Mallorca vs Real Sociedad
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Son Moix (Palma de Mallorca).
Sociedad is a veteran of this competition, compared to the newly promoted Mallorca. The latter had the fortune, to begin with, a win, but that should not be taken as an indication as to how the rest of the season would progress.
This is one of the toughest leagues in the world, and the former Segunda competitor will take some time to get used to the trials and tribulations of this upper-division.
For example, this upcoming tie could prove to be a tough nut to crack for Mallorca, considering the grit and resolve usually shown by the incoming Sociedad. Moreover, last campaign, they had missed out on a European spot by a whisker and will be determined to make amends this time around.
Helping their cause will be the away form that Real had shown in 2018-19 – which saw them end up as the sixth-best road group in the competition.
Hope is not lost for Mallorca though. H2h fixtures have been abundantly in favor of the teams that had home advantage for a very long time.

Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Prediction
The experience factor which Sociedad scores plenty in will surely play a factor in determining the outcome of this tie. True, they are on the road, but the team will be raring to finish at least seventh or higher in the table, and as such each and every game counts.
Moreover, they have been one of the best away sides in the competition last time around, and we could count on them to hold their own against a newly-promoted side.
Going on, the home advantage of Mallorca and the momentum they have built over the course of the last year plus their win in the opener will surely give them the confidence to play attacking football. Also, 14 of the previous 15 h2h clashes saw the home team found the back of the net.
Reading all these together, backing the BTTS option should provide good returns.
