Mallorca wins after the scare in Soria and Las Palmas bids farewell to García Pimienta

Celta and Valencia enjoyed a nice final draw


Mallorca beat Getafe (1-2) this Sunday on the last day of LaLiga EA Sports, marked by a strong hit by David Soria with Cyle Larin after which the Balearic goals arrived in stoppage time, while García Pimienta said goodbye with a good tribute and a 1-1 for Las Palmas against Deportivo Alavés, and RC Celta and Valencia had fun in a 2-2.

Javier Aguirre’s team put an end to a campaign that will be remembered for having reached the final of the Copa del Rey 21 years later, with permanence tied last week. ‘Geta’, with the option of climbing some position in the table, was better and took the lead at the start of the second half through Gastón Álvarez.

José Bordalás’ team had the game in their hands until twenty minutes from the end when that shot from Soria came. The goalkeeper remained motionless on the ground and there were moments of panic in the Coliseum. The ambulance even entered the grass but, finally, as a sign of relief, the goalkeeper climbed into the vehicle on his own.

The bad body that remained on the grass affected his teammates more and Mallorca, who had probably already been thinking about a final push, turned the score around in stoppage time through Muriqi and Maffeo. Farewell to Aguirre with victory and with scare but at home six seasons for Jaime Mata and Nemanja Maksimovic.

The last game in Gran Canaria was also a farewell match, where García Pimienta said goodbye and the yellow fans recognized his good football and promotion to First Division, despite a bad end to the campaign. Álvaro Valles was once again providential in Las Palmas, stopping a penalty against Giuliano Simeone, but after the restart, Carlos Vicente ended up making it 0-1 for the Basques. With the local team suffering, Moleiro took a step forward and Marc Cardona signed the 1-1 that sealed the season of confirmation in First Division for both.

On the other hand, Balaídos appreciated the last dance of the season with a very entertaining draw against a Valencia that kept ninth place. Thierry Rendall, replacing the injured José Luis Gayà, took advantage of his opportunity and was the protagonist of the ‘che’ team already after five minutes, in Carlos Domínguez’s 0-1 own goal.

Celta looked to Iago Aspas, their lighthouse in the second half of the season, and the local idol did not take long to get his team going, scoring a penalty to make it 1-1 after the restart. However, Alberto Marí caused another one in the other area that he himself converted. The match entered its climax and Aspas saw Douvikas to make it 2-2, with the peace of mind on the field of having nothing at stake.
