Mallorca vs Real Sociedad
Spanish La Liga
Date: 2 March 2022, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca).
Mallorca host Real Sociedad in the postponed game from the Matchday No 21 in Spanish La Liga on Wednesday evening at Visit Mallorca Estadi.
The team led by Luis Garcia have done very well in front of the home crowd lately and they will by no means be underdogs here against the Basques.
Mallorca have managed three successive wins in their own backyard across competitions, netting at least two goals in each of these victories in the process.
They have also shown a great resistance in a narrow 2-1 defeat at Real Betis ten days ago. The strong series of results helped Mallorca move up to 16th place in the league table.
The hosts are six points above the red zone line and they still have a lot of work to do before securing the top-flight survival.
Mallorca will fancy their chances of producing in the final third here since their rivals have been surprisingly easy to break down recently.
Real Sociedad shipped four goals in a tough defeat to arch enemies Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby ten days ago.
They also allowed five goals over two UEFA Europa League legs against RB Leipzig. Imanol Alguacil’s men were eliminated from Europe after a 1-3 home loss to the German outfit six days ago at Reale Arena in San Sebastian.
Last but not least, it is worth mentioning that Real Sociedad are winless in the last five away matches in the league.
Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Head-to-head
- Real Sociedad will rely on the recent tradition given they have won each of the last four encounters with Mallorca.
- None of the last six head to head meetings between the two outfits saw goals scored at both ends.
- However, Sociedad have managed only four victories in the previous 15 away clashes against Mallorca.
Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Prediction
The home court advantage has played a big role in the history of this matchup. Knowing that the hosts will come into this in much higher spirits after three subsequent victories at Visit Mallorca Estadi, we will back them to win or draw at the 1.66 odds.
We also like the 2.25 odds offered for the Over 2.5 goals FT pick very much since Real Sociedad have been anything but impressive defensively of late.
