Barcelona travel to face Mallorca in a La Liga encounter at Estadi Mallorca Son Moix this coming Tuesday.

Mallorca are placed 15th with five points after six matches. Barcelona occupy a position as number one in the league on 16 points.

On the back of their current form, Barcelona are favoured to keep their momentum going against Mallorca. They have been able to string together a series of good results and will be eager not to let that slip away.

Mallorca only average a modest 1.1 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 11 goals. They also conceded 16 for an average of 1.6 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring four times.

Ahead of their coming La Liga match, Barcelona look in excellent goal-scoring shape. In their previous ten games, they hammered in an average of 2.2 goals a game. A highly respectable total of 22 goals, while also letting in 13 goals. The latter leaves an average of 1.3 per outing, in which they managed four clean sheets.

Not only did Barcelona win their latest meetings with Mallorca, they also did it without conceding. A 3-0 win in May 2023 was followed by a 1-0 win in October 2022.

Mallorca vs Barcelona Prediction

Mallorca Form

Consistency has not been a trademark for Mallorca recently, and their last three matches first saw them sharing the points in a 0-0 draw with Athletic Bilbao. This was followed by a 0-1 win against Celta Vigo, before they lost 5-3 against Girona. In their last six La Liga home matches, Mallorca have three wins, while they've drawn two and lost one. They scored six and conceded two goals.

A top half finish is the dream for Mallorca, but neutral spectators have them down for a season in the lower end of the La Liga.

Barcelona Form

Barcelona look fabulous with three wins on the trot, starting off against Real Betis, who were defeated by 5-0. Then, Royal Antwerp got outclassed in a 5-0 win, before beating Celta Vigo by 3-2. Barcelona won three of a possible six away matches in the La Liga, as well as playing one draw and suffering two defeats. They scored 12 while also conceding 11 times.

Barcelona would probably consider anything lower than a second place finish to be a disappointment. The visitors have one eye on a title challenge and know a good start is imperative.

The crowd usually get a very entertaining encounter, when Mallorca face Barcelona, and we see no reason for this to end on Tuesday. The value bet lies with goals.

Mallorca show off a record of one win, two draws and three defeats in the La Liga this season. Barcelona put five wins, one draw and zero defeats on the board in the La Liga.

Mallorca vs Barcelona Betting Tips

With three goals in six matches Abdon Prats has been a regular feature on the scoresheet in recent matches, making him a tempting betting prospect, when going up against Barcelona and their defence. The visitors hope Robert Lewandowski adds another to his current tally of five goals in his latest matches.

Mallorca claimed five wins in the previous 10 matches at home across all tournaments, as well as drawing four and losing one. Barcelona won five of their last 10 away games, as they also drew one and lost four of these matches. Barcelona got the first goal of the game in seven of their last 10 away matches, with Mallorca doing the same in four of their previous 10 games at home.

Both teams to score was a winning bet three times in the ten encounters most recent outings between Mallorca and Barcelona. More than two goals came out seven times, as Mallorca scored 0.5 goals on average, with Barcelona pulling off 3.2 goals on average. In the past ten matches for Mallorca across all competitions, over 2.5 goals happened in three times of them with an average of 1.5 goals goals scored by themselves. Betting on over 2.5 goals in the last ten Barcelona-matches would have returned some winnings in seven of them. Barcelona managed to score an average of 2.9 times goals per game.
