Osasuna hold on to the last Champions League spot with a 1-1 draw at managerless Mallorca. Javier Aguirre's side are proving to be one of the revelations of the season, and they should have taken the lead in a first half which they dominated, with Bakayoko and Valdo both missing chances to put them ahead.

Mallorca had still not found anyone to take over after Pacheco was sacked last week, and Tomeu Llomparte stood in as he had done the season before. The caretaker manager had lined up with several changes, including a third forward Jesús Perera, and the ex Albacete man was the only one to test Sanzol before the break.

The second half started as the first had ended, with Bakayoko breaking through but firing a shot tamely at Leo Franco. Gradually the home side came back though, with Muñoz deflecting an effort from Eto'o onto the post and Fernando Niño claiming a penalty when brought down by Muñoz in the area a few minutes later.

The goals finally arrived within a minute of each other near the end, with Nadal heading home a corner seven minutes from full time to put the locals in front. Whilst they were still celebrating though, Osasuna took a quick kick off, and Valdo found Webó for him to beat Leo Franco with a shot from a tight angle.
