RCD Mallorca is hosting Espanyol at Estadi de Son Moix in round 3 of the Spanish LaLiga. Mallorca has had a great start to the season, and they are undefeated so far. Espanyol is the newcomer to LaLiga, and they haven’t lost any of their first two games, but they also haven’t lost any of their 2 games.

After having a great preseason, Mallorca has had a great LaLiga season so far, and I know it has only been 2 weeks, but they look great. In their first game against Betis, Mallorca has played 1-1, but they have won their second game against Mallorca. Mallorca was the better team in that match with 53% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. We saw a lot of fouls and yellow cards in this game, and a red card in the 66th minute for Alaves. Thanks to that red card, Mallorca has scored a goal in the 80th minute, and they ended up winning this match 0-1. Olivan and Nino have both scored 1 goal each so far this season, while Rodriguez added 2 assists. There are no injuries in Mallorca so far. Mallorca’s main goal was to secure the LaLiga spot for next season, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they will be in the competition for the Conference League if they can stay somewhat consistent.

As the newcomer to LaLiga, Espanyol’s only goal is the secure their spot for next season as well, but they haven’t started that well. Sure, Espanyol hasn’t lost any of their first two games, but they also haven’t won any, and they haven’t scored a single goal. In their game against Villarreal at home last week, Espanyol has had 40% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Espanyol was defending well against a good team in this game, and they got a point out of it. The final score of this match was 0-0. There are no goalscorers for Espanyol right now, but they have conceded plenty of yellow cards in their first two games. Espanyol will need a lot more offense this season if they want to secure their spot in LaLiga, but their defense has been solid so far, and that will go a long way for them.

Both of these teams are the newcomers to LaLiga, but Mallorca is in much better form right now, on both ends. The trends are even in this matchup, but I gotta go with the better team here, and that is Mallorca.
