Real Mallorca vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
Athletic Bilbao travel to Palma de Mallorca on Friday evening looking to return to La Liga and build on their fine spell of form ahead of the break, where they bagged seven points in three league outings so far and find themselves in the top of La Liga table despite a tough schedule.
Los Leones opened the campaign with a thriller 1-0 win over Barcelona and managed to build on it with a 1-1 draw at Getafe as well as a 2-0 win over Real Sociedad. They’ve been solid at the back and Gaizka Garitano will surely want his men to show a similar approach to the fixture on the day.
Mallorca have opened the season with a pick-me-up of their own as they secured all three points in a 2-1 win over Eibar, proving they’ll be no easy target at Iberostar Estadi. However, they’ve seen narrow losses to Real Sociedad (0-1) and Valencia (2-0) since, which could be more worrying for their dressing room atmosphere.
Los Bermellones have based their Segunda Division success on great consistency at this ground and doing the same in their first top-flight campaign in years will be important. Still, we feel shutting down in-form visitors will prove to be a tough task, with the recent head-to-head records very much against them.
We will thus back Athletic Bilbao to extend their five-match winning streak against Mallorca, going for an Away win at 13/10 with William Hill and hoping to see them build on the performances we’ve seen early in the new campaign.
Still, Mallorca have been scoring goals here and we don’t really see the visitors shutting all approaches to Unai Simon’s goal. With that in mind, we’re also going for a high-scoring game and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at an enticing 17/10 with 22bet.
