Barcelona faces Mallorca this afternoon in the hope of winning and stretching the short two-point difference they have with Real Madrid.
The return to the fields of Lionel Messi is the most awaited by the world of football and will take place today from 17 through ESPN, when Barcelona visits Mallorca for the date 28 of La Liga, which has the Catalan team as leader only two points above Real Madrid, which receives Eibar on Sunday.
After a few seasons fighting the podium, it is strange not to see Atlético de Madrid, the Cholo Simeone team, among those at the top. At the moment it is located sixth, out of the positions of Champions. The top positions in the table remain in this way: Barcelona 58, Real Madrid 56, Seville 50, Getafe 46, Real Sociedad 46, Atlético 45 and Valencia 43.
Barcelona will train with the best they have: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba; Rakitic, Busquets, De Jong; Messi, Luis Suárez and Griezmann. In addition, another one who returns to the fields is Luis Suarez, who underwent knee surgery 5 months ago and thanks to the pandemic gained recovery time.
Meanwhile, Mallorca, who needs to win to get out of relegation positions, had these eleven: Queen; Well, Valjent, Raíllo, Gámez; Dani Rodríguez, Baba, Salva Sevilla, Kubo; Budimir, Cucho.
La Pulga will try to score at least one goal to discount the difference it has with Robert Lewandowski, the Bayern Munich striker, who currently dominates the ranking of Europe’s top scorers (Messi scored 19 and Pole 30) to take the Golden Boot, award given to the top scorer in the world.
