Real Mallorca 1 : 3 Sporting Gijón
A minute's silence was held for the former Mallorca and national team coach Luis Aragonés. Perhaps the emotion got to Mallorca. Goals either side of the half-time break gave the visitors a two-nil lead, but Sporting had been the better team for most of the first period before Cases scored two minutes before the pause. Canella added the second on 53 minutes, and this more or less settled the match, Geijo pulling one back for Mallorca with a minute left, only for Carmona to restore Gijón's two-goal advantage. A bad result for Mallorca against second-placed Sporting. Mallorca are in ninth position, subject to later results.
