Muriqi makes Valencia suffer and Osasuna overtakes Athletic for the Conference

Mallorca prevails over Valencia (1-0) and the ‘lions’ fall in El Sadar (2-0)


RCD Mallorca beat Valencia CF 1-0 this Thursday, with a goal from Vedat Muriqi to make the ‘che’ team suffer again for their permanence, while CA Osasuna beat Athletic Club 2-0 in a duel key for occupying seventh place in LaLiga Santander, which closed its 36th matchday in this way.

At the Visit Mallorca Estadi, the locals showed a better version and were rewarded for their persistence in the 64th minute. Kang-In Lee slipped through the Valencian defense on the left flank and crossed into the area, where the Kosovar striker rose to score headlong and seal the vermilion triumph.

The lack of offensive ideas was a slab for Valencia, which barely improved with the entry of Justin Kluivert midway through the second half. The Dutch striker, who missed a good chance to tie, thus prolonged a fateful week after the assault suffered at his house recently, including aggression against his sentimental partner.

This victory put Mallorca with 47 points in the quiet area of ​​the league table, still with the mathematical hope of reaching seventh place. For its part, the ‘che’ club lost again after three games and once again complicated its future in the First Division, as it has accumulated 40 points and is ahead of the relegation zone by only two.

Meanwhile, El Sadar revived a duel between semifinalists of the Copa del Rey, also repeating the Pamplona smile. He made it 1-0 against Budimir with a header on minute 50′, from Jon Moncayola’s cross, and Lucas Torró closed Osasuna’s victory with a 2-0 win on minute 77, finishing off a timely pass from Aimar Oroz low in the small area .

This result helped the rojillo team to add 50 points and get into seventh place, which gives access to the 2023/24 Conference League. It precisely surpassed Athletic, overwhelmed in defense by the mischief of Osasunista Abde Ezzalzouli. Also with 50 points, the people from Bilbao will have to change their negative dynamics to get into Europe.
