Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Barcelona -320
This one’s really a no-brainer. Barcelona are the clear favorites for a reason as they sit in second place with 16 points, just two points behind the league leaders Real Madrid. After starting the season off with a scoreless draw against Rayo Vallecano, Barcelona have won each of their last five matches since then, boasting a plus-17 goal differential after outscoring their opponents 18-1 overall.
They’re led by Robert Lewandowski, who has scored eight goals on the season while adding two assists. Lewy has also notched three goals in Champions League play, scoring a hat trick and helping lift his side to a 5-1 victory over Viktoria Plzen in UCL Matchday 1.
Mallorca sit in 10th place at the moment, though they’re just three points out of sixth as the middle of the table is still relatively tight this early in the season. They’re led by Vedat Muriqi, who has three goals on the season, while Kang-In Lee has added three assists for the squad so far.
Barcelona shouldn’t have any trouble taking all three points on the road in this contest.
