Real Mallorca 0 - Getafe 1

Mallorca faced a tough task at home to Getafe, who are jostling for a Champion's League spot.

With 14,241 watching, the first half was totally forgettable, with barely a scoring chance between the two sides. Into the second period, and Reina in the Mallorca goal had to save twice from Nigerian Etebo (on loan from Stoke City), as the match tempo increased.

The game was evenly poised when a Mallorca defensive error in the 67th minute allowed Maksimovic to put Getafe ahead; the Serbian midfielder was unmarked and headed in Kenedy's cross.

On 90 minutes, Salva Sevilla, who had been substituted, was shown a red card for protesting, Reina saved from Mata after five minutes added-on, and that was that. Mallorca barely had a sniff all game.

Sorry to say, but the poorest performance I have witnessed at Son Moix this season. Getafe were competent, but could have been easily beatable. An uncompromising bunch, just the sort of team to have given Abdon a run at from the start - he may not be the greatest player but is a handful for the defence ( i.e puts himself about) so could have allowed other players more freedom. Cannot fault the effort of players, but so much of it misguided, Said it before, decision making when on the ball is poor, Baba and Take yesterday were main culprits. Don't remember Getafe keeper having a single shot to save.
