on Sunday.
Barcelona maintained the number one position on the league table by toping Real Madrid with 2 points despite Real Madrid beating Barcelona on a 2-0 win in the last El Classico a week before Real Madrid lost a game to lose points to Barca which was now followed by the lockdown.
With the extended period of training under new manager Quique Setién, they hope to come back stronger than before as they look forward to thrashing Mallorca and maintaining their stand on top of the race.
Barcelona have lost five matches on the road this season at the opponent house (Away match), more than they have in a single season since 2007/2008.
Meanwhile, Mallorca is down below the table hoping to be revived so they could survive relegation. They are 18th on the league table and have conceded a huge 44 goals this season, 2019/20 despite the hard work that has been put into the team by the manager, Vicente Moreno.
There is no home adavantage in this match so its a loss as they would play on a neutral ground with no fans to cheer them up.
Mallorca vs Barcelona possible line-ups:
- Mallorca possible line-up: M.Reina, A. Pozo, F. Gamez, A Railo, M. Vajient, S. Seviila, I. Baba, D. Rodriguez, T. Kubo, A. Budimir, J. Hernandez
- Barcelona Possible line-up: M. ter stegen, G.Pique, J. Alba, S. Roberto, S. Umtiti/R. Araujo, I. Rakitic, S. Busquets, F. de Jong, L. Suarez, L. Messi, A. Griezmann
Barcelona will not be playing Clement Lenglet because he is currently suspended after picking up a yellow card against Real Sociedad.
Given the injury to Samuel Umtiti this means he will likely be replaced by rookie Ronald Araujo.
Final score prediction: Mallorca 1-3 Barcelona
