Mallorca will hope to end their winless run when they host Valencia at the Iberostar Stadium in the La Liga on Sunday.
Mallorca Match Form
Mallorca find themselves in the bottom three in the league. They have not won a single time in their last five La Liga fixtures. Their most recent game ended in a win as they beat Zamora in the second round of the Copa del Rey. Aleix Febas scored the only goal of the game as Mallorca progressed to the next round of the competition. Manager Vicente Moreno will hope that this win will change their fortunes in the league as well.
Mallorca’s last league game was against Granada. Angel Sanchez scored the goal as Granada claimed a 1-0 win. Mallorca had more possession and shots on goal, but they failed to get anything from the game. They conceded yet again, which is one of their biggest problems. Only bottom side Espanyol have conceded more goals than Mallorca in the league this season. Mallorca’s last clean sheet in the league came against Real Madrid in October.
Ante Budimir is their top scorer, and he has scored six times in the league. However, only five players have scored at all, which is a worry. Budimir is very important for them, and he has five assists to his name as well. Mallorca’s last La Liga win came in November when they beat Villarreal 3-1. The game saw three penalties and Mallorca converted two of them to get the three points.
Valencia Match Form
Valencia are unbeaten in their last five league games. Real Betis were the last team to beat them in La Liga when Valencia lost 2-1 in November. However, their last game also ended in a loss. Valencia faced Real Madrid in Saudi Arabia in the semi-final in the Supercopa de Espana. Madrid claimed a 3-1 win on the night. Dani Parejo scored for Valencia, but the goal was nothing more than a consolation.
Their last league game was against Eibar, and they beat them 1-0. Maxi Gomez got the only goal of the game on the night. Gomez has scored seven goals in his debut season at the club. Since moving over from Celta Vigo, the Uruguayan has impressed. Valencia are sixth in the table, as they attempt to get into the European places. Sevilla in fourth place are four points above as of now. Valencia finished fourth last season, and they are through to the knockout stages of the Champions League this time.
Valencia have won their last two league meetings with Mallorca. Both those games ended as 2-0 wins for Valencia. Mallorca have only won once in the last six head to head meetings between these two sides.
Mallorca vs Valencia Betting Tips
Valencia should extend that winning streak on Sunday against Mallorca. They are in great league form, and Mallorca have looked dreadful. The total goals should be under 2.5 as Mallorca will find it tough to score. A clean sheet is also likely for Valencia along with the win.
