Mallorca to Win
Both Mallorca and Alaves are trying to survive the season, with Mallorca being ahead by four points and barely outside of the relegation zone. So, this is a pretty important game for both teams.
With that in mind, we are expecting a close and hard-fought duel. However, we can also see Mallorca winning this game, especially since they are playing at home where their last match was a win over Atletico Madrid.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
The last five head-to-head duels between Mallorca and Alaves have all gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case once again on Tuesday.
After all, it's a crucial game for both teams and we expect them to enter it with additional caution and focus on not conceding a goal, so we would be surprised to see three or more goals in this one.

Mallorca vs Alaves – Team news, latest form, and possible lineups
This promises to be a very exciting game, so let's take a more detailed look at both teams before their meeting:
The team from Palma de Mallorca has been in very poor form recently and they've struggled to get any points on the board. In fact, Mallorca lost eight of their last nine matches in La Liga. Even more surprising is the fact that their only win was over the reigning champions Atletico Madrid. In any case, the team is one of the candidates for relegation with six games left in the season.
Meanwhile, Mallorca is dealing with some injury problems as well with Dominik Greif, Salva Sevilla, Inigo Ruiz de Galarreta, and Aleksandar Sedlar all out of the next game, while Jaume Costa is questionable.
Mallorca predicted lineup:
Rico – Maffeo, Valjent, Raillo, Olivan, Gonzalez – Ndiaye, Sanchez, Baba, Kubo – Muriqi
A win over Rayo Vallecano this weekend keeps Alaves alive at the moment, although the team is still sitting in the last place in the standings. However, they are now just four points behind Mallorca and a win in their upcoming duel would put Alaves in a much better position ahead of the remainder of the season.
When it comes to team news, Alaves will be without Javi Lopez and Pere Pons, who are injured at the moment. However, the rest of the team is healthy and available.
Alaves predicted lineup:
Pacheco – Tenaglia, Laguardia, Lejeune, Navarro – M. Garcia, Escalante, Loum, Rioja – Mendez, Joselu
