Betting tips for Villarreal VS Mallorca 16.06.2020
After three days without scoring, Villarreal returned to the victorious path, defeating Celta 1-0 in Balaídos: four of their last five LaLiga (LL) matches have been decided by a margin of one goal. Likewise, the yellow team has kept its goal unbeaten during the first half in four of the last five days.
Playing at home, Villarreal usually open the scoring: they have done so in nine (G6, E2, P1) of their 13 LL matches at the Estadio de la Cerámica this season. Thanks to this, the Castellón squad has been behind the break in only one of those 13 matches (break: G5, E7, P1).
With a single victory in their 13 league outings not being a favorite this season (G1, E2, P10), Mallorca will seek to end an eight game streak without winning in Villarreal's stronghold (E2, P6). In each of their last five visits to the yellow team, the vermilions fitted first, doing so before the 15th minute in the last two.
Mallorca also aims to link two wins as a visitor for the first time in the current championship. Before their 2-1 victory over Eibar on matchday 27, the Balearic team had linked a terrible series of 17 outings without winning in the top flight (E3, P14). That meeting in Ipurua was also his first at home in the current LL campaign in which he reached the break ahead (break: G1, E6, P6).
Players to watch: Villarreal's top scorer in LL 2019-20, Gerard Moreno, has scored eight of his 11 goals either before the 15th min or after the 75th. In Mallorca, Ante Budimir has signed three doubles in the six games of LL where he has seen the door this season.
Statistics to consider: The vast majority (76.74%) of the goals scored in Villarreal's LL matches at home have come in the second half.
Mallorca have not yet set their goal to zero away from home in the current championship.
In each of the last five clashes between these clubs in the Villarreal fiefdom, the result at halftime has reflected the distribution of final points.
