Almería moved up level with Deportivo in eighth spot after beating Mallorca 2-1. Negredo had not been included in Del Bosque's squad for the upcoming friendly, but he sent a message to the coach with both of his side's goals. The striker hooked a shot past Lux on the stroke of half time following a good run by Guilherme, and then converted a second half penalty after Castro handled in the area.
Earlier in the game Piatti had brought a good save out of Lux, and then hit the side netting a few minutes later. Mallorca's reply was a volley over the top from Aduríz, and a header from a corner by Nunes which Diego Alves somehow got a hand to. After the restart though they disappeared from view, and it was not until the last minute that substitute Keita turned on a sixpence to score a late consolation for the Islanders.
