Mallorca are back up to fourth in the table after a 1-0 victory over Villarreal on Sunday evening. The visitors were under new management after B team coach Juan Carlos Garrido took over from Valverde midweek, and they had the better of the match, Godín heading a corner wide early on and Llorente failing to convert two or three chances either side of half time. But with ten minutes to go Nunes got above the defence to head a Julio Alvarez free kick past Diego López, and Mallorca had their tenth league home win in a row.
