Mallorca vs Levante Preview
Mallorca’s bid to stage one of the most dramatic late escape acts in LaLiga history continues on Thursday as they play host to Levante at Son Moix. The visitors have been playing pretty well since the resumption but don’t have anything to play for now having mathematically secured their survival and Mallorca will be hoping to take advantage.
If they play like they did in their most recent home game, they will certainly stand a good chance of chalking up the win they need. That was a convincing 5-1 win over Celta Vigo but with just 1 point collected from their other 6 games since the resumption, they are still in dire trouble. With the exception of a trip to Sevilla at the weekend, the fixture list has been kind to them with 3 of their final 4 games against sides who seemingly have nothing to play.
That’s no guarantee of a positive result though. Levante have never looked in serious danger of going down yet they’ve continued to churn out the results, losing just 1 of their 7 matches since the restart despite effectively having no home games with their usual home undergoing redevelopment works. Paco Lopez will now see the final four matches as a chance to experiment a little but he will have to work hard to ensure his players remain motivated.
Mallorca are boosted by the return of top scorer Ante Budimir from suspension for this one. The Croat has netted 12 league goals this season, an excellent return in his debut Spanish top flight campaign. He’s likely to generate interest in the event that Mallorca do go down.
As for Levante, Enis Bardhi returns from a ban of his own, while there is likely to be some rotation with Hernani and Gonzalo Melero potentially getting more minutes.
Mallorca vs Levante Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Mallorca
Levante have been tougher to beat since the restart but with not much to play for, there is a danger they could slip back into their old habits which included being a bit too easy to play against away from home. They lost a huge 79% of their away games this season prior to the pandemic and Mallorca could just have the edge here and will take confidence from their dominant showing against what was an in-form Celta in their most recent home game.
