Mallorca vs Villarreal Prediction
Mallorca was completely outplayed the last match-day, as they took a hike to take on Valladolid. The guests did try to make something out of the fixture, but once the home team found the back of the net in the 40th minute, everything went downhill.
Later two more goals were added by Valladolid, to complete the 3-0 scorecard.
Villarreal meanwhile, had a tough pill to swallow as they locked horns with Eibar, in their latest away tie. Things were on an even scale till the latter phase of the second half, but the hosts scored in the 63rd minute to have the scales tipped in their direction. The Yellow Submarines did return the favor late in the 88th minute.
But breaking the visiting contingent’s heart, Eibar scored the winner in the fifth minute of the injury time.
This weekend, take into consideration that Mallorca is a new entrant into the top division. They are still to get accustomed to the trials and tribulations associated with one of the best leagues in the world, and it reflects in their current league position.
Going on, they may have the home advantage for the day, but do note that Villarreal has been one of the top-performing sides in La Liga for quite a long time, and are considered to be perennial contenders for the European positions.
Moreover, Mallorca is winless in their previous three games, and have managed to record just three wins in total from their preceding sixteen fixtures. On the contrary, their opposite number has lost just once in their past five match-ups, and are just four points away from the top-most position of the league table at the moment.
Taking these factors into consideration, the logical deduction is for Villarreal to have a cracker of a game, and come out unscathed.
