Why you should back Mallorca

Los Piratas have been a better team at home. They have allowed 10 goals in 13 matches, going 6-3-4 to take 21 of the 32 points they have earned this season. They also had success before hitting their skid, defeating league leader Barcelona 1-0 in February and topping Villarreal 4-2. They should be refreshed coming out of the break, and they split last season’s meetings, taking a 2-0 road victory. Kosovan striker Vedat Muriqi has a team-high 10 goals after scoring five in 16 games last season.  

Mallorca’s strength is preventing shots on net. They have allowed the fourth-fewest in La Liga (83) and are third-best in allowing just 27% of attempts to find the target. Osasuna put just four of their 15 shots on net in the January meeting. Los Piratas rank fifth in the league in blocked shots (90) and lead the league in yellow cards (90), so they can surely frustrate opponents. Serbian goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic has a 75.3 save percentage (seventh in La Liga) and eight clean sheets (T-6).  

Why you should back Osasuna 

Los Rojillos have put up a fight all season in away matches, and they lead La Liga with six road draws. They are 7-2-1 in the past 10 meetings with Mallorca, and they should be able to control possession again. Osasuna held the ball for 63% of the January match and average 6% more possession per game than the hosts. Mallorca are last in the league in shots with 233, almost 70 fewer than Osasuna (301). Los Rojillos had a 15-6 advantage in shots in the last meeting.

Aimar Oroz scored the goal in the January match, and the 21-year-old has three in his first season in the top flight. Ezequiel Avila has a team-high seven goals and is one of five players with two assists. Aitor Fernandez has a 74.5 save percentage and six clean sheets in 14 matches, putting him third in La Liga with a 42.9 clean sheet percentage. Osasuna are up 1-0 on aggregate over Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey semifinals, so they can compete with anyone.
