Hércules are the second team to be relegated this season after they could only draw 2-2 with Mallorca. The Alicante based side were already facing a difficult battle, especially after Tuesday's results left them seven points away from safety, but they got off to the best possible start when Sendoa beat Lux twice in the first half, both times from passes by Kiko Femenía. With a quarter of an hour to go though Víctor Casadesús pulled one back after Pereira set him up, and five minutes later Webó ran on to a long ball from midfield to lob Velthuizen and level the scores. It was an important point for Michael Laudrup's side, who despite having 43 points are still not mathematically sure of another season in the top flight.
