Mallorca will be battling to escape from the relegation zone this Wednesday when they travel to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in a match against top four finish contenders Sevilla FC in the 36th game week of the Spanish La Liga. Kickoffs at 21:30 EAT.
Sevilla FC is seven points ahead of their bitter city rivals Real Betis in fifth place, meaning a win here would lock their spot in the UEFA Champions League next season with just three games left to play.

In that game, Sevilla had 46% possession, six shots with two of them on target and a goal scored by Jules Koundé (95′). Villarreal CF got 14 shots with six of them on target and a goal by Giovani Lo Celso (86′).
One the other end, Mallorca is on the weakest performance of the entire season, sitting 18th with 32 points and they have lost three of the last four league matches. Mallorca is on cold streak on travels as well since they will come off the back of nine consecutive defeats on the road in all competitions.
Mallorca and their fans will hope to get a better results coming off 2-6 La Liga trashing at the hands of Granada in their last match. In that game, Mallorca managed 59% possession, 18 shots with eight of them on target and goals scored by Salva Sevilla (28′) and Antonio Raíllo (58′). Granada got 14 shots with seven of them on target and goals by Luis Suárez (6′), Escudero (46′), Antonio Puertas (55′), Jorge Molina (69′, 90′) and Myrto Uzuni (78′).
