Mallorca vs Espanyol: prediction for the Copa del Rey fixture
Mallorca started the Spanish Cup with a victory over Gimnastica Segoviana (2:0 a.e.t.), after that they left no chance to Llaneros (6:0). But everything is not going great for them in La Liga, opponents are much stronger in there. In 20 rounds The Pirates recorded four victories and eight draws, which brought 20 points and a 15th spot in the standings.
Team's offensive line is looking weak, they scored only 17 goals so far. Southerners lost three most recent matches to Granada (1:4), Barcelona (0:1) and Levante (0:2).
Raillo and Rodriguez won't feature today.
After 20 rounds of La Liga season Espanyol have seven victories and five draws, which brought 26 points and an 11th spot in the standings. Catalan club is lacking consistency, but they are fighting for every single point after the promotion from Segunda.
After an away victory over Valencia (2:1) The Budgerigars started the 2022 with a home defeat to Elche (1:2). Team got off to an easy start in Spanish Cup - Vicente Moreno's men recorded victories over Solares (3:2), Palencia (2:1) and Ponferradina (2:1 on pens).
This bet played in each of three most recent matches of Espanyol
In 2 out of 3 most recent matches of the visitors goals were scored only in one of the halves
In five most recent matches none of teams played a single draw
Opponents in this match are pretty even. Both clubs have just been promoted from Segunda and they will try to achieve success in Copa del Rey as well. We think that teams will try to play cautiously on defense, because any mistake can be very costly.
Our prediction -total under 2 goals
In our opinion, the winner won't be decided in the regular time. We think that this game will go to extra time.
Our second bet is on a draw
