Mallorca vs Deportivo La Coruna
Spain – LaLiga2 Playoff
Date: Sunday, 23 June 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Iberostar (Palma de Mallorca).
Mallorca will have a mountain to climb this Sunday after the first leg ended in their defeat. On the road, the team was perplexed by Deportivo’s pressure. Also, it did not help at all that Marc Pedraza was sent off even before half time.
The hosts broke the deadlock in the 37th minute, which Mallorca tried to equalize with all their might, knowing the pressure they would be under in the return leg if they were to trail in aggregate. Despite the visitors’ constant efforts, Deportivo backline stood strong.
Later, in the 78th minute, they added one more to make it 2-0 on the scoreboard and to hugely swift the momentum of the two-legged affair, in their favor.
The fixture was extremely hot-tempered. Mallorca alone saw six yellow cards and a direct red. Fans at the Iberostar will be waiting to give back, as they passionately believe they were unfairly treated.

Mallorca vs Deportivo La Coruna Prediction
Deportivo is on fire right now. They are on a four-match winning streak and is unbeaten in the last six. They also won seven of their last ten games and lost just once during this while. The team managed to score two or more goals in three of their last four ties and was unbeaten in nine of their last eleven on the road.
Importantly, all they need to do is keep the aggregate in their favor (which already is, with a 2-0 scoreline) to see their dream of taking part in the top division come true. Their form should help them with this objective.
Moreover, they have magnificently superior h2h stats against this opponent. They won five of the last six meetings and recorded 11 of the last 14 wins. Also, at this venue, they scored three or more goals in two of the last three fixtures and conceded just three in total from the last five.
As such, expect Deportivo to get the third ticket to the La Liga.
But do understand that Mallorca has the backing of the crowd. They are on a 14-game unbeaten run at home and won 12 of them as well. They scored two or more goals in six of their last 11 home ties too. By all means, expect goals from either side of the pitch this Sunday.
