Mallorca are just two points off the European spots after coming from behind to beat Racing Santander 1-2. The Cantabrians were hoping to start to pick up points after facing the big four in their opening four games. And they started well, Marcano heading them in to the lead from Colsa's long free kick midway through the first half. Serrano had brought a good save out Moyà minutes before the goal, and Tchité hit the bar and fired another shot just wide of the post before the break.

But Mallorca were looking for revenge after missing out on a UEFA Cup spot to their opponents on the last day of last season, and with the first half already in injury time Varela picked up a pass from Corrales and fired an angled shot past Toño to equalise. It was a killer blow, and the visitors took over from then on, with Webó and Aduriz both testing Toño after the restart. Still the game seemed to be heading for a draw, but with four minutes to go Webó got on the end of Jurado's corner to head what was to prove the winner.

Both keepers had work to do before the end however, Toño saving twice from Keita and Moyà stopping a last gasp effort from Juanjo. The scoreline didn't change though, and Racing ended the weekend down in next to bottom spot having only picked up two points to date. It wasn't what they had planned, but they have to forget about that for now and concentrate on Thursday night's UEFA Cup tie in Finland.
