Coming off a loss to Majorca, Valencia is already pretty deep in the hole this season with five points in five matches. Today's match may be difficult.
Mallorca moved up to second in the table after a 2-0 victory over Valencia on Sunday lunchtime. The first chance fell to the visitors, Jonathan Viera shooting just wide, but soon afterwards Víctor Casadesus connected with Hemed's pass to fire in a shot which visiting keeper Diego Alves let through his hands. Aouate had to save from Soldado and Valdez headed against the bar before the break, but immediately after the restart Nsue headed just wide, and a few minutes later Víctor headed a long Aouate clearance on for substitute Arizmendi to make it two. Tino Costa had a couple of chances later on to get one back, but Aouate and his defense held out to leave the Ches down in the bottom half of the table.
