MALLORCA TODAY - Real Mallorca 1 : 1 Osasuna

First game back in charge for coach Gregorio Manzano and against Osasuna, just as relegation-threatened as Mallorca. A typical six-pointer, and it was the visitors who looked just a touch more threatening, Rubén heading in but the strike being ruled out for a foul on Aouate. A string of corners for Mallorca led to nothing. Hutton was pulled off at half-time, Hemed coming on to increase Mallorca's attacking options. The change looked to have nearly worked nearly 30 minutes into the second period, but Hemed hit the post. And then, disaster for Mallorca, Lolo heading in from a corner for Osasuna. But ... might this have been the most important moment of the season for Mallorca? Geromel headed the equaliser in added time, Pina having just before seen a header saved.

Things are still critical for Mallorca. Depending on the result of the later Deportivo-Granada match, they could go bottom but the point means they haven't lost touch, being four points behind Osasuna in seventeenth. Next weekend (17 February), away at Valencia.
