Getafe visit RCD Mallorca at the Visit Mallorca Estadi on November 28, the latter looking to remove themselves from the red zone. The two clubs’ position on the table could be a red herring as their respective forms are at opposite ends.
Real Mallorca are at 13th on the table with 15 points. They lost their last match, 1-3, which was against Rayo Vallecano. They only have had four points in their last five La Liga matches, having won only once since September.
Meanwhile, Getafe CF have nine points in 14 matches, just ahead of Levante that is at last place. They are on an upswing after losing their first seven La Liga fixtures, all their points coming in from the month of October to the present. The last time they were on the pitch, they trounced Cádiz, 4-0.
Historically, both teams are as even as they can get. Either side has 11 wins off each other, as well as six draws. The last time they met was back in the 2019-20 season with Getafe winning two, 4-2 and 1-0, and one ending in a 0-0 draw.
Combined, they average three goals in their meetings. Therefore, it is no surprise that they trend over 2.5 goals. In their respective last six matches, they average an identical 1.17 goals scored. In 15 matches at home against Getafe, Mallorca have won eight and drawn three.
The most common final score for two squads has been 1-0 with ten instances, Mallorca having seven of those. The Azulones’ scorelines are more spread out, with 2-1 coming up the most often.

Given their recent form, it is tempting to give this to Getafe. However, the principle of averages state that Mallorca are due for a win, especially since they are playing at home. This apprehension is the same for their over/under, as is not every day there will be a goalfest with two bottom of the table clubs on the offing.
