Mallorca vs Villarreal prediction
RCD Mallorca will have their 2023/24 La Liga home opener against Villarreal this Friday. They got off this season’s campaign with a 1-1 draw at Estadio de Gran Canaria as they faced off in an intense match with Las Palmas – their first meeting at this level in 20 years. Los Rojillos were staring at a loss after conceding a penalty to the hosts but managed to snatch a point when Antonio Raíllo headed home Darder’s swinging corner in the 70th minute, as the two substitutes combined from the bench to level the scores and they held on for the draw.
After a fairly successful campaign that saw them finish an impressive 5th in the top flight last season, Villarreal got off to a false start as they lost their opener at home to Real Betis. The Yellow Submarine came to rue missed chances in the game as Betis scored a last-gasp winner deep into stoppage time as they lost on the opening day of the season for the first time in five years.
Delving deep into our Mallorca v Villarreal predictions, we can expect a hard-fought encounter with both teams keen to keep things tight. Mallorca have looked solid in their pre-season friendlies but the visitors have the quality within their rank and file which sets us up for a close game that is likely to end in a stalemate.

Our Mallorca vs Villarreal predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Full-time Draw
There is so much to play for both of these teams. Mallorca will be keen to hold home serve in their opening home game of the season while Villarreal are desperate to put points on the board after they dropped their own home opener last weekend. The home team have been a hard nut to crack, losing just once in their last ten games overall. They have also been draw experts lately with 4 draws in their last 5 matches. Given the stakes at play here, we are backing this game to end in a draw at full-time with best prices for this at 1xBet!

Prediction 2: 1st Half Under 1.5 Goals
The 4-2 win by Mallorca last time they met looks like an exception to the rule. Goals have been hard to come by in this fixture with an average of just 2.60 in their last 10 meetings. With both teams looking at this game to ignite their start to the season, we can expect both teams to dig in to start the game. In their last 8 meetings at the Visit Mallorca Estadi (Palma de Mallorca), only 2 have had more than a goal in the opening half. As a result, we expect this to replicate here with the best odds for 1st Half Under 1.5 Goals available at Melbet.
