Mallorca and Atlético Madrid drew 0-0 in the San Moix stadium on Saturday evening. Most of the chances fell to the home side, with Arango shooting wide and Víctor hitting the post in a play which was eventually pulled up for offside. The visitors only caused any problems for the local defence with an overhead kick from Galletti, and Víctor and Ballesteros both headed wide before the interval.

Víctor headed wide again after the restart following good work by Maxi López, but the introduction of Agüero revitalised Atlético, with Luccin bringing a good save out of Prats with a free kick, Víctor Bravo almost heading the rebound back in to the net and Agúero himself also seeing another effort saved by the veteran keeper (who now heads up the Zamora table after a fourth game in a row without letting in a goal).

Substitute Diego Tristán could have won it for the hosts in the dying minutes had he been able to control the ball in front of goal, but the final whistle went soon afterwards and both sides had to settle for a point. Atlético have now gone three games without scoring a goal, and the European spots are moving further from their reach.
