On May 1, Visit Mallorca Stadium (Palma de Mallorca) will host the match of the 32nd round of the La Liga, in which Mallorca will compete with Athletic. The battle will start at 19:00 CET.
The club was headed by Javier Aguirre a year ago. Nowadays, he is a real cult hero among football fans. The experienced Mexican specialist and his new wards managed to get enough points during the previous spring to finally leave “the Bermellones” in the Primera. The higher mentioned result had been impossible to achieve for several of his predecessors. Speaking about the new temporada, the team got rid of the status of “a football lift”. It showed the statistics of a strong middle club and already in the winter took the points, which gave an opportunity not to worry about being relegated to the Segunda. It seemed that the players would eventually quit performing. Nevertheless, Mallorca woke up in April – it “snatched” a draw in the away battle against Valladolid and successively defeated Celta and Getafe. To be honest, a home 1-3 failure in the match with Atlético did not make the team upset.
The team had returned Ernesto Valverde as the head coach by the start of the current season. Not so long ago, he demonstrated good results here, and even received an invitation to Barcelona, where, taking into account the results of his successors, the specialist was pretty good. Txingurri was out of work during the summer, and the management from Bilbao took the higher mentioned advantage. As a result, “the Basques” added in the game, however, they still lack stability. The final of the Copa del Rey is not available because of the goal in stoppage time – it was scored at native Estadio San Mamés in the second leg of the 1/2 stage by Osasuna. At the same time, the team added in the game at the finish line of the Primera. There, the points have been lost only in the battle with Getafe since mid-March (a home 0-0 draw), which allowed to gain a foothold in the European zone. And only an unbelievably strong Sevilla was able to defeat “the Basques”.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Athletic has not lost for 9 battles in a row. Finally, Mallorca won with a 3-2 score in February 2022. Moreover, the beginning of the new season brought a 0-0 draw in Bilbao.
Bookmakers consider the guests to be the favourite of the following struggle. Still, Mallorca can make a lot of troubles. Thus, we decide to bet on “total: over 1.5” (odd: 1.64).
