Mallorca vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Mallorca are hopeful of pulling out of the drop zone and have amassed seven points from their last four games – including an away win at Eibar last time out, their first triumph on the road this season.
Barcelona are back on top spot in La Liga despite enjoying just seven victories in their last 12 in the league – they scraped past Real Sociedad last time out.
Quique Setien’s side fell to a limp two-goal loss to Real Madrid in El Clasico earlier this month but Madrid’s lack of form has allowed them back on top.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 42/100 with a Mallorca victory priced at 13/2 and the draw available at 15/4.
There have been 94 goals over Barcelona’s 27 league games – almost four per game – while 72 goals have flown in during Mallorca games this term. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 6/4 with Bet Victor with over 4.5 at a tempting 18/5.
A ‘double chance’ on Mallorca to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 7/4 with William Hill while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/12.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 21/20.
One to watch for Mallorca: Ante Budimir netted twice in the reverse fixture and is Mallorca’s top La Liga scorer this season with nine strikes to his name – and is at 16/5 to score in this game.
One to watch for Barcelona: Arturo Vidal has already notched up six goals in La Liga this season – against Real Betis, Sevilla, Real Valladolid, Leganes, Alaves and Espanyol – in just eight starts and is at a tempting 17/5 to find the net here with 888 Sport.
Long shot: Barcelona have 11 clean sheets already this season while Mallorca have conceded just three goals in their last four. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 14/1.
