Default LIGA | 22.03.08 | Mallorca - Deportivo | 20:00 | Pre-Match

Well, if Riazor is a 'damn' place for Real Madrid, the same can be said about our visits to Mallorca:

1962-1963 --> MALLORCA 3 -- DEPOR 1
1969-1970 --> MALLORCA 0 -- DEPOR 1
1991-1992 --> MALLORCA 4 -- DEPOR 2
1997-1998 --> MALLORCA 0 -- DEPOR 0
1998-1999 --> MALLORCA 1 -- DEPOR 2
1999-2000 --> MALLORCA 2 -- DEPOR 2
2000-2001 --> MALLORCA 2 -- DEPOR 1
2001-2002 --> MALLORCA 4 -- DEPOR 1
2002-2003 --> MALLORCA 3 -- DEPOR 0
2003-2004 --> MALLORCA 4 -- DEPOR 2
2004-2005 --> MALLORCA 2 -- DEPOR 2
2005-2006 --> MALLORCA 0 -- DEPOR 1
2006-2007 --> MALLORCA 0 -- DEPOR 0


However, we were fine there with Caparros: one win a one draw and without allowing a goal

Our biggest problem: De Guzman is suspended for this game.

We have too win after all we just beat RM. I know it's going to be harder to beat Mallorca then it was to beat RM. De Guzman is not that much of a problem since we play as a team and not just as individuals like RM. Plus we gained Guardado to our unit. We can play both Lafita and Guardado, I would like to see them both play. But Guardado looked a little slow but I'm sure he is on his way back.

Nobody now can neglect the importance of de-guzman in the squad

his absence will big spaces in the middle field of the squad Only if tomas can run like de guzman which is impossible


anyway Mallorca is a ruff team but depor can win the match after everthing they went through the last 3 weeks (win-draw-win )

Hmm, De Guzman is suspended? Dammit! He could be a perfect weapon against Arango...
I hope, that Sergio and Tomas are able to fill the hole left by Guzmans vacancy.
the main question is: who will start next week? Lafita or Guardado? And of course: is Valeron able to play more than 10 minutes without taking a risk?

I think we got plenty of backup in Antonio Thomas. This fifth card for De Guzman came in a good moment. He had played a lot of games and needed some rest now that safety is closer then ever.

I think we can overpower Mallorca but I won't complain about a draw here. And we will finally see how works our midfield without De Guzman...

Though one. If Depor also can beat Mallorca, the squad really turned things around.

I wouldnt be surprised to see a bad result here. The team can win against the strongest teams in the world, but they can also lose against teams you'd never imagine we would lose to (first example: almeria on matchday 1)

However, every game has to be played, we are in good form, we have the confidence, so im very hopeful! I hope they wont let us down and extend our unbeaten run.

I'l be crossing my fingers!

Well, this will be tough one. And no De Guzman, damn! But Tomas is also good player, and with Sergio playing better from match to match, maybe De Guzman's absence will not be such a problem.
Hope we will win, but draw would also be OK for me!

Forza Depor!

Sergio has looked really good lately, and I think he and Tomas can provide adequate cover in midfield. Not the same as having De Guzman out there, but maybe it's a bit of a good thing, as I'm sure he could use a week off. I'd love to see some stats as far as how far he's been running in matches this year.

Mallorca is all over the place recently. They've got a hot attack; Guiza and Arango each have 4 goals in the last 4 matches, but they've also given up a fair share of goals in the past few weeks.

If we are composed at the back and in midfield as we were this week, we can take them.

Vital, vital match as I see it. A win will take us, if not the final, then an important step towards salvation. I am sure we will beat Murcia, Athletic and Levante at home, and that should be enough. We can even look upwards towards the 8th place, where a Intertoto-spot should be quite safe?

On the other hand, then a loss will put us, if the ones/some of them with 32 points win, in a dangerous position again.

I'm hopeful though, and I believe in at least a draw - if we continue this level.

To be honest I'm afraid of them more than Madrid. It will be a hard encounter. I'll be happy with one point.

Same here. Maybe because I wasn't really afraid of RM but about this stupid curse, I wanted so much to keep it. Now I hope we can get a draw there what would be great score, really.
