An exhausted Barcelona will be hosting RCD Mallorca for a La Liga fixture this weekend, as it looks to secure a Champions League spot for the next season.
After facing one of its worst starts to a season, which saw them win just 4 of their first 12 top-flight games, and crash out of the Champions League in the group stages, it felt that Barcelona had finally found some rhythm under the new coach Xavi Hernandez. However, the comeback seems to be unraveling pretty quickly, as the Catalan giants crashed out of the Europa League, and lost 2 of their last 3 La Liga matches.
As Barcelona hosts Mallorca, they go into this match with 3 consecutive home losses across competitions and have almost no chance of catching up with Real Madrid, who are 15 points ahead. In fact, with the 5th place Betis just 6 points behind, Barcelona cannot afford to lose any more games if it wants to save itself from further embarrassment.
After facing 7 consecutive defeats, Mallorca has managed to win 2 of its last 3 matches, including in the last match, where it beat bottom-placed Alaves 2-1. Despite these wins, Mallorca is threatened with its second relegation in 3 years. Granada, which is currently in 18th place, is just 2 points behind the visitors, who occupy the 15th spot. Coach Javier Aguirre knows that he has a tough job on his hands, and the odds on most football betting sites are stacked against him. With games against tough teams like Barcelona and Sevilla, it appears to be an uphill battle for Mallorca to save itself.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Barcelona F. C. vs RCD Mallorca La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Camp Nou, Barcelona, on 1st May 2022.
A battered and bruised Barcelona is expected to come out all guns blazing, as it looks to finish the season on a high, while Mallorca will be fighting to keep its head above water. In any other season, this would have been a walk in the park for the hosts, but the current form means that Barcelona will be made to work very hard to score.
Barcelona has quite a long list of players who are likely to miss out on this game, including Pedri, Ansu Fati, and Sergi Roberto due to injuries, and Moussa Wague due to suspension. On the other hand, the visitors have a full complement of players available for selection, with the only exception being Ruiz de Galarreta.
Despite its recent perils, we are backing the hosts to win this game.
Bet on Barcelona to win.
6 of the last 8 head to head games between the 2 clubs have produced 2.5 goals, and we believe the tradition to continue for this game, especially with Barcelona expected to score freely.
Mallorca has been unable to score in 6 of the last 8 head to head games. It also hasn’t scored in any of its last 3 away matches, while Barcelona has kept a clean sheet in 4 of its last 7 games. We expect it to do the same this Sunday too.
