Real Mallorca 1 - Real Betis 1
Back in the big time of La Liga Primera, Mallorca welcomed Betis - coached by Manuel Pellegrini - on a hot Saturday evening (35C around kick-off).
On 24 minutes, the return to the top flight was celebrated by full-back Brian Oliván's strike set up by Dani Rodríguez.
Nine minutes into the second period, and a double substitution by Betis was followed by an equaliser with an assist from a header from one of the subs - Juanmi (Juan Miguel Jiménez); it had to go down as an own goal by Mallorca keeper Manolo Reina. Nabil Fekir, whose free-kick led to the goal, went close soon after, shooting into the side netting. Betis veteran Joaquín, he's now 40, banged one just over in added time, but a draw it was, which was probably a fair result - Mallorca were the better side in the first half, and Betis in the second.
Attendance: 6,279 - below the 8,775 capacity set by the Balearic government.
