Leganes vs. Real Mallorca Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
24 October 2019
Saturday 26 October
Estadio Municipal de Butarque – La Liga
The last time these two faced each other was back in the 2015-16 Segunda Division, with Mallorca winning 3-0 at home and drawing 0-0 in Madrid.
Following the departure of manager Mauricio Pellegrino in midweek, his assistant Xavi Tamarit will take charge of the team this weekend.
He has no new injury concerns for the visit of Mallorca, with Rodrgio Tarin potentially making a long-awaited return to the first team.
Mallorca boss Vicente Moreno also has a clean bill of health ahead of the weekend, with defender Joan Saster winning his battle to be fit.
Leganes vs. Real Mallorca Preview and Predictions
Leganes have endured a horrendous start to the 2019-20 season, with no wins, and just two points from nine games.
That has left them bottom of the La Liga table, with Pellegrino taking the fall for their struggles so far this season.
Mallorca picked up a shock 1-0 win at home to Real Madrid last time out, making it back to back victories for Moreno’s side.
Their performance against Zinedine Zidane’s side will have boosted confidence ahead of this weekend.
However, the ‘new boss bounce’ is likely to come into play for Leganes, and whilst they are out of form, they should have enough to scrap out a draw – which is priced at 2.4.
Goals have been at a premium for both sides recently, with three in three for Mallorca, and one in three for the hosts.
With Leganes in need of some positivity, they are expected to keep this tight, with an under 2.5 total goals scored bet at 0.9.
A 1-1 draw at 6.5
Leganes need something to build on, and despite that big result against Real Madrid, Mallorca are still finding their feet in the top flight.
Ante Budimir to score anytime at 3.5
Croatian striker Budimir has been a key man for Mallorca so far this season, after making his loan move from Italian side Crotone a permanent one in the summer.
With three goals in 2019-20, he will be Mallorca’s main threat in the capital this weekend.
