Mallorca coach Gregorio Manzano is hoping his team can turn things around against an in-form Getafe side.
“These situations are normal when things don’t go well, but we have to remain calm and think with our heads,” Manzano said.
“We can’t panic – we need to be focused. The club has been in worse situations than this and always pulled through. Our aim is still to secure a win in Getafe and to get out of the position we are in. A good result is the best cure for our current illness.”
Getafe coach Victor Munoz has warned his players that the match will not be as easy as some think.
“This is the toughest game we have had to face this month,” Munoz said.
“The team should be able to feel confident but we respect Mallorca and recognise they have some very good players. They have lost their last couple of games and are in a difficult situation, but there is no way that we can afford to relax.
“The three points and another home win would be a key moment for us and help us to believe in ourselves a little bit more.”
Mallorca defender David Navarro is in doubt but midfielder Juan Miguel Callejon has returned from injury and should start.
