Mallorca continued their uphill battle against relegation with a 1-1 draw against Rayo Vallecano. The result moves them even with Granada on points but they remain in 17th, and in the relegation zone, thanks to goal differential.
Both the goals came in the game's opening 15 minutes with Rayo striking first in the 7th minute thank to Piti. Mallorca responded well, equalizing seven minutes later when Alejandro Alfaro beat Rubén. Despite being the better looking side the rest of the match, Mallorca couldn't fine the winner and were saved from a far worse result as Rayo hit the woodwork twice.
Both goals came in the first 13 minutes with Piti putting Rayo ahead in the seventh minute only for Alejandro Alfaro to level six minutes later.
Rayo remains five points behind a potential Europa League spot with only six games left to play. Mallorca face fellow relegation battlers Real Zaragoza next week.
