A lot of the 22,051 crowd who packed right into a rocking Son Moix on Tuesday night time to look at Actual Mallorca play Actual Sociedad within the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg, had been anticipating one other blood and thunder cup tie just like the one towards Girona within the final spherical. As an alternative they received a lacklustre recreation dominated for lengthy intervals by the guests. They managed the ball higher, handed the ball higher and made greater than 500 passes, having 5 pictures on course to Actual Mallorca’s none. Sociedad ought to have gained this recreation comfortably they usually missed some unbelievable sitters, particularly from their lanky Nigerian striker Sadiq.
Each groups performed an intense match however in the long run it completed goalless, such a disgrace because the environment was terrific as the gang actually received behind the Palma aspect. Our defence minus the suspended Raillo put up a magnificent rearguard motion however it was upfront the place we lacked any penetration. Strikers Abdon Prats and Larin tried laborious, however I’m afraid Larin, as soon as once more, flatters to deceive.
In the long run it’s all the pieces to play for within the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg in entrance of 40,000 Sociedad followers on February 27. Mallorca haven’t gained there for 12 years and haven’t scored there for 16 years.
In cup ties it’s anyone’s recreation however Mallorca should do quite a bit higher to count on to achieve their third cup ultimate in 108 years.
Up subsequent for Mallorca is a “should win” six pointer at house to Rayo Vallecano on Sunday at 4.15pm. Maybe then we will witness Mallorca scoring at house within the league, one thing we haven’t witnessed for the reason that new Son Moix inauguration recreation towards Celta Vigo that completed 1-1.
