OSASUNA 0-MALLORCA 2 |  Mallorca decides to stay

It is rare that the match that closes the competition does not have something special, and the one this afternoon between Osasuna and Mallorca was not an exception either. The rojillos put the emotion, with the farewell of Oier and the players who will stop wearing the shirt of the Navarrese team, such as Inigo Perez and Ramalho. They also wanted to finish ninth the season.

Mallorca, with the former coach of the rojillos, Javier Aguirre, at the head, put on nerves, by risking permanence. They depended on themselves. It was worth the victory, the tie in case of not winning Cádiz and losing if the Andalusians did too.

The match began without a clear dominator, although the locals had the ball a little more, and the Balearic Islands seemed to be weighed down by nerves. The Balearic practically did not step on the rival area. In minute 16, Maffeo had the first chance for the Balearic Islands. From then on, Aguirre’s men seemed somewhat more awake, although without displaying the tension that a team that is playing for permanence is supposed to have. Muriqi was able to put his team ahead after a set piece, but his header went high. Salva Sevilla forced Herrera to show off after a free kick. Budimir had it on the brink of rest. The Mallorcans made sure that the game became locked, wasting time. The siege of Osasuna in the last minutes was continuous.

As soon as the match resumed, Ángel beat Herrera after a braided play by Aguirre’s men. The goal unleashed the madness of the nearly 600 Balearic fans who populated the stands of El Sadar. Mallorca pressed trying to defend their result. The tables changed and it was the rojillos who began to tighten. Budimir again was close to scoring heel. As the minutes passed, Mallorca was seen with more tension and the locals were looking for the equalizer. In the 71st minute, one of the most emotional moments of the night came. Oier, amid a huge ovation, was replaced by his teammate and friend Roberto Torres, ending a lifetime in Osasuna. The pressure was transferred to the field of play with the victory of Cádiz (a second goal was annulled). The Majorcans knew that a goal from Osasuna would condemn them to the Second Division. But it was the opposite, in minute 83, Grenier scored the second for Mallorca, after a rejection by Herrera. On its own merits, Mallorca will continue one more year in the First Division.
