Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Montilivi will host Saturday’s football game between Girona and Mallorca. The Catalan outfit came from behind to share the spoils with Las Palmas, with Uruguay international Stuani once again being sorely missed. The last season’s top scorer is facing race against the clock to be fit for the Mallorca clash, but, as things stand now, Senegal international Mamadou Sylla will lead the line for the hosts.
Los Bermellones, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Ponferradina, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Catalonia. Mallorca have been impressive at the back in the first half of the season, and seeing that Stuani is likely to miss the game through injury, under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of their previous eight meetings in Segunda Division.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Luna):
Antonio Luna is a product of Sevilla football academy. The pacey left back was born in Son Servera, Spain on March 17, 1991 and he made his senior debut with Sevilla B. Antonio Luna made 32 appearances in the league for the reserve team, while playing 21 games for los Sevillanos in the Spanish top flight.
After ending his loan spell with Mallorca in 2013, Luna moved to England and signed a three-year deal with Aston Villa. It has to be noted that the Spanish footballer found the net for the Villans on his Premier League debut in a 3-1 win over Arsenal. After making 17 appearances in the English elite division for the Villa Park outfit, he returned to Spain in 2015, signing a deal with Eibar.
Antonio Luna scored one goal in 41 appearances for los Armeros before joining fellow La liga side Levante in 2017. You should know that Luna has five caps for Spain U20 team.
Highlighted Team (Mallorca):
Thanks to a win over Deportivo La Coruna in the 2018/2019 Segunda Division play-offs final Mallorca secured promotion to Primera Division. Los Bermellones returned to the Spanish top flight following a six-year absence. Over the years Mallorca have turned their Estadi de son Moix into a real fortress, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels.
Opened in June 1999, the venue can hold up to 23,142 people. The club based in Balearic Islands are well known for their red shirts with one black stripe and black shorts. Mallorca’s away colours are white and red. Former Barcelona and Inter ace Samuel Eto’o is undisputedly the most notable footballer who played for the club.
Back in 1999 Mallorca made it to the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup final, with the team suffering a 2-1 loss to Lazio in the title game. Four years later los Bermellones won Spanish Copa del Rey, which is considered the club’s biggest success.
