Mallorca vs Barcelona
Spanish La Liga
Date: 1 October 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca).
Barcelona will be looking to keep ground on Real Madrid atop La Liga standings with another victory on Saturday evening when they travel to Visit Mallorca Estadi to tackle mid-table Mallorca in Gameweek No 7.
After the goalless draw to Rayo Vallecano at Spotify Camp Nou on the opening day, Blaugrana went on to celebrate five comfortable victories in a row.
When we say comfortable, we mean five straight wins by at least three goals difference. It is certainly an impressive spell of form, especially if we know the opposition involved the likes of Real Sociedad and Sevilla on the road in the process.
The latest Barca’s victims were Elche who conceded three unanswered goals two weeks ago at Spotify Camp Nou.
Robert Lewandowski continued his marvelous spell of form by netting a brace on the occasion. The Pole is La Liga’s top scorer with 8 goals in his previous 5 appearances for Barcelona.
It will be very interesting to see whether Xavi’s men will have any problems continuing the streak here against Mallorca who have been playing hot and cold so far in the season.
Mallorca have two wins, draws, and losses each in the opening six rounds of the season. They dispatched newly-promoted Almeria 1-0 in the previous round, just one week after suffering a tough 4-1 defeat at Real Madrid.
Javier Aguirre’s men also have one win, draw, and loss apiece in three league outings on the home patch this term. This is by no means an impressive streak if we know the rivals came in the likes of Real Betis, Girona, and Almeria.
Mallorca vs Barcelona Head-to-head
- Barcelona have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup.
- They will come into this tie on the back of nine consecutive victories over Mallorca.
- Blaugrana also won 13, drew 2, and lost only 4 of the last 19 away outings against Mallorca.
Mallorca vs Barcelona Prediction
The Catalans have won each of the last five league games by at least three goals difference. We do not need anything else to take the away win by two or more goals margin at the odds of 2.05.
Obviously, Robert Lewandowski is worth backing to score against any rival in this league. The magnificent Pole is 1.72 to find the back of the net at Visit Mallorca Estadi.
