Barcelona vs Mallorca
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 7 December 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona continued their stay at the top with a win over Atleti the last match-day. They will be eager to keep a hold of their top-dog status in the league, and with this upcoming fixture scheduled at the Camp Nou, Lionel Messi and co do have a great opportunity to post the three points on offer.
Consider the stature and current struggles of the incoming Mallorca as well, and Barca are easily the favorites to post a huge win.

Barcelona vs Mallorca Prediction
Barca had to wait till the very last to find the winner against arch-rivals Atleti, at the Wanda Metropolitano the last match-day. The game had a sole goal in the ninety minutes, and sure enough, it was scored by Barca’s talisman Lionel Messi.
Meanwhile, Mallorca were at home and still could not deliver even a single point against Betis. The two early goals in the first half had effectively taken out the hosts out of the game, and the match ended 1-2 in favor of Real Betis.
This Sunday, consider that the best team in the competition is taking on a newly-promoted Mallorca, who are also desperately trying to avoid the relegation zone. On top of that, Barcelona are at the Camp Nou, where arguably they are at their best. The team is unbeaten in their last eleven appearances here and won ten of these as well.
On the other hand, Mallorca were winless in 12 of their former 15 overall fixtures and lost an embarrassing ten of these. On the road, they lost the last seven matches on the trot and had a single win from their prior thirteen attempts. The team also failed to score in nine of their previous twelve road trips, and most importantly, the last they won at this venue was back in 2008.
Going on, consider that this is the first match after Messi has won the all-time record six Ballon d’Ors, and will be extra keen to make a spectacle out of it.
Taking into account all these factors, expect a crushing win from the side of Barcelona this Sunday over these minnows.
