Lugo 3 - Real Mallorca 1

So, after all the talk of a goal drought, what did Mallorca do? Score after five minutes, Brandon converting a Culio centre. But there was little time for celebration, Lugo's Pita equalising nine minutes later, his provider - Alfonso - putting Joselu through in a counter attack on 27 minutes to put the Galician side two-one up. Still, Mallorca were bright enough, though being bright hasn't been the problem; scoring has been.

Coach Vazquez went against his own tradition and introduced the more offence-minded Dalmau with fifteen minutes of the second half gone. Not that it made much difference, and the league's top scorers punished the supposedly sound Mallorca defence with a second Joselu strike, this time from a corner, with quarter of an hour left.

Lago Junior went close to pulling one back as full-time approached, but three-one it remained. Lugo go top. Mallorca stay among the also-rans in the bottom four.
