Cordoba Goes for Back to Back Road Wins in MallorcaPublished May 29, 2016 by Florin P
One point might not be enough for Mallorca to stay afloat (1:00 p.m UK Time).
Cordoba managed to win the last match on the road by scoring three goals in the second half and are hoping for a repeat against Mallorca. The hosts will give them a run for their money, because they are still trying to stave off the specter of relegation. They’ve claimed three precious points in the last round and need to double down on that result, to stay for at least one year in the Spanish second division.
High Expectations from Andone
Cordoba scored three unanswered goals on the road against Mirandes and the most impressive part is that they managed to do so without their most prolific goalscorer contributing. Andone is by far the most successful striker in Liga Adelante, but despite playing for almost the entire match, he was unable to find his way to the goal. The visitors count on him to defeat Mallorca and grant them the needed three points.
Defensively, Cordoba is looking better than ever, but can’t afford to rely on its backline in this fixture. They are still playing catch-up with the top six teams and they need to make sure they are within the promotion area before the last round comes.
Busy Schedule for Mallorca
Two weeks ago, Mallorca looked extremely vulnerable but managed to win both home games by the odd goal. In the last match they will play against Valladolid and should be able to claim victory, because the visitors are not motivated. However, relying on the outcome of that match would be dangerous, now that Pontferradina have tied them for the 17th place.
Punters might be tempted to go for the high odds offered by bet365 Sports on Córdoba to win on the road. There’s nothing wrong about trusting the visitors, but you’d enjoy the same odds of 6/5 if you bet on more than 2.5 goals to be scored.
