Real Mallorca 1 - Almeria 0
Match-up between two of the Second Division's bottom sides, and one that Mallorca, having shown some improvement just lately, would have been looking to for three home points to shunt them up the league towards play-off place territory.

The first half, however, suggested that the improvement had been temporary, but Almeria weren't any better. Uninspiring forty-five minutes. Seeking more goal-scoring threat, Brandon replaced Campabadal and, having been on for two minutes, missed the clearest goal opportunity Mallorca had conjured up, until Ros hit the bar and there was no one on the end of Sissoko's follow-up.

With Mallorca playing much better, González then went close for Almeria on 73 minutes, Mallorca having just introduced Bianchi as Ferrer opted for - he hoped - more firepower upfront. And finally it paid off, Brandon heading in with eight minutes left. In the fourth minute of time added on, Wellenreuther did well to deny Chuli.
