Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish LaLiga match on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick off 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET at the Estadio San Mamés.
The Basque outfit are going after a European spot, but they have quite some distance to cover in order to secure that objective, and by no means could they afford to drop points hereon.
Their unbeaten run after the lockdown had come to an end the last match-day, and it’s important that they get back to winning ways very soon. The fact that they are taking on a relegation-battler has raised hopes for fans this weekend.
Vicente Moreno’s men are currently placed 18th in the table, and are going through a struggling stretch at the moment. Moreover, they have suffered on the road a lot this season, and have an embarrassing h2h record against this opponent over the years. Likely, expect a Bilbao win this Saturday.
Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Basque outfit won five of the past six overall fixtures.
- Moreno’s men have scored a total of one goal from the previous six games.
- It’s been nine years since the Basque outfit have lost against this opponent.
- At this venue, the hosts are on a four-fixture winning run.
- Since 2002, only once have the visitors won at this stadium.
Athletic Bilbao vs Mallorca: Prediction
The Basque outfit lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day against Barcelona. The team did fight till the very end, only for Ivan Rakitic to slot in the winner in the 73rd minute.
In the meantime, Moreno’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home the past game week. After scoring an early goal, the hosts did lead for the majority of the fixture. However, with three minutes remaining on the clock, Leganes fired in the equalizer, robbing Moreno’s men of two very important points.
By the looks of things, the Basque outfit easily have the upper hand. They have been one of most competitive teams in the La Liga since its inception, whereas Moreno’s men were not even present in the top flight in 2018-19.
Moreno’s men are also placed in the relegation zone at the moment, and have not at all performed satisfactorily this campaign.
Moreover, the Basque outfit had won five of the former six h2h clashes, and they also are on a four-game winning run at this stadium in such match-ups.
In addition, it’s been nine years since Moreno’s men have recorded a win against this rival, and in the last 18 years, they have registered just two h2h victories at this ground.
Taking into account these observations, it’s estimated that Athletic Bilbao are about to post a win this Saturday.
