Disappointment at Mallorca, where a 2-0 victory over Espanyol was not enough to give them the Champions League spot that they so wanted after Sevilla won at almería in the last minute. Gregorio Manzano's side had won fourteen of their home games this season, and they started well against an opponent that already made sure of another season in the top flight. Víctor had a penalty appeal turned down early on, and midway through the first half the striker opened the scoring with a first time shot after Chori Castro crossed in from the left wing.
Borja Valero and Víctor both went close after that, and although Ben Sahar tested Aouate at the other end soon after the restart, Mario Suárez made sure of the win with a well struck volley from Valero's corner later on. Their game finished before the match in Almería, and the excited players and fans watched the outcome on the ground's big screens. But everything ended with Rodri's late goal, and they must now wait for UEFA's judgement on the club's delicate financial position to know whether they will be allowed in to the Europa League next season.
