Mallorca vs Espanyol Prediction & Match Preview

Mallorca vs Espanyol Spanish LaLiga Prediction by LeagueLane

Mallorca vs Espanyol 
Spain – La Liga 
Date: Friday, 28 October 2022 
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET 
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi. 

Both Mallorca and Espanyol are stuck in the bottom half of the league table, and seldom recorded wins all through the campaign. They let in goals in plenty right from the start of the season, and seem to have no intention of stopping anytime soon. 

Mallorca are placed 12th in the table, with three wins against their name. Only one of these three victories came in the past five match-days. 

They are also on a losing streak at home, and won just once at this venue so far in the competition. 

They are desperate to put an end to their dismal streak of results, and will try their absolute best at home this Friday to secure the much-needed three points. 

Meanwhile, Espanyol are in an even bigger mess. They have two wins to their name in the past six months, and defense has not been a strong suit for them the past few years. 

Furthermore, they won just once on the road, and during this stretch they went on multiple losing streaks. 

It goes without saying that the two teams will consider each other as the perfect opponents to register their wins against. Expect a fierce encounter this Friday, and as such anticipate mistakes in plenty too. 

Chances are high for us to witness a high-scoring affair this weekend between the two squads. 

Mallorca vs Espanyol Head-to-head (h2h) 

  • The latest encounter ended in a 1-0 win for Espanyol. 
  • Two of the past four clashes had three or more goals. 
  • The latest match-up at this ground ended in a 2-1 win for the hosts. 
  • Three of the former five meetings at this stadium had three or more goals. 

Mallorca vs Espanyol Prediction & Analysis 

Mallorca lost 0-1 at home the last match-day, against Sevilla, and their only win at home this season came against Almeria. Do also note that they have a single clean sheet to their name this whole season in all competitions. 

Their form was not any different at home even in the previous season, with the team going on frequent losing stretches here. 

On the other hand, Espanyol registered a 2-2 draw at home the past game week, against minnows Elche. It is quite concerning that they won just once on the road in 2022, and they also let in two or more goals in all but two of their road trips this season. 

Considering these observations, as well as previous h2h meetings, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend between the two squads.
