Tip Mallorca - Athletic Bilbao
Real Mallorca started their campaign with a win over Eibar but two straight losses mean they are now stuck in the bottom half of the league and added to their friendly match loss, it is now three matches without a win or even scoring a goal. This is a run they will be looking to bring to an end this weekend. With just five wins in their last 15 La Liga matches, Mallorca walk to this match as firm underdogs and the fact that they have managed just three clean sheets in the run further complicates their situation. However, a plus for them is that they have scored in 11 of those 15 matches. It home, in La Liga, it is not any better for them, they have failed to win 13 of their last 18 matches. They face an Athletic Club side that has picked eight wins in the last 15 matches in La Liga and who have dropped just two points in the opening three matches in La Liga. Athletic Club have lost just one of their last five La Liga matches and failed to score in just four of the last 15. They have however struggled away from home, with just four wins in the last 23 La Liga away matches. Athletic Club have a fine run over Mallorca; they are unbeaten in six matches in this fixture and each of the last five ended in wins for Athletic Club, who have also kept four clean sheets in the last five meetings.
