Mallorca vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction 14 February 2022

Mallorca hosts Athletic Bilbao in round 24 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Monday, February 14th at Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca)
Mallorca gained a long-awaited victory a week ago. A streak of five unsuccessful matches ended (four defeats and one draw). And now the chances of the Pirates to maintain a place in the elite is much higher. I remind you that they have 23 points after 22 rounds (there is one game in hand). This is enough to be on the 17th line. Luis Garcia’s men have several global problems in the current season, namely, low production and weak defense. They scored only 19 goals and conceded 34 times. As for a club that is in the lower part of the standings, Mallorca has quite good statistics at home: three victories, six draws, and two defeats with a goal difference of 10-9. Eight out of 11 home games ended with Under 2.5 goals scored.

Athletic Bilbao had been on a good run lately. In the last four rounds, the team did not suffer a single defeat (three victories and one draw). Naturally, such results could not but influence the standings of the Basques. Until recently, they were in the second ten, and now they are on the 8th line and not so far away from the European competition zone. Athletic Bilbao can boast of reliable defense. In 23 matches, the Lions conceded only 18 goals. But it would not be superfluous to improve the attacking actions (only 23 goals scored). Athletic is among the top four Spanish clubs in terms of away results: three victories, eight draws, and one defeat with a goal difference of 8-5.
In the first half of the season, Athletic Bilbao confidently dealt with Mallorca at home (2-0). Six out of seven previous head-to-head matches at Visit Mallorca Estadi ended with Under 2.5 goals scored. Mallorca plays well at home (15 points in 11 matches). In addition, the team is quite reliable in defense (only nine goals conceded). Consequently, Luis Garcia’s men have every chance to create serious problems for the powerful Basques. The latter scored only eight goals in 12 away matches. I think that Marcelino’s men may have problems with scoring a goal against the Islanders. Both teams are trying to play cautious football. Therefore, I do not expect high production from them.

Prediction for the match:

Under 2.5 goals scored
