VIL Vs MLC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Relegation zone slumped Mallorca edging ever closer towards their demise this season
Routed 4-0 by Barcelona at the weekend, Mallorca couldn’t have restarted their bid to survive relegation this season in a more abject manner. The defeat was a shambolic showing from the side, one which abysmally exposed the side’s predicaments this season ahead of a relegation fight which is looking set to be a long and tedious affair.
The defeat left them the one point behind Celta Vigo in 18th place, a position the side will be looking to leave in its dust at the earliest plausible. And as they get ready to partake in their second clash in as many days, the side will need to dwell deep into its repertoire of resource in a bid to wave off a stern Villarreal test.
Where Mallorca have been embroiled in an unsavoury mess all across the season, Villarreal on the other hand managed to return to La Liga 2019-29 in flamboyant manner. On a three match losing spree prior to the hiatus, the side returned with a well worked 1-0 win over Celta Vigo, a result which took them into 9th spot in the points tally.
Mallorca’s defence has refrained them from making any inroads this season and infront of Villarreal, this peril will play a major role in their demise. This will be a tie where Villarreal are able to rake up a win with relative ease and string together their second win on the spin.

VIL Vs MLC Dream11 Picks
When you are hailed for your performance despite conceding 4 goals, you know you did something right on the day. Manolo Reina was the only reason Villarreal didn’t end up shipping in more goals in their foregone affair with the shot stopper pulling off a gusty and guile filled performance.
Although Villarreal have been in abject form this season defensively, the side’s cleansheet the last time around emoted to their calibre when functioning in unison. And up infront of a Mallorca side that has scored on a measly 28 occasions in 28 encounters, Villarreal will be fanciful of their chances of a cleansheet today.
It’s a discourse which sees us repose faith in a trio from the side, one which comprises of the tenacious Pau Torres, Raul Albiol and Albert Moreno.
Santi Cazrola infront of the worst defensive unit in the league doesn’t augur well for Villarreal today. This hs been a truly wondrous season for Cazorla, one where he has silenced his naysayers with a gargantuan 8 goals and 6 assists, a figure set to be elevated when he comes across s side that has gone onto leak 48 goals.
He’s going to find company in Manuel Trigueros who has the four assists in his kitty along with Samuel Chukwueze while the visiting team on the other hand will find representation in a duo. With Villarreal themselves getting cold feet while defending, this could be the ideal tie for Mallorca to break free of the quagmire they find themselves in.
Lago Junior makes for an enticing pick in this narrative with the player having scored on 4 occasions with Salva Sevilla who has the three assists coming in to partner him up.
Villarreal’s leading scorer with the 11 goals and 3 assists this season, Gerard Moreno has cajoled his way a basketful of goals owing to his ability to break apart defences with ease. We also have Mallorca’s top scorer, Ante Budimir make a foray into our framework owing to the 9 goals and 2 assists he’s provided for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 8 goals will see us make Cazorla our side’s captain while Moreno is the vice-captain.
