Sevilla vs Mallorca Preview
Fans of Sevilla and Mallorca, as well as quite a few other teams near the bottom will be tuning in for this one. The visitors could blow the relegation battle wide open if they can claim a surprise win at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, but it won’t be easy against a Sevilla side that can all but secure Champions League qualification with victory.
Sevilla have been one of the most impressive teams in Spain since the restart. They’ve won four and drawn four and you have to go all the way back to February 9th for their last defeat. They produced a 2nd Half turnaround to win 2-1 at San Mames last time out and that victory ensured they will be in Europe again next season although clearly Champions League football will be the target now they’ve put themselves in such a strong position.
Mallorca meanwhile have given themselves a genuine sense of hope again having won 2 of their last 3 matches. Goals from youngsters Take Kubo and Cucho Hernandez sealed a victory against Levante in midweek and you wouldn’t think they are in a relegation battle at times given the quality of some of their football. However a record of just 5 away points all season is testament to the difficult task they face in trying to get a result here.
With games against mid-table Osasuna and Granada to come, this is something of a free hit for Mallorca but they will be under immense pressure to win their final two games if they lose here and even then they would still most likely be relying on a favour or two elsewhere.
Sevilla vs Mallorca Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Sevilla
If Mallorca are going to go down, they are clearly going to do it playing football and they will most likely look to play on the front foot as much as possible and ask questions of a Sevilla side that has actually claimed more points away than they have accumulated at home this term in LaLiga. However overall, Sevilla have much more all-round quality and Julen Lopetegui’s side will still be fully focused on the task of clinching Champions League qualification which suggests Mallorca will most likely leave Andalusia empty-handed.
