AD Alcorcón will be wanting a better result here following a 1-0 La Liga 2 defeat last time out to Espanyol.
In that match, AD Alcorcón managed 32% possession and 8 shots on goal with 3 on target. Espanyol got 13 shots at goal with 5 on target. Raúl de Tomas (75') was the scorer for Espanyol.
A recurring characteristic of recent AD Alcorcón games is the number of nil scores.
From their prior six clashes before this one, in as many as 6 of them a bet on both teams scoring would have lost.
In the game prior to this, Mallorca drew 0-0 in the La Liga 2 match with Albacete.
In that game, Mallorca managed 51% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 9 on target.
Fixtures featuring Mallorca have ended up being rather mundane affairs recently with a lack of incisiveness becoming customary. During their past half dozen clashes, a combined goal total of 4 has been yielded between both them and their opponents at an average goals per match of 0.67. Still, time will tell whether that trend will be maintained in this next game or not.
Ahead of this meeting, Mallorca haven’t been defeated in their previous 4 away league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 22/08/2015, there is nothing to separate the two clubs with AD Alcorcón winning 3 of those games, Mallorca 3 and 0 being draws in regulation time.
An aggregate of 8 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 4 of them from Los Alfareros and 4 created by Los Bermellones. That is an average goals per game value of 1.33.
Team News: AD Alcorcón
AD Alcorcón boss Baldomero Mere will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Mallorca
Thanks to a largely healthy group, there’s just the lone fitness worry for the Mallorca gaffer Luis García to be concerned with. Enzo Lombardo (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be in action.
We’re inclined to think that Mallorca and AD Alcorcón could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We therefore see a very close game with a 1-1 score draw when all is said and done.
