Levante vs Mallorca predictions, H2H and match preview for this Friday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the visitors target their first away points of the campaign.
Levante vs Mallorca Preview
La Liga returns from the international break with a Friday night clash in Valencia. Both Levante and Mallorca will be pretty content with the starts they have made to the season. Newly promoted Mallorca may be the only team without an away point but they’ve been strong enough on their own patch to head into this game 5 points above the relegation zone while Levante have an extra 3 points under their belt and would go level with 6th placed Athletic were they to win this.
That will certainly be the objective for Paco Lopez and his side. Levante sprung a couple of real surprises prior to the international break as they defeated Real Sociedad and Barcelona in back-to-back matches before slumping to a narrow defeat at San Mames. They’ve been pretty strong at home overall this season too, taking 1.83 points per home game on average with only one side leaving the Ciutat de Valencia with maximum points so far.
Despite their strong start on home soil, Mallorca’s wait for an away point is certainly a growing concern. 8 of their opening 13 matches have been at Son Moix, with no other team in La Liga having played as many home fixtures. Clearly that will balance out as the season progresses and it’s vital they can find a way to start to grinding out a few results on their travels as it’s unrealistic to think they will beat the drop solely by virtue of their home results.
Their most recent away performance was their worst of the season, as Mallorca slumped to a 3-0 loss at Real Valladolid but they bounced back in style with a 3-1 home win over Villarreal. Vicente Moreno has had a fortnight to come up with a plan to get something from this game but it won’t be easy against a Levante side that will be buoyant having stunned Barcelona in their most recent outing in front of their own fans.
Levante vs Mallorca Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Levante
Levante can be a little bit inconsistent with struggling Espanyol bizarrely the only team to have defeated them on their own ground this term. However overall, they’ve looked more solid defensively this term with just 4 goals conceded in 6 home games so far, a big improvement on last season. Mallorca’s wretched away record suggests this one is likely to go the way of the hosts.
