Real Mallorca, playing at home in the match to mark one hundred years to the day since the club was formally founded, took advantage of visiting Oviedo being reduced to ten men to record a win that sees them climb to sixteenth in Liga Segunda and four points above the drop zone.

Bautista was given a straight red on 36 minutes for a foul on Lago Junior, and it was Lago Junior's centre four minutes into the second period that forced David Fernandez to put through his own goal. Despite being a man down, Oviedo caused problems for Mallorca who relaxed rather too much at times. But Mallorca survived and will head off next week to play lowly Llagostera, hopeful of a possible further three points to create more daylight between them and the relegation positions.
