Valladolid vs Mallorca
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla (Valladolid).
Valladolid and Mallorca will come into the reverse fixture of their last 32 round of Copa del Rey tie in completely opposite moods. The hosts have a massive edge after bagging a 1-2 victory in the first leg at Iberostar Estadi. It was Daniele Verde whose brace made the difference between the two teams on the day.
The tie is by no means ended, though. The visitors head into the rematch in much higher spirits following a streak of three wins and a draw in past four league affairs. Such run climbed them up to the 6th place in the Segunda Division ladder and we can now say Mallorca are genuine promotional candidates.
Vicente Moreno’s men managed to keep things quiet in last two wins over Numancia and Reus Deportiu. They scored two or more goals in three of last five league games.
Valladolid vs Mallorca: Head-to-head
The head to head tie is all levelled at 13 wins for each of the teams coming into their 32nd meeting.
Valladolid were much more successful in recent years as they won six and lost one of seven previous clashes against Los Bermellones.
Three or more goals were seen in nine of past ten head to head encounters.
Valladolid vs Mallorca: Prediction
We could see the continuation of a high-scoring H2H trend here. The visitors need to push hard for an early opener as they need to score minimum two goals to qualify for the next round. Given Valladolid’s defensive line revealed way too many holes in recent outings, we would not be shocked to see Los Bermellones making it count and advancing from this time in spite of losing the home tie 1-2 in late-October.
Pucela fell 2-4 at home to Leganes this weekend. They’ve been in poor touch lately in general claiming no more than one point from past four league games. The value is with Mallorca not to lose at 2.60, while you can also back three or more goals in the match at the odds of 2.00.
