Mallorca vs Eibar
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Son Moix (Palma de Mallorca).
Eibar had to settle for a modest mid-table finish the previous season. Their form on the road was a major reason in them ending up at the 12th spot. All through the campaign, they could manage just two wins away from home. They also could manage to score the least number of goals with the away handicap – this included even the relegated teams.
As 2019-20 officially starts this weekend, fans hope for good enough returns from away ties. This would help them in securing a much better position in the table.
They have been allotted an easy fixture, comparatively, considering they are opening against new addition to the competition, Mallorca. After a stiff run in the Segunda, the squad had qualified for the playoffs and put forth some impressive performances to gain this honor.
One thing common throughout their post-season run was their shortcomings on the road, and them compensating for it at home. The squad could not manage a single victory in an away tie but won every single one in front of the home crowd.
Mallorca vs Eibar Head-to-head (h2h)
- It’s been quite a while since these two have lined up against each other. The last meeting had come in 2014.
- 100% of ties saw the squad on the road posting the victory.
- The home sides have never even scored a goal.
- As such, at this venue, Eibar holds a 100% winning record.
Mallorca vs Eibar Prediction
Eibar had been the worst team on the road the prior season in the La Liga, at least in terms of goal-scoring. They could manage just 15 goals from their total 19 matches, and to add on, they returned just two wins from their nineteen fixtures.
Moreover, the hosts for the day is high on confidence after the incredible run they had had in 2018-19, and especially in the playoffs. Importantly, at home, they really had been on another dimension, with these matches solely being responsible for taking them to the top division.
As such, we should expect the newly-promoted side to avoid the loss at the very least.
But taking into account their relative inexperience, and the fact that they are yet to stay unbeaten against this opponent at this venue, the chances for Mallorca to keep a clean sheet is extremely low.
