Real Mallorca 1-1 Malaga
A last-gasp Aritz Aduriz strike helped Mallorca salvage a point against ten-man Malaga at the ONO Estadi.
Mallorca have been free-scoring at home this season, with only Real Madrid and Barcelona scoring more goals on their own patch, but this afternoon they were frustrated by a well-disciplined Malaga side who are fighting for their lives at the foot of the table.
Indeed their defensive display was all the more impressive given that centre half Milan Stepanov was shown his second yellow card on 44 minutes, leaving the Andalucians with ten men for the entire second half.
Mallorca had the majority of the possession and chances as a result, but their finishing was uniformly wayward. Gonzalo Castro, Aduriz and Marti all created openings but they failed to threaten Gustavo Munua in the visitors goal.
Then, incredibly, Victor Obinna rammed home a powerful shot with just 4 minutes remaining, and it appeared the ten men had stolen the most unlikely of wins.
But Mallorca rescued a precious point in injury time, when Aduriz finally forced the ball home following a frantic scramble. However, coach Gregorio Manzano may see this result as two points dropped in the race for fourth.
