DID YOU KNOW?
 
  • The last eight times Valencia have taken three points in Mallorca, they have done so by keeping a clean sheet.
  • Valencia have taken a staggering 13 points from their last five away trips.
  • Valencia's home and away form this season are almost identical, picking up 28 of their 51 points at home, and the remaining 23 on the road, just a five point difference.
  • Usually a strong side at home, Mallorca have scored just one goal in their last three games at the Iberostar Stadium.
  • They have won every home game in which they have been able to score however.
  • Mallorca were also the only side who were able to beat Valencia in the Mestalla in the first half of the season.
  • Whilst slipping up against smaller clubs on an all too regular basis, Los Bermellones have been able to beat Sevilla and of course Valencia this season, and have taken a point each from Barcelona and Real Madrid.
  • Mallorca have dropped 14 points at home so far this season, more than they did in the entire of last season.
  • The Islanders have gathered the same number of points from home matches as Valencia have on away trips, 23, and have lost more games than they have drawn in Palma.



LAST MEETING

  October 23, 2010: Valencia 1 - 2 Mallorca

Mallorca defeated Valencia at the Mestalla, the first team to do so this season, thanks to a Gonzalo Castro brace. Roberto Soldado was on target for the home side.

Players to watch

Nsue

Position: Attacker

Nsue has been in great form recently, and you can expect this to continue against Valencia. He has been Mallorca's main threat for some time now, and can create and score goals with equal gusto.

É. Banega

Position: Midfielder

Games: 0

The Argentine playmaker has been targeted by some of the biggest clubs in Europe, and with good reason. Having lost Silva and Villa in the summer, holding onto Banega has been one of the saving graces of Valencia's season.

Editor's Prediction

Valencia are in good form lately, and that should be enough to see them past Mallorca, who have not looked nearly as strong at home this season as they have in recent years.
