Real Mallorca, with a somewhat experimental starting XI, overcame a poor Alcorcon 0-2 to move up into third place in La Liga SmartBank. Once again, we kept a clean sheet making it seven in a row, a club record. Coach Luis Garcia Plaza made no fewer than six changes from the lacklustre 0-0 draw against Albacete last Thursday. Mallorca had never won in Alcorcon’s tiny Santo Domingo ground in six visits but they well and truly buried that statistic with a comprehensive victory. The home side almost got off to a dream start as early as the third minute when Hugo Fraile’s point blank shot crashed into the post, although it looked like Reina had it covered. Mallorca went ahead with the first clear cut chance they had in the 19th minute. Galarreta put a deep pass over to Antonio Sanchez and the Palma-born youngster hammered in the opener from a tight angle, a brilliant goal, 0-1.
