Mallorca vs Real Valladolid predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as two bottom six sides clash.
Mallorca vs Real Valladolid Preview
This is a really significant game in the relegation scrap. Mallorca currently sit just outside the relegation zone on 18 points. Real Valladolid are the side directly above them on 24 and they are also perhaps the team that looks most vulnerable to being sucked back into the real thick of the battle.
Therefore three points here would be priceless for Mallorca and they will fancy their chances of getting them. Their most recent match at Son Moix saw them demolish Valencia 4-1 to end a worrying downturn in their overall form. However they couldn’t back that up in Donostia last weekend, sinking to a 3-0 defeat against Real Sociedad as their away day blues continued.
The Balearic islanders remain bottom of the form table with just 4 points from their last 8 games overall but opponents Real Valladolid are the only team to have failed to win a single one of their last 8 matches. Sergio’s men gave a decent account of themselves last weekend but were ultimately beaten 1-0 by leaders Real Madrid, the 6th time in 8 matches that they’ve failed to score.
A lack of creativity has been a clear problem but they made a really bold and potentially exciting signing this week by taking Hatem Ben Arfa on a free. The mercurial Frenchman could provide the kind of inspiration that has been lacking but he is unlikely to be thrown straight in here.
As for Mallorca, we are unlikely to see any major alterations despite defeat last time out.
Mallorca vs Real Valladolid Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Mallorca
Valladolid will set their stall out to be tough to break down as they always do but Mallorca are pretty strong at home and they do have a couple of really gifted technical players who might just be able to prize open their back-line. Mallorca look capable of winning this one to bring Valladolid further back towards the relegation scrap although the recent H2H strongly suggests differently.
