Barcelona will look to recover from their shock midweek Champions League defeat to Celtic when they travel to Mallorca on Sunday. On paper, Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova couldnt have wished for much better opponents for his team to bounce back against than a Mallorca side that have lost their last matches in La Liga.nCesc Fabregas is back in action, & is likely to start against a side who have struggled for form this season. Pedro is defintely out after injuring himself in the midweek defeat of Granada, while Gerard Pique is still recovering from a hamstring injury & is unlikely to be risked. Alexis Sanchez remains sidelined with a longer-term hamstring issue, & Ibrahim Afellay is also out long-term with a cruciate injury. Mallorca will even be hampered for the visit of Barcelona by a mounting injury list that now includes former Barca man Giovani Dos Santos after the Mexican picked up a thigh injury in his side latest defeat, a 1-0 loss to Deportivo La Coruna.
Mallorca stay winless in their last outings & have recently suffered a alter of coach when Michael Laudrup was replaced in the dugout by former Athletic Bilbao boss Joaquin Caparros. Despite everything seemingly indicating a victory for the Catalans, Vilanova is taking nothing for granted & pointed toward Mallorca coach Joaquin Caparros as a reason for concern. Barcelona have cemented their lead atop La Liga with a convincing win over now lowly Mallorca in the Balearic Islands. The Catalans looked to have put the game away before halftime, with a rare error from Dudu Aouate giving the visitors a three-goal lead. But Los Bermellones soon found themselves objective behind after scoring a pair in fast succession after the break. In the finish, poor first-half tactics undid the hosts, and La Blaugrana returned home with a full points. While Gerard Pique ought to return to the beginning lineup after appearing off the bench in Glasgow, it is still early for Carlos Puyols comeback, despite the defender returning to training.Tito Vilanova has now led his team to the greatest start in league history with 31 of a feasible 33 points won in their first 11 matches. Barcelona injury issues, while still notable, still do not match up to those of Mallorca. As well as Dos Santos, the home side will even be missing Joao Victor, Nunes, Antonio Lopez and Javi Marquez. Right-back Ximo may return, however. Every win from here on further builds their own record. There is individual in the team who is setting his own records.
