Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano take on each other in a highly-anticipated showdown at Visit Mallorca Estadi. Los Bermellones aim to make amends for the unsuccessful La Liga campaign, but the game against Rayo will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Anyhow, we predict that Mallorca will find the net in Sunday’s clash as they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. It has to be noted that the club chiefs have yet to reinforce the club in the summer transfer window.
Cucho Hernandez, who joined Championship club Watford, is going to be sorely missed in the season opener. The capital club, on the other hand, have big ambitions for the 2020/21 season as they appointed Andoni Iraola as the new boss. Given Rayo’s attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered.
