Granada vs Mallorca Match Preview
Both these teams had gained promotion to the top division just this last summer. However, either have had different experiences in the La Liga this campaign.
Granada made the most of their new set of surroundings, as they raced to a great start, and even dealt a defeat to the reigning champions, Barcelona.
However, Mallorca went through expected routes for a newly-promoted team, and suffered heavy losses. Especially their performances on the road were hugely disappointing.
Granada vs Mallorca Prediction
Granada were on the road against the experienced Eibar, and sure enough lost the game, 3-0. Elsewhere, Mallorca had played hosts to Sevilla, and against the top-tier side, the former lost at home, 0-2.
This Sunday, in regards to result, Granada come out on top easily. First and foremost, they had finished a full ten points above Mallorca the last season in the Segunda Division. In addition, they have the home advantage this Sunday, and have performed reasonably well in front of their own fans this season.
In fact, Granada were unbeaten in 20 of their last 23 home fixtures, and even had a four-match winning streak at this venue. This streak had begun with a win to nil over Barcelona, and later, the team even held Diego Simeone’s men to a draw.
On the other hand, Mallorca are hanging above the relegation line by a thread, and have conceded the second-most number of goals in the competition. They were also winless in eight of their last ten overall games, and in 15 of their previous 19.
On the road, the team have registered a total of just two wins from their prior sixteen attempts. One of these wins had come in the Copa del Rey, against a team from the lower tier of the Spanish Flight, and the other victory had come in a friendly.
Moreover, Mallorca are deemed as the worst team on the road in the league. They are in fact completely winless away from home in this edition of the La Liga. To drive the point further deep – Mallorca lost all of their league fixtures on the road, disregarding a single draw.
Additionally, Mallorca have won against this opponent just once this decade, and it had happened six years back. Also, Granada have failed to score against this team just once in the past ten years, and most importantly, Granada have always found the back of the net against Mallorca, at this venue.
Considering all these observations together, it’s easily inferenced that Granada hold a very high probability of winning this Sunday at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.
