Alavés 2 - Real Mallorca 0

Mallorca in the bottom three and Alavés in seventeenth, so it was like an early-season six-pointer, and it was the home side which took the points.

Budimir hit the woodwork for the visitors on ten minutes, which was as good as it got for Mallorca. Not that Alavés were much better in what was an unremarkable game. The goal action came in the final fifteen minutes, Lucas Pérez scoring from the penalty spot following a VAR decision that went against Lago Junior. With five minutes remaining, Reina, having done well to keep out a second from Lucas Pérez, was beaten by Joselu.

One win from seven for Mallorca so far this season, and the negative goal difference is beginning to mount.

The whole team looks second best. Too often second in the tackle, too often muscled out of it by much more "streetwise"opponents. Decision making when they have the ball is poor, and a lack of ideas especially in and around opponents penalty box. Like Monro I applaud the several team members who are still doing their best in La Primera having fought their way up from Segunda B, they deserve support, but the whole squad seems to be lacking a premier division approach.
