Real Betis vs Mallorca
Spain La Liga
Date: Friday, 21 February 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin, Sevilla
This week’s action in Spanish La Liga is getting opened on Friday night in Sevilla where Real Betis host Mallorca.
Despite having a couple of great performances, hosts have failed to secure one single victory in the last four games, losing to Getafe & Barcelona, while winning a point off clashes against Leganes and Eibar.
They are having some issues with injured players at the moment, but that still doesn’t change the fact Betis are big favourites to beat visitors from Mallorca. Home win is currently priced at 1.50.
Real Betis vs Mallorca: Head-to-head
These two rivals have met 31 times in the past and the score is tied when it comes to victories 13-13.
The most recent duel played at Palma de Mallorca in late November 2019 was won by Real Betis 2-1 thanks to the goals of Fekir and Joaquin.
Real Betis vs Mallorca: Prediction
Mallorca were promoted to the top flight last season, and they had only one goal for this campaign – avoiding relegation. So far they are not doing so great in comparison to other promoted teams, sitting in the 18th position in the red zone with 21 points from 24 games.
This squad was going through huge crisis since late-January, losing four games in a row to Sociedad, Zaragoza, Espanyol and Valladolid. Bad run finally got interrupted last weekend with a 1-0 home win against Alaves.
Betis are doing much better in terms of standings, being six positions and eight points ahead. The main reason why they are not in the race for Europa League is poor record on the road, featuring only one win in 12 appearances.
Real Betis have played really great against Barcelona recently, but still lost that match. The same goes for last weekend’s draw against Leganes. We are tipping this squad to return to winning ways this Friday.
As for the goals market, Mallorca have scored only seven goals in 11 games on the road so far. Under 2.5 FT seems like a good option.
