A last minute goal by Giovani gave Mallorca a vital 1-0 win over relegation rivals Celta. The two teams started the Monday night game level at the bottom of the table after recent poor results, the locals having lost their last three matches, and the Galicians having only picked up one point out of a possible fifteen. After a nervous start the first chance fell to the visitors, Alex López running through from midfield to fire a shot just wide of the post, but for the rest of the first half the home side were on top, Javi Varas doing well to keep out two dangerous free kicks from Giovani, and Bigas heading a corner over the top. Celta recovered in the second half though, Jonathan Vila and Oubiña just failing to hit the target, and Aouate forced in to a good save from Túñez. Bermejo and Túñez both had penalty appeals turned down when they were brought down in the area by Geromel, but with a few minutes to go Varas had to save from Alfaro, and with the game in the third minute of injury time the keeper could only push out a Hemed header from a Pina cross, and Giovani was on hand to fire the rebound back in to the net. The result takes the islanders to within a point of safety, and leaves Abel Resino's team in last spot, albeit just three points behind their hosts in the table.
