Barcelona 2 - 1 Athletic BilbaoCurrent Position:
RCD Mallorca are coming off an away loss to Real Sociedad so they're most likely wanting to impress their home crowd tonight. They're sitting in 11th place at the moment with 31 points (they have the same amount of points as Getafe but Getafe are ahead on goal difference) so a win tonight could put them up in 9th place. The last time they played Barcelona, they gave Barça their only draw at home of the season so far. Their top goalscorers this season are Pierre Webo, Gonzalo Castro and Pereira with five a piece. For this match they will be missing forward Víctor Casadesús who is out with a right muscle tear for eight to ten weeks.
Barcelona are coming off a 2-1 win against Athletic Bilbao, still holding onto first place with 65 points. There's plenty of injuries going around in the Barcelona camp with Puyol, Jeffren, Victor Valdes and Xavi sitting on the sidelines today. Dani Alves is out of this match since he picked up his fifth yellow in the match against Bilbao. After the last result with Mallorca, Barcelona are out to win and they'll be trying to do it without their midfield maestro.Head To Head This Season:
