Last season’s relegation survivors Mallorca visit Real Betis to Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday for a round 26 match in the La Liga.

Ranked as number five in the La Liga standings, Real Betis, have so far collected 42 points this season, while Mallorca collected 32 points. This puts them up as number 10 after 25 rounds.

Aiming for a place inside the top six, Real Betis need to strut their stuff against Mallorca this coming Sunday. The latter might not look like a team currently possessing the qualities to stop the home side from claiming a win, but they will be eager to spring a surprise.

Real Betis average 1.6 goals per game in their last ten games, scoring 16 times. They conceded 14 goals or an average of 1.4 per game, with two clean sheets along the way.

Mallorca scored nine goals, conceded 11 and kept their opponents from scoring three times in ten matches.

Real Betis hope to extend their grip on Mallorca, whom they outclassed in their last two meetings, winning 2-1 and 2-1, respectively.
