MALLORCA TODAY - Real Mallorca 2 : 3 Deportivo La Coruña

Mallorca, despite losing last time out to Real Madrid, had been on something of a roll. At home to bottom side Depor, Mallorca would have good reason to be confident. And so ...

Well, things started well enough, Victor putting Mallorca ahead after nineteen minutes, but Depor struck back within six minutes and from then on it was mostly downhill for Mallorca. The match was even enough, but Depor were making the better opportunities and after the break Marchena and then Riki with a header gave the visitors a lead that only a late goal from Nsue could cut. It wasn't enough and the result was frankly a disaster for Mallorca who now find Depor only a point behind them. It isn't all over as five points cover Depor in bottom place and Granada in sixteenth, but next week it is Barça away for Mallorca before they take on fellow strugglers Vigo (who drew with Barça yesterday) in a fortnight.
