Mallorcanism appeals to the miracle of 2005

The qualifying situation in 2005 was as complicated as the current one but Mallorca managed to save. In that 2004-2005 campaign, with Héctor Cúper in his second stage on the island, very different from the first, the vermilions were ten points from the permanence in day 32, and the team's reaction in the last six games is still remembered with a balance of four wins and two draws without losing a game again.

Mallorca had to catch up on the table to a Levante who promised them happy when its then president Pedro Villarroel publicly stated: “I am sorry for my friend Mateo Alemany (then president of Mallorca) but Mallorca is a second division team”, very daring statements in the absence of four days and four points, a distance that the islanders had already reduced in two days.

Four days from the end, as now, and four points from salvation, the Majorcan team defeated Athletic in Palma and beat Depor in Riazor, tied in Pamplona and tied at home on the last day against Betis, results that they saved Mallorca and condemned Levante that he never won a game again.

Curiously, Levante will be Mallorca's next rival at Visit Mallorca Estadi this Thursday.
