Team News

Villarreal
Mallorca
  • Kiko Femenia could come in for Adria Altimira, who suffered a knock against Las Palmas.
  • Alexander Sorloth returns from his injury but Marcelino could be reluctant to thrust him in to action straight away - the Norwegian could feature from the bench.
  • Vedat Muriqi, whilst back on grass has still not featured for Mallorca since his October injury. He could be named on the bench against Villarreal.
  • Cyle Larin should start up top having scored last week against Celta and Tenerife. Javier Aguirre seems to prefer him over Abdon Prats at the moment.

Prediction

  • Mallorca's summer signing up front, Cyle Larin, is finally starting to find form in the side, scoring twice in 2024 following a goalless first-half of the season for the club. He has the opportunity to increase his worth against a Villarreal side who are in defensive limbo. The yellow submarine haven't kept a clean sheet in seven matches.
  • Villarreal have another striking weapon at their disposal in the form of Alexander Sorloth, who is returning from a lengthy injury. He came off the bench in the defeat to Las Palmas and will more than likely feature again.
  • Villarreal defeated Mallorca and kept a clean sheet in the reverse fixture, but could face a much tougher challenge at home in this one.
