Villarreal vs Mallorca Soccer Betting Prediction
Does the Submarino Amarillo solve this compulsory task?
With a goal in the second minute of injury time Villarreal CF came back from the break with a 1-0 away win at Celta Vigo. The “Submarino Amarillo”, which suffered three defeats in a row before the break, is back in the battle for the international starting places. Valencia is currently only two points behind.
Now with RCD Mallorca, a welcome guest at the Estadio de la Cerámica. The Bermellones are the weakest away team in the La Liga and only took five points in foreign places. The betting base odds comparison provides information about which bookmaker offers the best odds at Villarreal against Mallorca.
In Villarreal against Mallorca, the forecast must nevertheless take into account that the Mallorquins could already celebrate a 3-1 victory over the men of Javier Calleja in the first leg. Overall, only one Villarreal victory from the last four meetings is on record.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day, not only is there a clear playful difference between the two teams, but the Bermellones ‘away record is just too weak to play a tip on the Barralets’ point win against Villarreal against Mallorca.
We are therefore betting on the favorites, which could now build up a great momentum for the final sprint after the successful restart.
Villarreal – Statistics & current form
In the 2005/06 season, Villarreal CF was still in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Two years later, the “Submarino Amarillo” even celebrated the Spanish runner-up. Since then, however, the club, which was founded in 1923, has experienced many violent ups and downs.
In 2012, the kickers moved from the Spanish east coast to the second division, before only one year later the direct return was successful. This was followed by five seasons in which the yellow submarine was always qualified for the Europa League, where in 2016 the semifinals were reached for the third time in club history after 2004 and 2011.
Successful restart after three defeats in a row before the Corona break
Then, however, the yellow-blue suffered a setback for the 2018/19 season. With only seven points ahead of a relegation zone, Javier Calleja’s troop only came in 14th. It was all the more remarkable that those responsible still held on to the coach who was only hired in January 2019 and started the new season with him.
A decision that could have been worthwhile, although there are still ten game days to complete before accounting. After Villarreal celebrated an important 1-0 away win at Celta Vigo after the three defeats in a row before the break last Saturday, the “Submarino Amarillo” is now back on track.
Pioneering weeks with duels against direct competitors
Only two points are still missing in seventh place, which would at least go into the qualification round for the Europa League. Villarreal versus Mallorca also speaks for the tip on the home win of the men from the Spanish east coast that the guest has lost ten of their 13 away games so far and has only managed to score five points in the distance.
It is all the more important that the team, which was strengthened in the winter with the former Dortmund Paco Alcácer, takes the swing of the lucky three and last minute goal against the Célticos with them and starts a small series.
So they are finally facing three games against Granada, Seville and Valencia, in which it is against direct competitors in the fight for Europe. If the “Submarino Amarillo” goes into these pioneering games with the maximum yield of six points after the restart, the self-confidence that results from this could certainly tip the scales.
Probable line-up of Villarreal:
Asenjo – Moreno – Torres – Albiol – Mario – Cazoria – Trigueros – Anguissa – Gómez – Moreno – Alcácer

Mallorca – Statistics & current form
It was clear to everyone involved in advance that the season would be difficult for RCD Mallorca. After all, a resurrection of the finalists of the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999 was not necessarily to be expected.
In the 2017/18 season, the Bermellones played in the third-highest Spanish division, in which they made it through Coach Vicente Moreno. They were surprisingly successful as promoters in the past season, when in the end La Liga 2 was only fifth, but the promotion playoffs were subsequently won.
Only one counter is missing from the saving bank
With a squad that still contains some promotional heroes who were already in the third division for “La Ensaimada Mecánica” and which was strengthened primarily by loan players, the aim was to somehow resist the direct relegation . An undertaking that the Barralets did well overall.
RCD Mallorca currently occupies 18th place in the table and would have lost the right to start again for La Liga. However, there is currently only one point missing from the first non-relegation zone, which is why everything is still possible with ten games outstanding and 30 points yet to be awarded.
Only one win away since returning to La Liga
However, the newcomer must slowly but surely bring the good results from the home games, where 20 out of 45 possible points were won, to the field. The Bermellones have won only one away game since their promotion, taking only five points away. That makes Vicente Moreno’s troupe a very welcome guest in La Liga.
Mallorca just landed the first away three in the last competitive game before the compulsory break in the 2-1 victory in Eibar and thus at least ended the losing streak. With a 0: 4 at home against Barcelona, the re-start failed.
To make matters worse, playmaker Dani Rodríguez also saw his fifth yellow card in the game against Blaugrana and is missing in this important away game on the Spanish east coast. This is also a factor, why at Villarreal against Mallorca the odds of the bookmakers clearly speak against the Bermellones.
Probable lineup of Mallorca:
Reina – Sastre – Raillo – Valjent – Pozo – Kubo – Sevilla – Pedraza – Febas – Budimir – Hernandez
Last games from Mallorca:
06/13 2020 Mallorca 0 – 4 Barcelona
03/07 2020 Eibar 1 – 2 Mallorca
03/01 2020 Mallorca 0 – 1 Getafe
02/21 2020 Real Betis 3 – 3 Mallorca
02/15 2020 Mallorca 1 – 0 Deportivo Alaves
Villarreal vs Mallorca Direct comparison
Head to head: 17-10-14
There have been a total of 41 clashes between Villarreal CF and RCD Mallorca so far, and with 17 games won, the yellow-and-blue lead just before the 14 wins of the Bermellones. Ten draws round off the direct comparison.
The Barralets were already able to win the first leg on November 10, 2019 with 3: 1 and thus continue their good results. The Mallorcans have lost only one of the last four matches. The last away win at the Estadio de la Cerámica was on December 3, 2003 …
Villarreal vs Mallorca Soccer Betting Prediction
In Villarreal against Mallorca, the prediction is primarily shaped by the tremendous weakness of the Bermellones away. Until the 2-1 win in Eibar on the penultimate matchday, the promoted player could not convert a single of his previous twelve away games into a three.
It is no wonder that the “Submarino Amarillo”, which is fighting for a Europa League starting place, is in its own stadium in the clear favorite role, especially since the guests, who are not all that well occupied, besides playmaker Dani Rodríguez with Leonardo Koutris and Abdul Rahman Baba also lacks two defensive players injured.
Key facts – Villarreal vs Mallorca tips
Mallorca won the first leg 3-1
Villarreal ended a series of three defeats in a row with the 1-0 win at Celta Vigo
Mallorca is the worst away team in the La Liga with only five points away
So it seems to us to be largely without alternative to play at Villarreal against Mallorca Tip 1. It would have been desirable to boost the odds with an addition, but no market was 100% convincing because the increased risk did not justify the higher odds. We therefore leave it at tip 1, but choose a higher stake.
