Although the final was not played in La Cartuja but at the Elche CF (Martínez Valero) sports facility, this final is a very familiar sight for Mallorca. The excitement of winning the second Copa del Rey and the third top flight title is quite high. It must be remembered that the Mallorcan team also won the Supercup trophy in 1998.

Whatever Mallorca’s rival may be, winning the number 2 cup is very difficult

Next Thursday, February 29th, the decisive game against the Balearic club’s rivals in the cup final will take place. Whatever the opponent will be in La Cartuja, Javier Aguirre knows it will be quite difficult for him. And the second team with the most titles in this competition (Athletic) will face the fourth in this table (Atlético).

If history does not intimidate RCD Mallorca, they must consider the present. The Basque club is in fifth place, while the Colchonero team is in fourth place in LaLiga EA Sports. The Copa del Rey 2023-24 final will take place on April 6 at the legendary La Cartuja stadium. The Balearic club has just over a month to prepare for the game, but first they need to know their rival.
