Mallorca vs Espanyol Prediction
Mallorca passed the round of 32 after a thumping victory over Llanera by 6-0. They then got advanced into the draw of 16 with Eibar who had previously defeated Tenerife by 2-1. Their duel ended in favour of the Pirates after taking a lead at the 82nd minute which eventually ended in 2-1.
The hosts are at the 15th spot on the table after 3 back to back league losses. With 20 points on the table, they won only 4 times while drawing and losing 8 games each. Their hat-trick losing run ended against Levante last week by 0-2.
On the other hand, round of 32 for Espanyol was scheduled against Palencia who are in the Segund Division B. That match ended in 2-1 and the Periquitos got into the draw of 16 against the Segunda Division’s Ponferradina who precedingly defeated UD Ibiza. Their meeting saw 2-1 at the end after a tensed shootout and the LaLiga favorites advanced into the Round of 8.
The visitors are on a sandwich run of wins and losses in the league with their first league fixture of the year ended in a defeat against Elche. They are 11th in the league with 7 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses.
We anticipate a home win at the Copa del Rey as RCD Mallora tends to perform with their level best in front their home fans meanwhile Espanyol won only once out of the 10 away league fixtures played this season.
