Barcelona vs Mallorca predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as the Catalans aim to extend their 100% home record.
Barcelona vs Mallorca Preview
This match pits the side with La Liga’s only remaining 100% home record against the only side yet to pick up a point away. Put simply, there should only be one result but that’s not to say it will all be plain sailing for the Catalans against a Mallorca side that has already defeated Real Madrid this season, admittedly on their own ground.
Barcelona have won 6 out of 6 at Camp Nou in La Liga averaging an impressive 4.17 goals per game. They have only kept one clean sheet though so that is at least one small glimmer of hope for the visitors. With their Champions League group already won, Ernesto Valverde has no reason to rest players ahead of their midweek trip to the San Siro so we should again see a front three of Griezmann, Suarez and Messi given Ousmane Dembele’s latest injury setback.
That clearly will give this Mallorca defence plenty to worry about and it’ll be interesting to see how the visitors approach this. They have plenty of creativity in their ranks with the likes of Kubo and Aleix Febas catching the eye but Vicente Moreno may opt to field a more workmanlike side in this game.
Mallorca are just one point above the dropzone now and that’s a concern given there are signs that 18th placed Celta Vigo are starting to find their feet under new management. They may well slip into the relegation places this weekend but it’s still worth taking a moment to reflect on just how quickly Mallorca have risen. They were still playing Segunda B football eighteen months ago and this trip to Camp Nou will be a special occasions for all the players who have taken part in that rise.
Barcelona vs Mallorca Predictions
Score Prediction: 4-1 Barcelona
Mallorca may have their moments in this game and they may even have a goal to celebrate here with Barcelona struggling for clean sheets right now. However with Messi in top form, there should only be one winner and we could see Barça rack up 4+ goals for the 6th time in 7 home league games this term.
