Mallorca's participation in the UEFA cup ended when they were defeated for the second time in a fortnight by Slovan Liberec. Needing to win by at least two clear goals, Sergio Kresic put out a side with three forwards, with Biagini lining up alongside Luque and Eto'o. However the Czech side showed that their victory over Celta in the last round was not just a fluke, producing better football throughout to leave the Balearic Island side with no chance of qualifying. In the first minute they gave a first warning, Leo Franco having to produce his best to keep out a shot from Kolousek, and Mallorca didn't trouble Kinsky until just before half time, when Biagini's shot caught the keeper out after deflecting off a defender.
Logic prevailed though when Baffour scored for the visitors on a counterattack in the second half after Mallorca gave the ball away in midfield, and Stajner added another a few minutes later after a mix up between Leo Franco and Vicente let him through. Sergio Kresic had replaced Paunovic and Luque with Novo and Carlos after the first goal, and Carlos forced a penalty with ten minutes left on the clock which Eto'o converted. But by then they needed four more to go through, and that was totally impossible. Slovan go through to the last sixteen on merit, and Mallorca end another disappointing campaign in European.
