KEY STATS

  • Villarreal are unbeaten in their last 8 home matches against Mallorca in all competitions
  • Villarreal have been winning at both half-time and full-time in 3 of their last 4 home La Liga matches against Mallorca
  • Villarreal have only failed to score in 2 of their last 28 home league games
  • Gerard Moreno has scored the first goal of the game in each of Villarreal’s last 2 home league matches
  • Mallorca have failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous 13 away league matches this season
  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of Mallorca’s last 9 away league matches.
  • There has been at least 1 first half goal scored in 4 of the last 5 La Liga matches between Villarreal and Mallorca

THE PREDICTION

Mallorca made a disastrous start against Barcelona on Saturday conceding after just two minutes and they went on to lose 0-4. They have to bounce back quickly as they make the trip to face Villarreal while still sitting in the bottom three. The hosts scored a late winner against Celta to get three points last time out and a late push could see them challenge for a European place. They should have too much all-round quality for Mallorca and their attack can expose the Islanders’ fragile defence so expect goals in this one.
