Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mallorca will be aiming to move one step closer to securing automatic promotion when they take on Alcorcon in the La Liga 2 round 39. Los Bermellones are six points clear of third-place Almeria, meaning that a win would give fans a big reason for celebration. Despite failing to find the net in the previous seven league fixtures, Senegal attacker Amath Ndiaye will pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, are only one point clear of the relegation zone. Los Alfareros are eyeing their third consecutive win on the road, but beating los Bermellones in Palma de Mallorca is easier said than done. Mallorca have turned their home ground into a real fortress, and we predict that the promotion-chasing hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. In the first half of the season los Bermellones defeated los Alfareros 2-0.
