"That we have 11 points with all the injury problems we are having, makes me very optimistic for the future," Mallorca manager Luis Plaza said. 
"We have to demand a little more from ourselves up top, bearing in mind that we generate a lot of scoring chances. The defensive statistics are misleading, because we have been poor in three games and good in six others.  
"We are going with the idea of winning and competing, even though we know it is going to be very difficult.”
The last meeting between Valencia and Mallorca in a league match was on 19 January 2021.
Mallorca caused an upset by defeating Valencia 4-1 in a match that was played at their home ground, Iberostar Estadi.
