Mallorca vs Espanyol: Prediction and Betting Tips
Mallorca having a great start to their La Liga return
After finishing second in the Segunda Division last season, Mallorca got promoted to Spain’s top flight. The club reached its peak in 1999 and 2001 when they finished third in la Liga. Also, they won the Copa Del Rey in 2003 after the Spanish Super Cup in 1998. Relegation chased Mallorca in the 2019-20 season but won promotion after one year in the Segunda Division.
Certainly collecting four points from a possible six to start their new campaign is a promising start. In addition, their win last week at Alaves extended their unbeaten run in competitive games to eight. The Pirates found their success last season with their defensive performance. Coach Plaza’s team had the best joint defensive record conceding 28 goals in 42 games.
Mallorca key points
- Mallorca won five of their last ten matches
- The Pirates haven’t lost in their last four home games
- Both teams scored in three of Mallorca’s last four home fixtures
Espanyol searching for their first win against fellow promotion team
Four-time Copa Del Rey winners, Espanyol finished last in La Liga in the 2019-20 season. Together with their opponents, they got relegated to the Segunda Division. However, the club’s determination to gain automatic promotion allowed them to be back in the top flight. Espanyol are the second most popular team from Barcelona but are under the shadow of their city rivals for so long.
Despite being undefeated so far this season, their two goalless draws didn’t entertain their fans. In fact, the Periqiuitos scored just one goal in their last four competitive games. Espanyol took four points from Mallorca last season. But they should be cautious given that in each of the last two LL campaigns, the previous season’s LL2 runners-up have done the double over their fellow promoted champions!
Espanyol key points
- Espanyol won one of their last four away games
- The White and Blue scored in two of their last five games
- Coach Moreno’s team conceded 0.6 goals per game in their last ten matches
Mallorca vs Espanyol Prediction
Very little is separating both teams concerning the odds with the bookies for a win in this match. Even though Mallorca had a win already this season unlike their opponents, still we can’t rule out Espanyol.Nevertheless, this match is wide open on all possibilities.
Hence we have to be very careful in picking up a winning bet for this one. The bookies are predicting a 70% chance for a low-scoring game of under 2.5 goals.There is a big possibility for this considering Espanyol’s two goalless draws and Mallorca’s one goal per game average.
Consequently, the under 2.5 goals bet looks very probable and with odds of 1.53 at Vbet, we will back that. Also, the combination of the outcome of the match and total goals has some valuable odds that we must not neglect.
