Reason for Mallorca vs Barcelona Predictions
Mallorca will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 4-1 La Liga defeat in their previous game at the hands of Granada. Over their past six fixtures, Luis García’s Mallorca has found the net a combined total of 11 times resulting in an average number of goals per match equal to 1.83. Checking on past results between these clubs stretching back to 29/10/2011 reveals that these encounters have not been good ones for Mallorca. They’ve not been able to get themselves any victories whatsoever, while Barcelona has simply been better than them, earning wins in 100 percent of those ties. There is just the sole fitness concern for the Mallorca gaffer Luis García to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy group. Antonio Raíllo (Ankle Injury) is out of contention. Takefusa Kubo is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the selector for the starting lineup.
In their previous game, Barcelona drew 1-1 in the La Liga tie with Sevilla. Looking at their form, and Barcelona have been scored against in 6 of their last six matches, seeing opposing sides hit ten goals overall. At the back, Barcelona has not been doing too well. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued into this next match. Barcelona boss Xavi Hernández currently has to contend with reduced team options. Ansu Fati (Hamstring Injury), Memphis Depay (Hamstring Injury), Dani Alves (Coronavirus), Clément Lenglet (Coronavirus), Álex Balde (Coronavirus), and Sergi Roberto (Hamstring Injury) are those who can’t be considered. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Moussa Wagué, Gavi, Sergio Busquets, and Ez Abde. Philippe Coutinho is finally the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Frenkie de Jong showed that he is a great player, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him.
Barcelona is the favorite in this match, and they have not lost to Mallorca for five games in a row. We expect the visitors to pick up all three points.
The forecast for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
