Celta came back from behind twice to beat Mallorca 2-4 and save Lotina's job for another week at least. In the absence of the suspended Eto'o, Bruggink had twice put the Islanders ahead, the first time with a shot which deflected in off Berizzo and then from the penalty spot after referee Megia Dávila ruled that Raúl Martín had been fouled in the area. José Ignacio made it all square the first time though, firing a shot through a crowd of players after other efforts had been blocked by the defence, and then Jesuli levelled the scores with a well placed header down into the bottom corner of Leo Franco's net.

A few minutes prior to Jesuli's goal, Megia had left the home side with ten men after Nené was shown a rigorous red card for a tackle on Milosevic, Luis Aragonés having to come on the pitch to take off the young Brazilian as he protested the decision. And with the numbers in their favour, Luccin put the visitors ahead for the first time with five minutes to go with a second controversial penalty for a supposed foul on José Ignacio. Mallorca had nothing left, and Milosevic wrapped things up with a fourth goal in injury time after Jandro set him up. The result takes Celta out of the relegation zone, although they could be back there on Sunday if Betis win their game.
