Mallorca finished in 16th place in the La Liga standings last season and were dangerously close to the relegation zone towards the end of their campaign. The away side edged Ibiza to a penalty shootout victory last week and will need to be more decisive in this match.

Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, secured an eighth-place finish in the league table last season and narrowly missed out on a European spot. The Basque giants were held to a 1-1 draw by Deportivo Alaves in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
