MLC vs BAR Dream11 Prediction for Mallorca vs Barcelona La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

MLC vs BAR Dream11: Real Mallorca come into this on the back of a 4-1 hammering at the hands of Granada a couple of weeks ago before the winter break. The Balearic Islanders are due for a long relegation battle this season but they do look well equipped to avoid the drop after a positive start to the campaign. They now come up against a Barcelona side that, under the management of Xavi, are still looking to develop the cohesive and attacking patterns of play that the Catalan club believe is their identity. Barca have improved since Xavi’s appointment but remain slightly disjointed. A low-scoring encounter is expected in this one with the visitors remaining slight favourites.

Who will win today’s MLC vs BAR match?

  • Barcelona claimed a pretty impressive away point last time out, drawing with Sevilla thanks to Ronald Araujo’s equaliser. Xavi Hernandez’s men deserved more, but couldn’t quite find a winner.
  • Before that, the Blaugrana saw off Elche with a 3-2 win despite blowing a two-goal lead, and they head into this one unbeaten in three and sitting in seventh place, now just two points off the top four.
  • This one is a tough one to call given all the Covid absentees for Barca, but given Mallorca will also be a little understrength, it may well wind up a narrow away win.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Barcelona in this clash is 2.07 as per bet365.
