Round 8 of the new La Liga campaign sees Mallorca visit Elche this coming Monday. The visitors hope to get a result at Estadio Martinez Valero to boost their chances of avoiding another relegation battle. The last time the pair played each other, Elche came out the other side as 3-0 winners and surely won't mind a repeat of that result.
Elche are number 20 in the table on one point after seven matches. Mallorca rank as number 12 with eight points after seven matches played.
With both Elche and Mallorca coming off disappointing defeats in their previous outing, we could be in for a cautious battle. Both will be eager to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.
Elche scored six goals, conceded 22 and fought their way to zero clean sheets in their previous ten matches.
Mallorca travel to their next La Liga match, averaging a lowly one goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of ten goals, while also conceding nine goals. That amounts to an average of 0.9 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring five times.
Elche vs Mallorca Prediction
In their last three matches, Elche lost 1-4 against Athletic Bilbao, 3-0 against Barcelona and 2-1 against Rayo Vallecano. In their last six La Liga matches at home, Elche have one win, while they've drawn two and lost three.
In their previous three encounters, Mallorca lost 4-1 against Real Madrid, won 1-0 against Almeria and lost 0-1 against Barcelona. Mallorca claimed two wins against two draws and two defeats in their last six away matches in the La Liga. The scoreline from these matches reads six goals conceded and six scored.
Staying clear of finishing inside the relegation zone is probably the best Mallorca can aim for this season. Each and every point counts from the word go.
Elche find it tough these days to get a goal in, but Mallorca are equally lacklustre in front of goal currently, and going with under 2.5 goals in the betting market is the obvious choice.
