Sevilla and Real Mallorca will lock horns with each other in La Liga next week. The match between Quique Sánchez Flores’s side and Javier Aguirre’s team will be held at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán and is scheduled to kick off at 8 pm UK time next Monday.

Sevilla

Sevilla are one of the biggest clubs in Spain and have been hugely successful in Europe as well. They have been regulars in major European competitions, such as the UEFA Champions League, and are a well-known team around the world.

However, Sevilla have had a torrid campaign. Although things have improve for the Andalucian club in recent weeks, for months there was the doubt that they could actually get relegated to the Segunda Division at the end of the season. Sevilla are 13th in the La Liga table at the moment with 34 points from 31 matches, as many as nine points above the relegation zone.

Sevilla will head into the La Liga match against Real Mallorca next week on the back of a 2-0 victory over Las Palmas away from home in the league. It came after a 1-0 victory over Getafe on the road in La Liga which followed a 2-1 defeat to Celta de Vigo at home in the league.

Team News:

Sevilla are likely up line up in a 5-3-2 formation against Real Mallorca. Orjan Nyland will be in goal for the home team. Lucas Ocampos, Loic Bade, Sergio Ramos, Enrique Salas and Adria Pedrosa will be in defence. Boubakary Soumare, Nemanja Gudelj and Oliver Torres will be the three midfielders. Isaac Romero and Youssef En-Nesyri will lead the line for the home team.

Real Mallorca

Real Mallorca are an established club in La Liga. Although they do not tend to compete for the European places, they are not always involved in the relegation fight either. Mallorca finished a respectable ninth last season.

Things, though, have not been great for Mallorca this season. Javier Aguirre’s side are as low as 16th in the La Liga table at the moment with  31 points from 31 matches. They are only six points above the bottom three and could still go down to the second tier of Spanish football at the end of the season.

Mallorca will head into the La Liga match against Sevilla next week on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid at home in La Liga. It came after a defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey which followed a goalless draw with Valencia on the road in the league.

Team News:

Real Mallorca are likely to line up in a 5-4-1 formation against Sevilla. Predrag Rajkovic will be in goal for the visiting team and will have Pablo Maffeo, Giovanni Gonzalez, Antonio Raillo, Matija Nastasic and Toni Lato in front of him in goal. Antonio Sanchez, Manu Morianes, Samu Costa and Dani Rodriguez will be in the midfield. Vedat Muriqi will lead the line for the visiting team.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Sevilla have won 3 of their last 6 La Liga matches.
  • Sevilla have scored 39 goals in 31 La Liga matches this season.
  • Sevilla have conceded 44 goals in 31 La Liga matches this season.
  • Real Mallorca have lost 2 and won 2 of their last 6 La Liga games.
  • Real Mallorca have scored 25 goals in 31 La Liga games this campaign.

Conclusion

Both Sevilla and Real Mallorca are having a poor season, and neither score a lot of goals. Playing at home will give Sevilla an advantage, and they also have a better team. However, it is very likely that this particular La Liga match will end in a draw.
