Nil-nil between Atletico Baleares and Real Mallorca. | Miquel Àngel Borràs
Real Mallorca played out a soporific goalless draw away at arch rivals Atletico Baleares on Saturday night. The mini-submarine Villareal B lead Group III after three games with nine points, Elche and Mallorca are on seven and Valencia Mestalla, who surprisingly lost 1-0 to Deportiva Ibiza, on six. We are the only team in Group III to have a clean sheet and only one of four out of the 80 teams in the whole Segunda B countrywide to do so. In attack Mallorca need to score more goals but it’s early doors. All the pre-match hype built up all last week was about this being the first league derby for 37 years, but I’m afraid the hysteria off the pitch didn’t match the play on it.
