Mallorca vs Villarreal Betting Tips and Preview – Spanish La Liga 2019/2020

Mallorca will host Villareal at the Iberostar Stadium in the La Liga on Sunday.

After 12 games of the season, Mallorca are flirting with relegation. They are 17th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone. Celta Vigo in 18th place have 9 points, which is two less than Mallorca’s total. After two successive wins in October, Mallorca are on a winless streak as of now. Their last win came against Real Madrid at the Iberostar Stadium. Lago Junior scored the only goal of the game as Mallorca claimed an impressive win over the Los Blancos.

In the next game, they travelled to Leganes and suffered a 1-0 defeat. A 2-2 draw against Osasuna followed before they faced Valladolid last Sunday. A 3-0 win in favor of Valladolid was the result, and the scoreline did not do any favors to Mallorca. Valladolid had six efforts on target in the game, compared to just one from Mallorca. Manager Vicente Moreno will want to get back to winning ways in front of the home fans on Sunday.

One of Mallorca’s major problems this season has been their attack. They have scored only nine times so far, and only the three sides below them in the table have a worse tally. Ante Budimir is their top-scorer with three goals to his name. On the other end of the field, they have conceded twice as many goals. Improvement on both fronts is necessary to improve their league position.

Villareal are in a much better place, as they are eighth in the table. They are just three points below Atletico Madrid who are in fourth. That spot is the last Champions League spot, and Villareal are not far behind. Their last game in the La Liga ended in a goalless draw against Athletic Bilbao. It was always going to be a tough game facing the best defensive side in the division.

In contrast, Villareal are one of the worst defensively. They have let in 16 goals already, which has severely hurt them in some games. But an excellent attacking unit has kept them at such a high position in the table. Villareal have scored 25 goals so far, a tally which is bettered only by leaders Barcelona. Gerard Moreno has been at the forefront, scoring eight goals in the La Liga. The likes of Karl Toko Ekambi and Santi Cazorla have also added to the cause in terms of goals.

Mallorca claimed a heavy 4-0 victory in their last game against Villareal. However, that game took place in 2012, which is a long time ago. Mallorca were in the second division for a long time, whereas Villareal maintained their La Liga status.

They have been in the top flight for a reason, and Villareal will be favorites to beat Mallorca on Sunday. Their attack is by far the superior one, and the total goals should be over 2.5 in the game. Mallorca should score in the game as well, but Villareal’s firepower should be too much for them to handle.
