Brandon celebrates the equaliser at home to Nastic | Miquel Àngel Borràs


Real Mallorca 2 - Gimnastic Tarragona 2

Never let it be said there isn't fighting spirit at Real Mallorca, as the home side came from two down in the first half to retrieve a draw.

It was all a bit too easy for Nastic in the first half, as Mossa (21 minutes) and Naranjo after 37 gave the visitors a two-nil lead at the break. With boos ringing in their ears after 45 minutes, Mallorca returned and played out what might prove to be one of the more incident-packed halves of the season.

Brandon had a penalty saved six minutes into the second period, following a foul by Campos on Oscar Diaz. Twelve minutes later, a hand ball by Anibal gave Lago Junior a second penalty opportunity: this one was taken. The sending-off of Marí with under ten minutes gave Mallorca an advantage, and Brandon atoned for the earlier missed penalty by equalising.

Mallorca might have grabbed a third in the final minutes, but so might have Nastic because of a poor Aveldaño back pass to Carbrero.
