Saturday's La Liga predictions including Mallorca vs. Real Madrid

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's La Liga fixtures, including Mallorca vs. Real Madrid.

Atletico vs. Girona (Saturday, 1.00pm)

Fresh from claiming an advantage in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, Atletico Madrid will resume La Liga duties on Saturday afternoon with an intruiging clash against Girona.

Atletico are currently fourth in the La Liga table, seven points behind third-placed Girona, with both sides battling to secure positions in next season's Champions League.

We say: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Girona

This is a really difficult match to call, as Girona will fancy their chances of taking advantage of Atletico's energy-zapping contest against Dortmund. Girona's recent away form cannot be ignored, though, and we are backing Simeone's side to edge what should be a very interesting fixture in the Spanish capital.

Rayo Vallecano vs. Getafe (Saturday, 3.15pm)

Relegation-threatened Rayo Vallecano will be bidding to boost their La Liga survival hopes when they welcome Getafe to Campo de Futbol de Vallecas on Saturday afternoon.

The home side are currently 16th in the La Liga table, only five points outside of the relegation zone, while Getafe occupy 11th, boasting 38 points from their 30 matches this term.

We say: Rayo Vallecano 1-1 Getafe

Three of the last four La Liga meetings between these two teams have finished level, including a 0-0 draw when they last locked horns at the home of Rayo. Getafe only have one away win this term, while Rayo have just two victories at home, so we have had to settle on a share of the spoils here.

Mallorca vs. Real Madrid (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Real Madrid will be aiming to open up an 11-point lead at the top of the La Liga table, at least temporarily, when they resume domestic action away to Mallorca on Saturday evening.

Los Blancos will enter the contest off the back of a 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, while Mallorca suffered disappointment in the Copa del Rey final last weekend, losing to Athletic Bilbao on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

We say: Mallorca 1-2 Real Madrid

Real Madrid will not be at full-strength on Saturday, which will certainly boost Mallorca's chances of picking up a positive result. We came incredibly close to backing a draw here, especially as Mallorca have not lost many at home this term, but Real Madrid's quality should allow them to navigate their way to a vital three points.

Cadiz vs. Barcelona (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Barcelona will be looking to record their sixth straight victory in all competitions when they resume their La Liga campaign away to a relegation-threatened Cadiz outfit on Saturday night.

Xavi's side will enter the match off the back of a 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, while Cadiz beat Granada 1-0 in La Liga last time out.

We say: Cadiz 0-1 Barcelona

Cadiz are more than capable of making this an uncomfortable match for Barcelona, with the relegation-threatened side winning their last two league games at home. The visitors will not be at full strength, but they are on a roll at the moment, and we are backing Xavi's side to edge a close game on Saturday night to continue their impressive winning run.
