An analysis of the statistics shows that Barcelona are in excellent form, winning 5 of their last 6 matches and scoring 16 goals. This is even more impressive when you consider that Mallorca have won only one of their last six matches, scoring 7 goals. Despite Mallorca having home ground advantage, Barcelona have consistently dominated past meetings, winning all five of their last matches against Mallorca, often by large margins.
Mallorca matches tend to have fewer goals scored, with an average of 2.8 goals per match, while Barcelona games tend to have a higher rate of 3.7 goals per match. Barcelona's possession and shot statistics in recent matches also indicate stronger attacking play. Despite Mallorca's defensive tenacity, as evidenced by several low-scoring defeats or draws, they are conceding more corners, suggesting their defense may be under more pressure.
Event: Match outcome
Bid: Barcelona victory, CF 1. 55
Why: Barcelona are in excellent form, with 5 wins in their last 6 matches and a clear historical advantage over Mallorca. Barcelona have dominated previous meetings, winning all five of their last matches, and have a high goal percentage, making them more likely to win against a team that has been struggling of late.
Given Barcelona's consistent run of wins, especially against Mallorca, and their current form, this bet offers a good balance between risk and potential return, making it the best bet for this match with decent odds of 1. 55.
Event: Total goals
Bid: Total goals over 2.5, EF 1. 85
Why: On average 3.7 goals are scored in Barcelona matches, and given that Mallorca's defense is not the most reliable, more than 2.5 goals could be scored in this match. Barcelona's attacking power and Mallorca's vulnerability contribute to this forecast.
Event: Corners: Outcomes
Bid: Corners: Victory Barcelona, CF 1. 37
Why: Historically, Barcelona have had better possession and attacking play, leading to more corner kicks. Mallorca, on the other hand, concede more corners, which opens up potential opportunities in this betting market.
Event: Yellow cards: Exodus
Bid: Yellow cards: Victory Mallorca, CF 1. 65
Why: Mallorca have received a significant number of yellow cards in recent matches, indicating a trend that could continue in the match against Barcelona, where Mallorca will try to contain Barcelona's powerful attack.
