1-0. 32. Güiza. Ran on to Arango pass and fired shot across Ricardo.

Mallorca kept up alive their hopes of a UEFA Cup spot after a late 2-1 victory over Osasuna, and they are now only three points behind sixth placed Racing in the table. Ricardo tipped an early effort from Nunes over for a corner, and Moyà did likewise from Juanfran at the other end before La Liga's top scorer Güiza opened the scoring for the locals on the half hour mark.

Moyà had to be at his best to keep out an Astudillo header just before the break, and Arango had a strike ruled out for a previous foul after the restart. Substitute Portillo appeared to have saved a vital point for the visitors when he turned in Juanfran's cross, but soon afterwards he got himself sent off for a late tackle on Monreal.

Osasuna's luck ran out after that though, referee Velasco Carballo turning down a penalty claim when Borja Valero clearly blocked a shot with his arm. Play went up the other end, and with Juanfran lying injured and the visitors appealing for the ball to be put out of play, Valero crossed in for Trejo to score the winner. The game ended in a minor brawl as a result, but Osasuna had lost again and they stay in the bottom three as a result.
