After five games played, they registered one win, two draws and two losses, which was enough for them to get only five points and only thirteenth place in the table. We have to take into account the fact that they already had two serious opponents in the first five games, so the performance so far can be characterized as solid.
Last season they often played very well at home in front of their fans, and we think it’s the right time for them to try to get their first win of the season in front of their fans. Against Real Madrid in the last round, despite a convincing defeat, they showed a very brave game, which gives us the right to expect an offensive approach from them again.
Umar Sadiq was the real leader of Almeria during the last season. In the first three games he showed that he can be one of the better players in the league. However, the club management decided to sell him to Real Sociedad, and in reality, Almeria was weakened by at least 30 percent.
Just like Mallorca, Almeria recorded one win, a draw and three defeats in the first five matches. But, due to a slightly worse goal difference, they are one place lower in the table. They are on a streak of 2 losses, so it can be expected that they will be motivated enough to try to end that negative streak.
The meetings between these two teams are traditionally very “hard” and with a smaller number of goals. In the last meeting they played two seasons ago, Mallorca was better at home with a score of 2:0.
Injuries and suspensions
Mallorca: Greif, Kadewere and Ndiaye.
Almeria: Martos, Melero and Nieto. Centelles and de la Hoz are uncertain for this match.
Mallorca vs. Almeria Prediction
Given that it is a duel between two teams from the lower part of the table, it is to be expected that both will be very competitive. Such an approach to the game should bring a little more offensiveness and dynamism, so goals are our first choice.
In matches between teams of equal quality, it very often happens that both teams score at least one goal each. So, we believe that this time we could see at least two goals without major problems.
Prediction: Bet Builder – Over 2 goals and Over 0 Corners in the second half
