Alaves vs Mallorca: Predictions and Betting Tips
Alaves opened this season with a 1-4 defeat at home, though this team came against none other than Real Madrid.
Despite the heavy defeat, there were some positive signs from Alaves in taking possession of the ball, and managing the game, things that were absent last season. However, some of the goals conceded were due to lapses in concentration from their defence.
Alaves are still awaiting to hear what the future holds for their best player, Joselu, to be resolved. Joselu has been linked with a move to Sevilla, but, for the time being, he remains an integral part of the team.
On their return to LaLiga, Mallorca opened the season with a 1-1 draw against Real Betis. The Balearic side were able to hold out against Betis, and a draw is a good point for them.
Takefusa Kubo, who played for Mallorca in the 2019-2020 season, returns to the Balearic side, again on loan from Real Madrid. He brought much to the team in his previous spell at Mallorca, so a lot is expected of him this season.
- Three wins and two defeats for Alaves in their last five games
- Alaves have conceded seven goals in their last five games
- Three wins, one draw, and one defeat for Mallorca in their last five games
- Mallorca have only conceded three goals in their last five games
Alaves vs Mallorca Predictions
We think this could be a very even match, as despite Alaves’ big defeat, the Basque team looked strong in some parts of the match, and, against a lower-level opponent, the result might have been different. Mallorca, in their return to LaLiga, also looked good, and they have the opportunity to prove it again, against an opponent of a similar level in Alaves. We see the two teams as very evenly matched, so we think a draw could be possible in this game.
