La Liga preview: Mallorca - Sevilla

Mallorca: Aouate;Ramis, Nunes, Kevin, Pablo Lopez,Marti; Tejera,Ienaga,De Guzman; Gonzalo Castro,Nsue. Mallorca

Sevilla: Varas; Escudé, Fazio,Alexis, Caceres; Navas, Rakitic, Medel,  Perotti; Negredo, Kone.

  • Sevilla have scored only eight points out of a possible 24 on road. Even more surprisingly, despite scoring only six points out of last 15, they have the 6th best away record in last five away games. This shows that La Liga teams play best at their homes.
  • Los nervionenses have won their last two league games: they have not managed three wins in a row this season.
  • Since returning to the top flight, Sevilla are unbeaten in their last 9 visits to Mallorca. They have managed five wins and four draws in this time.
  • The Andalucians tend to lose focus in the second half as the statistics show. They have conceded 64% of their goals in second half, with 25% coming in last 15 minutes of the games.
  • After an indifferent start to their season, the Andalucians are in driver’s seat for the European spots, with a very good chance to make it to Champions league. Although, with Kanoute out with an injury, their task has become slightly more difficult.
  • Mallorca are slow starters and tend to lose steam quickly. They have scored the joint-fewest goals in the last 15 minutes of league games this season (five, along with Hercules) and have scored only 4 goals in the first 15 minutes.
  • The islanders have failed to score in 12 games this season.
  • Their top scoring Cameroonian striker Webo, who has found the back of the net 7 times this season, is suspended along with midfielder Michael Perriera.
  • However Michael Laudrup's troops are unbeaten without  Webo this season, winning one and drawing two league games in his absence.



November 21, 2010: Sevilla 1-2 Mallorca

Last time, Pierre Webo had struck a last-minute winner to help Real Mallorca consign former coach Gregorio Manzano and his Sevilla side to a 2-1 defeat at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Sevilla looked to have salvaged a point when Luis Fabiano netted in the 88th, but Webo scored in the 90th minute to snatch all 3 points for the islanders.

Players to Watch

With Webo and Micheal Perriera suspended, the onus falls on Gonzalo Castro to carry his team’s weight on his shoulders. He is the second highest scorer and assist provider after Webo and Laudrup would want him to take the centre stage both for him and Mallorca.

Jesús Navas González

Jesus Navas was a constant thorn in the last match against Zaragoza and he provided the assist for the opener. He will have to provide more of those to counter his team’s strikers’ erratic performances. The final result depends a lot on his performance.


Sevilla are definitely the in-form side at moment and they have picked up some valuable points against Barcelona and Valencia. Traditionally, they have always done well at Mallorca's home and are yet to be defeated at Iberostar Estadi. The only worrisome aspect is their strikers' profligacy in front of goal. This has to be rectified, if their slim hopes of Champions league are to be kept alive.
