Mallorca vs Girona
Spanish La Liga
Date: 3 September 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca).
Mallorca picked up their first win of the season last weekend when they dispatched Rayo Vallecano 0-2 on the road.
It was yet another stellar defensive showing from Javier Aguirre’s men who have also kept a clean sheet on the opening day’s fixture away at Athletic Bilbao (a goalless draw).
Mallorca now have a win, a draw, and a loss each after three games of the new season. The team led by the Mexican manager Aguirre will get a nice chance to back up the last weekend’s win on Saturday afternoon since they host newly-promoted Girona at Visit Mallorca Estadi.
Girona claimed their inaugural win of the season in the second round, beating Getafe 3-1 on the home patch.
However, they failed to back it up last Friday, falling 0-1 at home to Celta Vigo. Michel’s troops thus now have two losses in the opening three matches of the season.
Girona did not good offensively in the lone away clash of the campaign so far, falling 1-0 away at Valencia on the opening day.
Knowing that Mallorca have picked up most of their points in front of their points in the previous term of La Liga, we have reasons to expect Girona to struggle to get things going on Saturday at Visit Mallorca Estadi.
Mallorca vs Girona Head-to-head
- Mallorca will go into this with three wins in the last four head to head meetings against Girona.
- Mallorca won three, drew one, and lost one of the last five home fixtures against Girona, shipping just two goals in the process.
- None of the previous five head to head matches between the two rivals saw two or more goals scored.
Mallorca vs Girona Prediction
This has historically been a tight matchup between two defensive-minded sides. Knowing how tough to break down Mallorca have been all summer in the preseason affairs, we fancy the hosts to keep a clean sheet on Saturday.
You can back this scenario at the 2.20 odds, while Mallorca’s victory is priced at the 2.10 odds. You should not forget that Girona have failed to score in two of three league matches so far in the season.
