Deportivo Alaves vs Mallorca
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Deportivo Alaves took on Real Sociedad away from home earlier this week on the back of consecutive defeats at the hands of Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla, that too without getting their names on the scoresheet.
The squad are currently plying their trade in the bottom half of the table and will be banking on home advantage to help them secure all three points in this one.
Mallorca are even further down the ladder and will be coming into the matchup this weekend with a disappointing two-match losing streak under their belt. Their most recent fixture saw them concede two unanswered goals against Athletic Madrid at home while their previous outing ended in a 4-2 loss at the hands of Getafe.
Given that the away side’s last taste of success came way back in their opener, Alaves could well give Mallorca a run for their money on Sunday.
Alaves vs Mallorca Head to head (h2h)
- Mallorca have registered a win just once in their last five games, as opposed to Alaves who have three to their name.
- Their previous encounter finished as a stalemate.
- Five of their past six clashes have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
- Both teams have found the back of the net together just twice in their last ten fixtures.
Alaves vs Mallorca Prediction
The hosts have been at the losing end just once at home in the new season, and have garnered four points from a possible nine as well. On the other hand, Mallorca have been recording back to back defeats in their trips on the road and have conceded six goals in the process while retaliating just twice.
To make matters worse for the Mallorca faithful, the away side have not been faring well in their previous visits to this venue and have been admitting defeat in their last three trips here in a running too. Given the dismal away record that they are sporting at the moment, the three points are more than likely to swing in favor of Alaves at the last blast of the whistle.
In addition, visitors have not found the back of the net in three of their previous four head to head meetings here. Taking into account that they have not opened the scoring in any of their recent outings either, by all means, count on Deportivo Alaves to be the ones to break the deadlock.
