Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca: Predictions and Betting Tips
In their first three matches Athletic managed one win and two draws. One of the draws was against FC Barcelona at San Mamés.
Athletic have continued the trend of last season of neither scoring many goals nor conceding many. Indeed, they defend very well and it is very difficult to get the ball past them.
Athletic have not lost to Mallorca since 2011.
Mallorca are the revelation of La Liga at the moment, having won two games and drawn one, and having conceded just one goal. They are currently in the sixth position but are level on points with the first-placed team.
The transfer market has given rise to a very interesting signing for Mallorca, the young American, Matthew Hoppe. The 20 year old striker arrives from Schalke 04 for three million euros. We will be keeping an eye on this promising youngster.
In their last seven meetings against Athletic, Mallorca have only managed to score a total of two goals.
- Two wins and three draws for Athletic in their last five games
- Athletic’s last four games have ended with under 2.5 total match goals
- Three wins, one draw, and one defeat for Mallorca in their last five games
- Mallorca have only conceded two goals in their last five games
Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca Predictions
Both teams are in good form coming into this match. Mallorca have won their last two games by a single goal, as, after scoring a goal, they have opted for a very defensive game – a tactic which has paid off so far. Athletic, on the other hand, have carried on where they left off last season – struggling to score goals, but defensively very solid. Given that the game is being played at San Mamés, with Athletic’s influential fans, this could be an important factor in the match. We think Athletic Bilbao could win this match by the narrowest of margins.
