Mallorca vs Real Valladolid Match Preview
Mallorca extended their winless run on the road last week after Real Sociedad breezed past them with a thumping 3-0 scorecard. Despite holding their counterparts to a goalless first half in that latter clash, the hosts let down their guard post the restart and were punished thrice by the end of the final forty-five minutes.
Having garnered just eighteen points so far, Mallorca are currently on the verge of falling into the dreaded relegation zone.
On the other hand, Real Valladolid will be making the trip to Estadio de Son Moix on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Los Blancos at home. The visitors are now without a taste of success in their last nine La Liga fixtures on the trot, and are, at the moment, sitting right above the hosts on the ladder.
However, with a four-point cushion at hand for the guests, it is Mallorca who are the ones in desperate need of a win this week.
Mallorca vs Real Valladolid Prediction
Home advantage has made the difference for Mallorca this season and there can be no doubt about it. All five of the wins that the hosts have bagged so far have come from their clashes on home soil.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team have stumbled just twice in their last seven games here. In sharp contrast, Real Valladolid have secured all three points on just two occasions away from home so far. Their last taste of success on the road came in their 2-0 victory against Espanyol, way back in September.
With home advantage out of the equation for them this week, Mallorca are sizing up to be the favorites to secure the bragging rights. Be that as it may, Real Valladolid have been recording back to back wins in their past four visits here.
Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also finished in favor of the guests, back a Draw no bet just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Mallorca have been found napping at the back in their clashes here lately. Miserably, they have conceded a goal or more in each of their past five fixtures at home.
Moreover, the visitors have been consistent in finding the back of the net in each of their last four trips here. Hence, it is certainly well within reason to expect both teams to have their names on the scoresheet this Saturday.
