Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mallorca and Tenerife go head to head at Visit Mallorca Estadi in what is expected to be a very exciting match. Los Bermellones desperately needed a win against Sabadell, and they managed to get one thanks to Daniel Rodriguez’s late goal. Mallorca are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and they should take advantage of Tenerife’s current form.
Los Blanquiazules kicked off the new Segunda Division campaign with a 2-0 win over Malaga, but they failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Alcorcon (0-2) and Mirandes (1-2). Seeing that Mallorca are eyeing promotion to the Spanish top flight, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. Both Bermejo Escribano and Javi Alonso are banned for the visitors, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on los Bermellones.
Highlighted Player (Joan Sastre):
Joan Sastre, who started his youth career at Mallorca back in 2009, has been playing for los Bermellones ever since. Sastre made his senior debut with Mallorca in a 1-0 win over Peralada on August 20, 2017 and he scored his first ever goal for the islanders in a 1-1 draw with Badalona on December 10, 2017.
The pacey right back was born in Porreres, Spain on April 30, 1997 and it has to be noted that he has two caps with la Roja U19 team. Joan Sastre has established himself as a first-team regular at Mallorca, with the defender making 29 appearances in the Segunda Division last term.
The Spaniard was deployed in the starting line-up for the decider against Deportivo La Coruna where Mallorca emerged triumphant (3-0) and secured promotion to La Liga. Joan Sastre’s contract with los Bermellones should expire on June 30, 2023. His preferred foot is right.
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.
