English RCDM | RCD Mallorca

RCD Mallorca turned the form book on it’s head with the most unlikely away result of the season in the most difficult of locations. Unbeaten at home in the league this season until today, UD Las Palmas’ play off push under new boss Pepe Mel was halted abruptly as RCD Mallorca fly high in the Canaries. The victory for RCD Mallorca was not only season defining, it also all but kills the play off dreams of one of their challengers.

The result sees RCD Mallorca return to the top six promotion places, ahead of Cadiz on their head to head results, having taken 4 points from the South Coast side. Such small issues could prove to be decisive come the end of the season. What is certain is that now the club must stop speaking of 50 points for survival and start to aim for the sky to see who they can chase down.

Last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Real Oviedo at Son Moix was the opening game of the Segunda weekend. What followed will have left Mallorca fans open mouthed and blew the race for the top six wide open.

Mallorca Keep their Destiny in their Own HandsMallorca managed to keep their destiny in their own hands on Saturday by sneaking victory in an often tight game at stadium Son Moix. They came up against a stubborn Real Oviedo side who came with little intention other than to defend and leave with a point, a game plan that was scuppered by another strike from left back Pervis Estupiñan.

The Ecuadorian, on loan from Premier League Watford, has discovered an ability of scoring crucial goals since his inclusion in the team following injury to Salva Ruiz four months ago. Saturday’s winning goal was his third goal in ten games, a remarkable return for a left back, with those goals contributing 7 points to the team’s tally alone.

Mallorca face make or break promotion six pointer 🇬🇧


Following last week’s ‘so near yet so far’ performance against Elche CF, Mallorca face play off rivals Real Oviedo in a make or break promotion six pointer. If the Vermillion are to stand any chance of making sixth spot then the path to glory starts on Saturday at Son Moix, in what has become a must win game.

Real Oviedo currently sit two points ahead of Mallorca in the race for the play offs and a win would peg back their opponents and Mallorca leap frog them at a crucial stage of the season. Equally, a defeat for the home side at this stage would all but end their ambitions of playing in La Liga in 2019-20.

Cynical Elche CF Wrestle away Play off Dreams 🇬🇧


Mallorca’s play off charge took a huge blow this afternoon, being held at home by the cynical Elche CF in an eventful game which the referee struggled to wrestle control of throughout.
