Valencia Vs Mallorca Highlights:Valencia hosted Mallorca at the Mestalla stadium and claimed a 2-0 triumph over the relegation zone club.
While Valencia edge their way into the top 5 clubs of La Liga it’s a completely different story for Mallorca as they battle for their life in the bottom 2 spots with only 18 points being collected so far.
Diego Alves had to be at his best from the early minutes of the encounter when he denied Alejandro Alfaro from scoring and some moments later doing another save but this time blocking an effort from the Mexican Giovani Dos Santos.
Things got ugly for Valencia when they were forced to play with 10 players as Tino Costa was sent off the pitch with a red card after making a nasty foul on Jose Nune and leaving his club with a numerical disadvantage for the majority of the campaign.
Even with the dismissal of Tino Costa, Valencia still managed to open the score when Sergio Canales whipped in a corner and Ricardo Costa arrived to head it into the net of Dudu Aouate.
Roberto Soldado sealed the match off for his side when he extended the lead to 2 goals at the 81st minute which was more than enough to claim all 3 points from this encounter.
