Fuenlabrada positively surprised last time on the road to Leganes when they come with a 0:2 victory despite being considered as an underdog by the bookie’s side.
They had the ball possession disadvantage during the whole clash but used their small number of chances with high efficiency, scoring two during the second part over Cristobal and Pulido, while being able to keep their sheet clean, as the home side didn’t stand out too much in the offense.
They did great on counters, as Fuenlabrada is at the 13th spot on the table, at a safe distance from the danger zone, but not in a position to compete for higher playoff places, at least for now.
The home side misses defender Valentin (13/0), plus midfielders Aguado (12/0) and Feuilassier (29/1) and forwards Salvador (22/2), Kante (27/2) and Gassama (8/5).
Mallorca, on the other hand, failed to meet the expectations in their last clash at home against Real Oviedo, as they come with a 0:0 draw, having an obvious lack of creativity with the ball.
They were in control from the start, but as the match moved towards the end, it was becoming clear that the hosts will not be in a position to score, so in the end, a draw wasn’t that surprising considering their overall impression.
Mallorca occupies second place in the general rankings, having the same amount of points as the leaders from Espanyol.
The guests can’t count on defender Valjent (24/1), forwards Lago Junior (19/2) and Trajkovski (7/0) being with international teams. Forward Ndiaye (22/8) is absent too. Doubtful is midfielder de Galarreta (22/0).
Slightly higher motive too
As we can see from their current situation on the table and their overall impression this season, it would be safe to say that Mallorca is a team that is much closer to victory here. Even though they are missing a couple of players, so does the hosts, Mallorca still has needed individual quality to get the three-pointer here. Or be way closer at least.
