0-1. 18. Darío Silva. Ran on to beat Miki after Lussenhoff mis-hit clearance.
1-1. 39. Bruggink. Bent free kick from outside area into top corner of net.

Mallorca and Sevilla shared the points in a 1-1 draw, in which the visitors dominated the first half and the locals the second. Darío Silva opened the scoring in the eighteenth minute, winning the ball off Lussenhoff and running on to beat Miki, who was standing in for the suspended Leo Franco. Referee Teixeira Vitienes waved away the home side's protests for a foul by the Uruguayan on the defender, as he had done earlier on for a possible penalty in the other area. Later in the half Sevilla could have gone further ahead after Darío Silva put through Casquero, but his shot hit the post.

An injury though to Reyes just before half time left the Andalucians without their inspiration, and Mallorca came back into the game. Bruggink made it all square with a well struck free kick, and Eto'o should have hit the winner later on but couldn't beat Notario. In the end though a fair result which leaves both in midtable.
