Real Murcia vs Barcelona
Date: 13 June 2020, Saturday
Kick off at 21:00 UK/22:00 CET
Venue: the Estadio de Son Moix (Palma de Mallorca).
La Liga leaders Barcelona resume the defence of their title on Saturday evening, with Quique Setien’s side visiting relegation threatened Mallorca.
The Blaugrana reclaimed top spot in the division on the final weekend before the league was suspended by beating Real Sociedad having lost to Real Madrid the week before.
Barca’s lead over Zinedine Zidane’s men is just two points and they know they can afford precious few slip-ups in the final stretch of the season.
Mallorca vs Barcelona Prediction
From the home match in 2009, Mallorca has never defeated the visitors in any clash until now. With their league position and current form, the home team is likely not to change that streak. Besides, the new trio in Barca is finding their sync in the matches.
Having a reliable player like Messi has helped Barcelona in many games. Since Mallorca hasn’t established a vigorous defense at home so far, we can expect Lionel Messi to score in the clash.
The match will probably be a high-scoring affair and hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals at 1.44 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters.
The away win in full-time is termed at low odds and the tip for Barcelona to win with a -1 handicap will be a safe bet at 1.75 odds to yield decent returns for the punters.
