Real Mallorca 1 - Levante 1

Levante, romping away with the second division title, visiting Mallorca desperately wishing they were not chomping at the bit of relegation. What could possibly go right for Mallorca, therefore?

An early substitution for Levante because of injury did little to inspire Mallorca. Jason scored six minutes later for the visitors. The same Jason hit the bar for Levante midway through the half. Brandon went close on the half hour. Otherwise, Levante were in charge, and Roger might well have made it two just before the break.

Mallorca rallied in the second half, Moutinho's efforts finally being rewarded with Ansotegi's 70th minute headed equaliser. By then Levante were down to ten men; Rober had been sent on his way for a second yellow. Moutinho, having set the centre back up for the goal, almost managed a repeat ten minutes later; Ansotegi headed just past the post. It was Moutinho who supplied the centre for Raíllo to head high and wide in added time, as Mallorca sought a winner. It wasn't to be.

A good point for Mallorca, but relegation still very much haunts them.
