Real Zaragoza vs Mallorca Prediction
Real Zaragoza made light work of Gimnastic in the previous round with a 3-1 scorecard on the road. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter matchup, forcing their counterparts to settle for no more than a consolation goal.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team have been nothing but success in their past three games in all competitions. They have featured at the losing end just twice in their previous ten on the trot as well.
On the other hand, Mallorca booked their berth in the round of sixteen by narrowly taking down Zamora by a 1-0 scoreline in their respective Copa Del Rey clash. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the guests have been coping very poorly in their domestic campaign.
The visitors are yet to settle with the pace of the La Liga, and are currently on the brink of falling into the relegation zone too. Piling on even more misery, Mallorca have hardly been a threat on the road this season.
Disappointingly they have admitted defeat in seven of their past ten outings. Furthermore, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous six visits to this stadium either.
As such, Real Zaragoza are likely to edge past the visiting cavalry in this one. However, the hosts have shared the spoils thrice at home so far. Taking into account that two of their last five meetings with this foe here have also ended in a tie, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.
In addition, despite the poor string of results on the road, it needs saying that Mallorca have not gone down without a fight. They have found the back of the net in all but one of their past six outings in the running.
Moreover, the visitors have had their names on the scoresheet in eight of their previous ten h2h meetings here. Hence, count on neither to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
