Mallorca 2-0 Getafe: Survival still not assured after poor showing in Palma

1-0 Nunes 25'
2-0 Aki 67'

Back to losing ways after last week's success, Getafe offer little at Mallorca...
... Results elsewhere make for sobering reading for coach Míchel...

Getafe's quest for Liga survival continutes after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Real Mallorca in Palma.

The hosts were superior throughout, and a goal in each half saw to it that the Barralets themselves all but secured their place in the Spanish top flight for the 2011-12 campaign thanks to Jose Nunes and Akihiro 'Aki' Ienaga.

The Catalan side took the lead in the 25th minute when Nunes headed home unmarked at the near post following a Sergio Tejera corner: one of the easiest goals he'll ever score.

Míchel made two substitutions at the break, altering Geta's formation in the process, but this failed to bear fruit as Mallorca managed a second goal.

Substitute Aki doubled the advantage with 23 minutes left to go, the Japanese netting a goal nearly identical to the first, with Dani Parejo failing to pick up his man.

The Azulones missed two gilt-edged chances as the clock ran down, Javier Arizmendi fluffing an easy opportunity before Miku hit the post, and thus the visitors left all three points on the island.

With survival still not assured and the club's future up in the air, Getafe face a tough trip to Villarreal next Sunday. After that comes the visit of Almería in a game that is incredibly vital, especially in light of the fact that Hércules and Málaga both managed victories today.

Mallorca: Aouate; Joao Victor, Nunes, Ramis, Ayode; Tejera (Aki 60), Martí; Nsue, De Guzmán, Castro (Víctor Casadesús 69); Webó (Cendrós 90).

Ustari; Miguel Torres, Cata Díaz, Marcano, Mané; Víctor Sánchez (Sardinero 46), Boateng, Casquero (Arizmendi 67), Parejo; Colunga (Pedro Ríos 46), Miku.
