Real Oviedo 1 - Real Mallorca 1

A distinct improvement from Mallorca. A goal in the seventh minute by Ros was reward for coming well out of the starting blocks, Bianchi then having an effort saved in the 22nd minute. Oviedo became more of a threat, equalising before half-time through Toché. Pretty even second half, without either side creating real opportunities.

Ih the dire circumstances in which they and coach Ferrer found themselves, an away point may ease the pressure a little. A home fixture next Sunday against struggling Llagostera - bottom as a result of Mallorca's draw and playing top-six side Elche later on - will be a fixture of some importance.
