Sevilla will be looking to maintain their challenge to finish second in the La Liga standings on Wednesday evening, as they host Mallorca. The visitors will also be hoping for maximum points, as they currently sit in the relegation places.
La Liga Preview
Sevilla look set to finish in the Champions League places in La Liga this term, but they may still have their sights firmly set on a second-place finish in the Spanish top-flight. However, that could be an unlikely target, as they currently sit four points behind Barcelona with three games of the season remaining.
They may not yet finish third in the league standings either, as Atletico Madrid are just a single point behind Sevilla coming into this mid-week round of fixtures. Sevilla have failed to win their previous two in La Liga, as they have been held to draws in back-to-back weekends.
Their latest stalemate came on the road against Villarreal, as Jules Kounde scored in the 95th minute to salvage a point. The goal came from just Sevilla’s second shot on target in that fixture.
Mallorca may be seeing their time in La Liga coming towards an end as we close in on the final days of the season. They currently sit 18th in the league standings, and remain two points from safety. Granada are their nearest rivals at this late stage of the season, but they have been in better form.
Mallorca have struggle for momentum throughout the season, as they have won just eight times, and have been beaten on 19 occasions. The Spanish side has also lost three times in their last four fixtures, which includes back-to-back defeats in their previous two. Their latest defeat was a hammering at the hands of Granada, as they were beaten 6-2 at home over the weekend.
Sevilla vs Mallorca Head to Head
Sevilla are unbeaten in their previous three fixtures against Mallorca. However, the latest fixture between the sides saw the points shared in a 1-1 draw in October. However, Sevilla have won each of their last three home games against Mallorca, and have scored eight goals during that period.
Sevilla vs Mallorca Prediction
Mallorca’s heavy defeat against Granada last weekend could have effectively been the moment when their chances of staying in the top flight ended. Sevilla should be more than capable of taking the points in their home fixture against the relegation-threatened side on Wednesday.
