Mallorca faces Sevilla
Mallorca faces Sevilla at the Iberostar Estadi in a match from the 18th round of La Liga. Like usual we are going to present you our La Liga predictions for this week.
Typically for a newcomer, Mallorca are having a tough season so far. The club from Palma is currently 17th in the league with 15 points, just one point above the 18th Celta Vigo and the relegation zone. Every single point is going to be crucial for Mallorca until the end of the season, no matter if it’s one or three. This is their mentality before hosting Sevilla, but against Los Rojiblancos is going to be really hard.
In the previous round Mallorca stopped a negative run of three consecutive losses. Vicente Moreno’s team visited Celta in Vigo and went home with a point after a 2-2 draw. It was Salva Sevilla and Ante Budimir who scored for the visitors.
Mallorca’s centre back Antonio Jose Raillo was sent off with two yellow cards, so he won’t be avaliable in the home game against Sevilla.
Speaking of Sevilla, Los Rojiblancos are doing pretty well at the moment. The Andalusians are third in the league with 31 points, five points behind the leader Barcelona. Julen Lopetegui’s team had some difficult moments since the beginning of the season, but they are doing pretty well.
In the previous round Sevilla suffered their 4th defeat for the season, though. Los Rojiblancos hosted Villarreal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and got beaten with 1-2. Munir scored Sevilla’s only goal in the game.
These are our La Liga predictions for the match between Mallorca and Sevilla on Saturday. The visitors will seek some kind of redemption after their home defeat against Villarreal, but Mallorca won’t give up without some fight. We believe it’s going to be pretty interesting at the Iberostar Estadi.
