Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Mallorca win

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

Looking to sign off the 2020/21 campaign with a real flurry on Sunday night, Mallorca will make the trip to the Estadio El Toralín when they face off against Ponferradina.

Starting with the hosts, while Ponferradina might have managed to wrap up a top-half finish with time to spare this year, they have endured a worrying end to the 2020/21 campaign. Showing some real signs of fatigue and a side really limping their way over the finish line, the El Bierzo-based outfit have long since seen any chance of a play-off charge go up in smoke. Last seen earlier in the week when putting in another sluggish display, La Ponfe were hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat away at Sabadell and they really failed to bounce back from that 4-1 drumming at the hands of Espanyol on May 18th. Facing what should be another stern test on Sunday night, Head Coach Bolo has seen his side lose four of their last five Segunda matchups and they have also lost back-to-back fixtures at the Estadio El Toralín for the first time this season.

As for the visitors, while Ponferradina might be enduring a torrid end to the year, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Mallorca. Enjoying what has been a hugely successful campaign at the Visit Mallorca Estadi, Luis García Plaza’s side have secured an immediate La Liga return in some style. Looking to simply end the 2020/21 campaign with a real flurry on Sunday night, The Vermilions were last seen seven days ago landing a deserved 2-1 victory against Real Zaragoza on home soil. Continuing to impress since opening May, it should be noted that Mallorca have mustered themselves 13 points from their last five Segunda contests. Picking up a 3-0 romp when they faced off against Sunday’s hosts back in November and winning each of their last four straight meetings against La Ponfe, we’re backing a similar outcome this weekend.
