Mallorca vs Ath Bilbao - Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips - 13.09.2019

Ailing Mallorca are reflecting on their joint-worst start to a La Liga (LL) season this decade. So far in 2019/20, they are averaging a mere 2.67 shots on target per game, and have failed to register a clean sheet (GF 2, GA 4). Of those four goals conceded, three have arrived in the 31st-60th minute period.
With 75% of their current LL goals against being conceded in the second half, Mallorca will do well to avoid a late collapse. However, that seldom happens in LL H2Hs on Mallorca’s turf, with Mallorca teams matching or bettering their half-time result in each of the last seven top-flight encounters with Athletic Bilbao here.
By contrast, Bilbao are enjoying their equal-best start to a LL campaign this decade. The Basque outfit enter their first league fixture as an away favourite this season, and enjoyed a reasonably healthy LL win rate of 44.44% (W4, D1, L4) in that role last season.
However, Bilbao concluded 2018/19 with a paltry 1.71 points per LL game when opening the scoring on the road (W3, D3, L1). An eventual away league goal difference of -7 in the 76th-90+ minute period was primarily to blame.
Players to watch: After registering seven goals at home last season (in La Liga 2), Lago Júnior (MAL) is still seeking his first ever top-flight goal.
In recent weeks, Ander Capa (ATH) has shone, registering an assist in each of his three LL appearances.
Stat attack: The visitors on the day have failed to register a first-half goal in all three of Mallorca’s LL matches this term.
In contradiction, Bilbao have registered three of their four goals this season in the first half.
The half-time scoreline has gone unchanged in the second half in each of the last three LL H2Hs here.
