Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Prediction: La Liga Match on 02.03.2022
Betting TipReal Sociedad to Win
Mallorca will be looking to end a two-game losing streak in La Liga on Wednesday evening, as the play host to Champions League-chasing Real Sociedad. But, which side will get the vital win in the La Liga fixture?
La Liga Preview
Mallorca still hold a decent advantage over the relegation places in La Liga, but they will be able to rest more easily should they pull further clear. The Spanish giants are currently sitting in 16th place in the league standings, and are five clear of the relegation places.
That is a pretty healthy advantage at this stage of the campaign, but a victory on Wednesday could increase their advantage to eight points. This is their game in hand over the sides below them in the standings, and could see them rise up to 15th should they pick up the victory.
However, their recent form hasn’t been the best, as they have lost their last two in the league. Their latest defeat came in a home fixture against Valencia. It wasn’t for the lack of trying that they weren’t able to get back into that game, as they had 68% of the possession and registered 23 shots on goal.
Sociedad’s Champions League hopes have been hit over their last five games in La Liga, as they have picked up just two victories during that time. This is the game in hand that they have over a number of their rivals, and it could put them to within a single point of Barcelona.
The Spanish side picked up a hard-fought victory in their last fixture, as they managed to claim a 1-0 victory against Osasuna. The only goal of the game was scored in the 52nd minute by Aritz Elustondo. Another strong effort will be required here.
Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Head to Head
Sociedad have picked up victories in the last four meetings between the sides in La Liga. They are yet to concede during that run, and have scored a total of eight goals in the process. Their latest win came in October, as they won 1-0 at home.
Mallorca vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Mallorca will be confident coming into this fixture. However, we can’t see past Sociedad taking the points. Their excellent record in this fixture is a bonus, while their win over Osasuna at the weekend could have been pivotal towards their confidence.
