Mallorca vs Deportivo Alaves Match Preview
Mallorca slumped to a third successive defeat last week after rock bottom side Espanyol edged past them on the road with a 1-0 scoreline. The hosts have now failed to find the back of the net in each of their past three fixtures, and have scored just one goal from their previous six.
With just eighteen points to their name, the home team are currently dwelling in the relegation zone along with Leganes and Espanyol.
On the other hand, Deportivo Alaves have been faring a lot better in their respective campaign. In fact, the visitors have stumbled just once in their previous five games on the trot. Their most recent clash, in particular, saw the guests takedown Eibar at home with a 2-1 scorecard.
Nevertheless, Mallorca will be hoping to salvage at least a point this week, as a defeat could potentially send them crashing to the bottom of the cluster.
Mallorca vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction
To be frank, Mallorca have been a confident bunch on home soil this term. All five victories that they have secured so far, have come from their clashes here. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have picked up all three points in half of their previous eight clashes at home, one of which, was against the mighty Los Blancos themselves.
In sharp contrast, Deportivo Alaves have just two wins to boast of from their past seven outings in the Laliga. To make matters worse, the visiting contingent have not come away with the bragging rights in any of their previous trips here.
Hence, given their poor form on the road, Mallorca are the favorites to emerge victoriously in this one. Be that as it may, the hosts have shared the spoils at home on two occasions already this season. Taking into account that their last meeting with this foe here had also ended as a tie, a double chance is sizing up the safest punt.
Furthermore, Mallorca have not conceded more than two goals in any of their clashes here this term. Impressively, they have also kept a clean sheet thrice in the process.
Meanwhile, Deportivo Alaves’s frontline have not lived up to expectations on the road. Disappointingly, the visitors have found the back of the net just ten times away from home.
Considering that their last two h2h meetings here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the chart, expect no more than a goal or two at the most come Saturday.
