Team News

  • A 90th minute strike from Nelson Valdez gave Los Che all three points last time out. The forward had not long entered the pitch in what proved to be an inspired substitution by Ernesto Valverde.
  • The striker may be handed a start as a reward, as Valverde looks to rotate his squad, and Roberto Soldado might be given a much needed rest.
  • David Albeda will be missing following an accumulation of yellow cards, so Daniel Parejo will likely fill in as he did against Paris Saint Germain.
  • Mallorca gained their first point under Gregorio Manzano last time out with an injury time leveller from on-loan Brazilian defender Geromel.
  • Dudu Aouate surprisingly recovered in time to play in goal, making his 21st appearance of the season, though João Victor and Pedro Bigas remain on the treatment table.
  • Fernando Tissone and Tomer Hemed will likely start having been given some game time last weekend.


  • Three of the last six meetings between the sides have been unexpectedly won by Los Bermellones, with 19 goals scored between the two.
  • Both clubs are under new management having had poor opening periods, though it's fair to say that Valverde has had more time to teach the players his methods.
  • Valencia will aim to bounce back quickly following the disappointment against PSG.
