Real Mallorca 1 - Lugo 1

Mallorca in twentieth place against Lugo in seventh: one team battling relegation, the other with eyes on a play-off spot (Levante and Girona, the top two, have very clear water between themselves and the play-off hopefuls).

Brandon nearly gave Mallorca a lead in the second minute when his header went close. If this hinted at good times ahead, they were dashed when Lugo striker Caballero scored from a corner after sixteen minutes. Lugo were dominating possession and offering far more of a goalscoring threat until Mallorca sprang more into life as the break approached, and Domínguez's fortieth minute effort was deflected past the post.

In the second period, very little was happening for Mallorca. Ansotegi headed just past from a Brandon cross with fifteen minutes left, and then, with four minutes left, Lekic headed in the equaliser. Dalmau struck the woodwork immediately afterwards, as Mallorca desperately sought the winner, which wasn't to come.
