MLC vs VAL Dream11: Having earned promotion to La Liga in the summer, Real Mallorca are finding the transition hard to manage, as they continue to struggle to cope with the demand and intensity of playing at the top-tier. Not only they are 18th going into this game, but they also lost five times in the last six league games. To make matter worse, Eibar, their direct rivals in this relegation scuffle, defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 and moved seven points clear of the drop zone. Of course, that gap could be trimmed down to four if Mallorca have their own “Eibar” moment against a big team and beat Valencia on Sunday.
But as they say, the transition of words to actual action takes sustained efforts, and Mallorca have to be at the top of their game if they are to get even a point of this game, for the Los Che are one of the hottest teams in La Liga on current form, and are the clear cut favourites to win the match.
Host: Real Mallorca

What to expect?
You can't be sure about anything unless you are gifted with some psychic abilities. Of course, Mallorca can win, it's not impossible. But the common sense has to prevail. The form is a measuring stick and then factor in the current league position, you know Valencia are likely to win the game.
But don't expect the visitors to rain down their attacking instincts on the visitors. A close win!
Believe it or not, Mallorca have failed to score in nine of 19 league games this season. That's almost half the total number of games. But Valencia have kept only two clean sheets in the last 11 league games, that suggests this game could end up 1-1, or 0-1 for the Los Che.
So have at least three defenders from Valencia and Mallorca's in-form right wing-back, Fran Gamez.
