Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Mallorca will look to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Atletico Madrid when they take on Athletic Bilbao in the La Liga round 32. Los Bermellones continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels and the good news for Javier Aguirre is that both Inigo Ruiz de Galarreta and Antonio Raillo are back from suspension.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Sevilla. The Basques are eager to regain their spot in top six, but beating Mallorca on the island is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Both Zarraga and Vesga return from suspension, whereas experienced midfielder Iker Munian remains on the sidelines with a muscle injury. Oihan Sancet is banned for the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
